    Kodak Double X

    Not sure if anyone is interested, but Keith Canham is trying to see if there's any interest in a run of 4x5 Kodak Double-X film. He needs around 200 boxes to place the order. If you are interested, shoot him an e-mail at kodakfilm@canhamcameras.com He said a 50 sheet box would cost about the same as current Kodak film, so I'm guessing around $100.00/box. I'm not affiliated with Keith in any way, just trying to spread the 4x5 Black and White film love .

    Darn. I'd love being in on that. No money. Heck, that stinks. But good luck.

    What are the characteristics of this film? Is it similar to Plus-X?

    Karl,

    I'm not 100% sure, honestly. Here's some info from Kodak: http://motion.kodak.com/motion/Produ...Films/5222.htm

    Looks pretty nice!

    Thomas,

    This isn't my project. Just spreading the word to try to help Keith get the minimum order so we can all get some tasty looking film in 4x5 format.

    I THINK you are saying it is "softer working" (whatever that means - most films can be developed to the contrast you want with suitable development) than Plus-X an one third the grain size of Tri-X. Of course I understand YMMV but I have no idea what "it is 2x" means. Double-X? Yeah, we know that.
