Rollei Direct Positive LF petition
I've hacked together a petition for Rollei to produce the new Direct Positive (RDP) film for large format, which they don't initially plan to do:
This is our latest Rollei (RSD) data:
Including 4x5", 8x10" and 10x10" (and of course 35mm and 120 roll film).
So maybe your LF petition was already succesfull
I will check tomorrow by Rollei marketing manager what is the actual situation.
(Dutch Rollei/Maco distributor)
There was an error in the script, but that is fixed now

ROLLEI SLIDE DIRECT as sheet film!
The messages in the internet are incorrect, that ROLLEI/MACO is bringing the ROLLEI RSD film "NOT" as a sheet film. The LF-film is already available, as 4x5" sheet film!
MACO PHOTO PRODUCTS is Stapelfeld/Hamburg GERMANY, has already 10x10" and 4x5" sheet film on stock. But, in 100 ea. sheets packs only!
Price for 100 ea. sheets 10x10" = 1,290 USD per pack
Price for 100 ea. sheets 4x5" = 321 USD per pack
Immeditely available ex stock from ROLLEI/MACO, Germany.
The ROLLEI RSD film has according to the maufacturer, a sensitivity of 10 ISO. If strongly exposed, the film can be processed in ALL powerful (high energy) working developers.
ROLLEI/MACO's recommendation is the ROLLEI HIGH SPEED (RHS) developer, dilution 1+7. 20°C, 12 minutes, with very good results! If this might be not sifficient, then use the ROLLEI HIGH CONTRAST (RHC) 1+4, 20°C, 8 minutes.

It seems 4x5 is available for ~EUR 20 per 10 sheets by now
