    You need the cans. You need a way to cut it to length and load the cans.

    Neither is that big a problem but it would be nice if somebody still made loaded 15' lengths. Just a dream I know.

    IMAX Film

    IMAX is actually shot on 65mm negative film, perforated. The IMAX prints are on 70mm film. So this option won't work for you.

    Did you call Kodak? As I said, their online documentation states that Tri-X 400TX is supposedly available in 100ftx70mm rolls. From what I could find, this was the only B&W emulsion available in 70mm (with the exception of Efke, but it's unperf).
    Using film since before it was hip.

    I did not indicate any 70mm Efke film, as Maco as one of their major customers doe not list it. But googeling a bit, it seems that at least it was around.
    Thus this will make roughly 4 tyes of B&W emulsions on 70mm base. Two of them unperforated.

    No Michel I didn't contact Kodak, while the 70mm back would be very useful I have enough headaches with product availability in other formats. But thank you for your information.

    By the way, I found an old F-5 Kodak publication, "B&W films", and while it is a bit dated, the 70mm information they give for Tri-X is that it is unperforated. I would not suspect it has changed since, if it is still in production...

    I shot and developed some 70mm perfed film today.It is Kodak 2476 .The prints look fine .I just stuck 5inch long pieces with double sticky tape in a 4x5 film holder and used like normal 4x5 in the Linhoff .I then developed the pieces in a tray in HC110 1-60 for 4 minutes at 22 deg C.I do not know if Kodak still makes the stuff,I got several 1200 ft rolls from work .

    off topic

    Isk,
    you have a long way to go with that films...
    Were you just playing around with that film, or are you prepared to use it regularly in such holders (for panoramas?). In case of the latter, how do you adjust for the correct focus?

    Agx,
    I just wanted to test the film to see if it was still good . The plan is to try and build a trimming device to cut it to the width of 120 for use in my medium format cameras . I did not have a problem with the focus ,as the tape I used is less than 0.1 mm thick . Shooting at F16 with a 240mm lens would certainly give me enough depth of field .Perhaps I should permanently modify a few 4x5 film holders to use for panoramic shots. Thanks for the tip!!
    lsk.
