    Hi !
    Rollei is said to produce such a film. If what I was told is true, the H&D curve raise to a certain point and then, upon further exposure, start to decrease for a "normal" emulsion. So if you pre-expose the film to that level of light, any light added will further reduce density when the film is processed. You will have a transparency instead of a negative with a standard B&W film treatment. I used once the Kodak stuff to duplicate B&W negatives. I was in high school at my camera club and it was in the 70's... So I speak from memory here ;-)
    I've not yet seen the Rollei stuff and IDK who is making it or if it is really made yet.

    Has anyone used any of these processes for current films?
    I'm considering trying to make some 11x14 slides and I'd rather not use DR5.
    Any ideas for the logistics of re-exposing?
    Any kits that don't require re-exposing?
    Help?
    Possibly Fomapan R100, although apparently it requires a special developer (I just checked and Freestyle says send it to dr5, although I could have sworn there were a Foma kit for doing it yourself...). Haven't tried it personally.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    I know we tend to be a bunch of nostalgics here, but why is everyone jumping in with dated recollections of fine grain release positive and the like? Seems kind of silly, given that kodak is currently producing the Tmax 100 Direct Positive Kit.

    B&H has it here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._Positive.html

    I believe the R100 is the kind of film as the Agfa Scala. Not a direct positive emulsion.

    I have some of the direct positive developer in the cabinet and have been wondering what I'm going to do with it... now that I read about the tmax kit maybe I'll give that a go.
