    I use, and teach my students to use, ortho lith film from Freestyle. Using a soft working developer like LC-1, or very dilute HC 110, or D-71 1+5 makes it easy. There is a recent thread on APUG or LF Forum about this.

    Oops - hit the wrong key. That should be D-76 1+5.

    I also use ortho lith film developed by inspection in a low contrast developer.

    Both of these steps yield positives. I have reversal procesed lith and fine grained with limited success. Usually I just contact it a second time.

    I know this is not the same low contrast film meant for the job, but these methods suffice for my duped neg needs. The flashing suggestion is a good one; it should suppress contrast.
    Can you still get Fine Grained Positive film in anything but 35mm? I used to buy it in 8x10 from Photo Warehouse (Ultrafine on line) but they told me that nobody makes it anymore.

    Ive been trying the continuous tone dup. film and John is right; it is seriously slow. They rate it at ASA 4 but I find it at least 3 stops slower in the darkroom. NZE: I haven't tried it with a cold head. Thanks for the suggestion.
