    Panchromatic Paper/Lith film

    Are there any panchromatic lith films or papers made anymore? For doing separations or in camera work or printing from color negs?

    Where does the lith part figure in? Are you thinking
    of making half tones? Dan

    I could think of many uses. In camera, for one, would be quite interesting and I wouldn't have to pay for full speed film. Plus I have become interested in doing color separation work and without this I would have to add another step in the process.

    Kodak used to make Kodalith pan. I don't think they make it anymore. Ditto with the paper Panalure. Most pan line films went away when scanners became common.

    If you need a pan paper try ra color paper processed in dektol and fixed in a nonhardening fix. The image you get is useable for some things- you'll have to judge.

    Good luck

    There's not enough silver in crystal archive to make a usable black and white image...

    I'm wondering if it would be possible to use Ilford's digital photo papers, which are panchromatic. Unfortunately, the paper is only available on rolls, making it a potentially expensive (and risky) venture.
