    definitely, Ian. Nigel is very helpful - and I think that is worth paying a tiny bit more for. I understand that the range will be increasing soon too - all the more reason to offer our support.

    Some of the Maco products are sold in the U.S. as Cachet. I've been using Cachet/Maco Expo graded paper for enlargements for a while, and I really like it. It looks good in Agfa Neutol WA, but also responds very well to amidol. Lately I've been processing it mainly in Michael Smith's amidol formula for enlarging papers.

    Thanks for the info, Jim. Maybe J&C can pick up the slack or I'll just order from Europe when the stock runs out.

    "Thanks Matt, unfrotunatelly they only offer roll film....tsk tsk..."

    If you click on the "cart" under a film type, all the sizes come up- looks like the cube and ISO 25 is offered in 9x12 cm, and the IR in 4x5...

    anyone know if I can get away with 9x12 cm film in 4x5 holders, or does someone sell holders (that will fit the Shen-Hao) or some sort of an insert?

    I'd like to try thier chemicals too, does anyone know what distinguishes a "lith" developer or what is meant by the "lith effect"

    The 9x12cm holders are the same (external) size as 4x5" ones. They can be used on the same cameras - as indeed I do. Since some films are only available in 9x12cm and some in 4x5", I have both sizes of holders. 9x12cm is very common in Germany, Sweden and eastern Norway, while 4x5" dominates here in the west

    Lisco, Fidelity, and all the other normal brands fit. Especially Linhof

    Lith printing is a whole 'nother discussion, as well as the subject of the recent series by Tim Rudman in "Black & White Photography" (Ailsa's Rag).

    We can get the Expo paper direct from the factory that produced it for Maco if there is enough interest in it. If anyone is interested please contact us by email.

    Thanks, John. I'm stocked up for now, but when I'm running low, I'll definitely be in touch.
