    Agfa N31P

    OK, first off, I'm not trying to sell it, not yet at least...

    I had a 43 1/4" x 100' roll of N31p given to me. From what I can find googling, it's definately an ortho emulsion, used to be very popular with the alt process crowd for interpostiives. Side benefit is that it has a decent sensitivity, for in camera use (#'s I've found range from 30 to 75). so, gobs faster than any other lith film I have hanging around here. Now the question, should I hack it up into some 8x10's and shoot it, or try to swap for a bunch of 8x10 conventional film? (the last thing I need is more ortho lith type film, I already have several hundred sheets of 16x20.)

    This film can be used for several alt processes It can be used to produce continuous tone films for photogravure. There are several development formulas available that can be used to produce continuous tone in varying contrast. It is however, as you mention, an ortho film. If you are planning to use it for an alt process, its got some legitimate uses. However, in my opinion, I would rather use a modern emulsion for standard photography.

    The film might fetch a handsome price on ebay since it has been discontinured for many years now. It was used for making enlarged negatives as well as interpositives. I still have a couple of boxes of 4x5 in my film freezer.
