    What 8x10 Films?

    Hello to All,
    In view of the demise of TMX AND TMY IN 8X10, aside from digital negatives, what are people using to make prints of Pt/Pd;Gum/dichromate;etc.?

    Was TMX ever popular for that?

    ic-racer,
    Yes. Before KODAK, in its divine wisdom, started putting a UV Blocker in it.

    Ilford FP4+ and Efke 100 have been my favorites, never got past them to try any of the Kodak films.

    If you want a 400 speed film, can't help there since I don't use them..but would guess Ilford would work there as well

    HP5+ is correctly available in 8x10 but is not very good for alternative processes such as Platinum Paladium. HP5+ does not build density as well as TMY, Efke100, and FP4+
    Delta 100 is a good choice to in addition to those mentioned.
    The now discontinued Foma pan 200 was also good for alternative processes.
    As far as 400Iso film there are none at the moment.

    Edit, Foma recently released a 400Iso film in 8x10 but i have no experience with this film yet. Maybe someone on the forum can comment.

    Was just listing HP5+ as 400 ISO was mentioned. Delta 100 builds density very nicely.

    Graphic arts ("litho") film. It is cheap as dirt, it is versatile (gives different results in different developers), and it has as much density as one could possibly need.

    I noticed the same with HP5+ -- but I was always going to give it a try in D-19, and perhaps a staining developer might make it more useful for alt processes.

    X-ray film is cheap and definitely can build up contrast. Takes careful handling (emulsion on both sides). The Agfa film I have seems to be about 400 ISO under the big blue sky, but seems to drop some when under the trees. I am not 100% sold on the stuff yet. I just happen to have about 300 sheets of it (14x17). I have been using it in a 7x17, and have done a few in 8x10.

    Its slower, but I like FP4+ for both pt/pd and carbon.

    Alas, Kodak Copy Film was a pleasure to use -- talk about building up density! I shot a box of Ilford copy film...nice also, but not quite the same thing.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    HP5+ works fine with Pt/Pd.
