    Getting ready for my first contact prints

    Okay, I have my 8x10 2D, a couple of filmholders on the way.
    Now I need a contact printing frame and film. Any suggestions for what to get?
    As the JandC Pro 100 is the most economical film to start with, I`d like some input how this film is for that task. I`ll develop in Pyrocat HD mostly.
    I have some Forte Polywarmtone/Neutol WA to start with.

    I have been using the J and C 200 for a few years now, and VERY pleased with the results. I was developing in HC-110 thought, so I could not tell you how it is with Pyro. One problem-J and C is currently out of stock on the their films, and who knows how long it will be till it comes in.

    I have heard, and seen, many great things come from Ekfe film with using Pyro developer, so I recently changed to that. Althought the film is more expensive, I truly believe that you get what you pay for.

    Sorry, I saw you said J and C 100. I am not familar with that film or how well it is, I only have experience with the J and C 200, which is a totally different film.

    I could not recommend something I have not used.

    Yes I know, but I feel more comfortable with a film I`m already used to..
    And of course, it beeing half the price of Efke helps when first trying 8x10..
    Mistakes quadruple in price from now on

    Thanks Jay. I have used the Pro 100 a lot in 120 and 4x5 so I`m familiar with it, I really like it as reminds me of APX 100.. Haven`t seen any coating defects yet om my 4x5`s.

    J+C 100

    JDEF-I already tried this film and sold the rest off cheap as I was getting some weird streaking. But-I am totally in the belief that this has the potential for unequaled photos. I'm going to order some more but ANY tips in developing this are welcome. I already gave up stop bath on all my films in all developers so no more pinholes. I also read somewhere to keep the temp at around 68 degrees.
    Thanks, Peter
    Sorry-didn't mean to hijack the thread or anything-just believe this is worth pursuing and maybe some others would like to try it AGAIN!!
