    Thanks Loris, yes they are probably a little thin for cyanotypes, I generally do platinum/palladium prints, and the negatives should be fine.

    The film was Ilford FP4+, tray processed in Pyrocat HD 2:2:100 dilution for 14 minutes @20C. I would probably go with 16 minutes, next time I am thinking of cyanotypes, or salt prints, but they then get a little thick for palladium.

    Hi Fred, wow, cyanotype needing thicker negatives than palladium is definitely a novelty to me. My usual cyanotype exposure scale is log 1.6 - 2.2 (depending on formulation, paper and environment) and pd needs log 2.4 - 2.9 (again depending on formulation, paper and environment - but that's for pop pd, not develop out pd...) Do you use any type of contrast agent for your pd prints?

    Anyway, steering back to the original topic: I'd like to have one of those 8x10" cameras, but 8x10" film can't be found here in Istanbul, and even if I could find it, it would be prohibitively expensive. I'm happy with my Zero 4x5, best compromise between practicality and quality...

    Regards,
    Loris.

    I have always used develop out process, and I am using the original dichromate for contrast control, usually aiming for a grade 1 contrast with my negatives. Though I have recently started using the Na2 contrast control agent.

    Yes I am fortunate that a camera shop in town which usually has 8x10 film in stock. and yes it is pricey, but given my throughput, is manageable.
