About 5x7 more popular in Europe; it may perhaps be somewhat exaggerated, perhaps not based on very good evidence, but it's an impression I have at least.
Would this be available in middleast?
How much would this cost? Just wondering since i just discovered ilford distributor in Iran. I wonder if they could bring this here and those direct positive papers.
I tried contacting them but to no avail. Maybe i should try sending email again.
Dear Tenderobject :
Our Iranian distributor cannot import goods from the UK at this time, widely available elsewhere though.

I admit this is going to be very tempting for me once it becomes available. Contact prints off an 8x10 negative are quite lovely!
I was just using my 4x5 TiTAN this past weekend. I've been really into pinhole photography for many years and I'm not going deny I had some reservations about "buying" a pinhole camera. It kind of seemed a little wrong somehow as designing your own camera is part of the appeal of pinhole photography.
That being said, I love my TiTAN and I got over my initial reservations pretty darn quickly. It is light weight and yet very durable, which means I can save a lot of room and weight for more 4x5 backs loaded with film!
When are these units available to order, and is there a price??
I want one!!
When will it be available?
5x7 is my format. I'm kind of sad to see it moving to extinction.
Also: Harman Direct Positive + Titan 8x10 = OMG WANT. That is all.
You need to clue up on pinhole photography. Pinhole cameras do not and never will need sharpness. Of course they are soft and out of focus, but you'll see the majority of pinhole cameras have excellent definition, and that's what's important — the forming of a lucid image devoid of technical refinement.
If you want to see sharpness, have a look at a 5x4, 6x6, 6x7, 6x17 or 8x10 image from a traditional camera; any one of which could be enlarged to 81cm+++, or to the limit of the enlarger/printer — and 35mm really doesn't count when you are serious about being s h a r p. But when talking about pinhole cameras — and these cameras in all their simplicity and lack of refinement, have a beauty that is all their own, don't compare the results with those from modern cameras; the ancient scripture of pinhole photography doesn't need the negativity: it's been proven since Da Vinci's time.
Yesterday I was feeling kind of crappy, but still felt like a walk outdoors in the sunshine for some vitamin D and fresh air, etc. So I took my Harman Titan 5x4" a 22 minute walk from home to (coordinates) -37.831283,145.012088, to photograph the new artificial wetlands that Parks Victoria/Melbourne Water have established in this little strip of land.
I have to say, with the Titan, a PocketSpot meter, tripod and a couple of film holders - it made for one (comparatively) lightweight Large Format kit - which meant I could still get out an about and be self-satisfyingly creative, even though I was feeling horrid. That camera weighs nothing!!
