Mike (Wino) very good to hear that the 8x10 is no longer a virgin. Once you get a handle on how things go, I would be interested in seeing the results.

I took the 4x5 out on Sunday and tested everything, I'm happy, especially with the 400, which is better than I hoped for.

Some feedback regarding your enquiries about local 8x10 Ilford film, may be illuminating to all of us here.
