ULF is just a buzzword, but it's nice to be a self-proclaimed member of such an exclusive - but open - club.

Most consider 7x17" already ULF, but that's only valid for the longest side, a 7" high negative is not very impressive but if you combine that with almost 2.5 times its width...!!!

I do agree that anything larger than 8x10" could be considered ULF, only because of the practicability in the field.

Scooter, can I make you yealous when I say that I'm going to Fontainebleau end of december? Not for bouldering but for making 7x17" images.
OK, call it gross and decadent

Splendid description, David. I should stick that to my darkroom door.
