Seems odd to me, using a super-high contrast film and then trying to get 5 or 6 stops of greyscale by using different devlopers. What&#39;s the advantage of using lith film? </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
I&#39;ve used a large variety of litho films and one characteristic that attracts attention is very fine grain. So if you can tame the contrast you have a super fine grain low speed film.
Mind you have to watch what kind of base they are on if you intend to enlarge anything. The cheaper line film made for shooting newspaper pages were kind of semi matte, made that way to be easier to retouch. Litho film designated as halftone film is the highest quality as well as the highest contrast film
