This is a 25 sheet box of Direct Positive Fiber Based (FB) Paper from Harman. It is a fun paper that can be used for many purposes. For the pinhole enthusiast, this paper is the answer to achieving a finished, positive print without the need of a traditional negative or inter-negative. This paper can also be used in large format photography or even when cut into small sheets for LOMO-type cameras.

As a creative tool, Direct Positive Paper can be used in the creation of interesting photograms of everyday items. Just cut it up into whatever size you need and you're ready to make an exposure. Finally, you can also use this paper as a traditional printing paper using a negative.

Comments about Ilford Harman Direct Positive Fiber Based (FB) Paper (8 x 10", Glossy , 25 Sheets):

Shot on Deardorff 8x10 and on a Vageeswari 11x14. Very happy with results. Use conventional paper developer and fixer. I love the high contrast. Seems that Ilford is still trying to get the formula to produce this paper. Hope they start making it again soon.

        Comments about Ilford Harman Direct Positive Fiber Based (FB) Paper (8 x 10", Glossy , 25 Sheets):

        I used this with an 8x10 camera instead of using film. It was awesome - it was easier to load than film because it could be done with a safe light on, and it could be developed under safe light as well. The only downfall is that it isn't a negative - the image you get is the image you get - but it can still be scanned in and manipulated and printed, so all in all it's at least fun to play with.
