  • For 4 x 5" Film Holders
  • High Contrast & Density, Steep Gradation
  • Wide Exposure and Development Latitude
Ortho Litho 3.0 from Arista is a line and halftone camera film designed for pre-press applications. As a high-contrast film, it is characterized by a very steep gradation and gradation tone, along with a wide density range with high Dmax and low Dmin values for enhanced UV transmission. For halftone, high-contrast applications, rapid access processing in ACD chemistry, such as Majestic 650, is recommended; for continuous tone use, diluted B&W paper developers are recommended for lower contrast results.

Arista Ortho Litho 3.0 Overview

Ortho Litho 3.0 from Arista is a line and halftone camera film designed for pre-press applications. As a high-contrast film, it is characterized by a very steep gradation and gradation tone, along with a wide density range with high Dmax and low Dmin values for enhanced UV transmission. For halftone, high-contrast applications, rapid access processing in ACD chemistry, such as Majestic 650, is recommended; for continuous tone use, diluted B&W paper developers are recommended for lower contrast results.

For easy handling of the film, the emulsion incorporates a dedicated layer to prevent Newton rings, as well as separate anti-static and anti-stress layers to protect against dust, scratches, and other damage. Additionally, it can be handled and processed under a red safe light.

This item is one box of 50 sheets of 3.9 x 4.9" film; this film is cut slightly smaller than actual 4 x 5" in order to be used in conventional 4 x 5" film holders.

Arista Ortho Litho 3.0 Reviews

works great, requires proper development

This is a great deal for anyone wanting to try out large format without going broke. I shot this film at ISO 3. The final contrast depends on the developer and technique. If using D-76, dilute stock solution 1:4. With Dektol, dilute about 1:10 or 1:20. With Quintol, try 1:10. The film is not sensitive to safelight, so it can be developed by inspection. If you dilute Dektol too much, you will get film fogging. If too concentrated, the contrast will be too high. I have read that pre-flashing this film can make it behave almost like a normal film, just do a google search on this. The final grain size is very sensitive to developer type. D-76 seems to produce the finest grain, but I still need to test with 1:4 dilution as recommended in some literature. The attached negative was developed in Quintol 1:10 (paper developer). The emulsion is very sensitive to scratching, so be careful when handling it. The other ortho film option is Royal Regent hard dot film, about half the price of this.

Very practical!

I develop it in HC110 (since I have that already, anyways) and being able to do that under red light in the open while watching is just great! It also is great to load film cassettes under red light, a great practice for the real deal (panchromatic film). I always make sure to refill in time so that I have at least 50 sheets left.
