Can this be developed using cafenol?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. I've used the standard Caffenol recipe for 5-10minutes at room temperature. More experimentation is warranted, but it certainly works.

I heard that when this came out it did not fit into 4 x 5 film holders and had to be trimmed. Has this been corrected and it does fit or does it still need to be trimed?
Asked by: Jim
Some people don't have issues and some do. It's probably a combination of different holders and a little bit of user error, hope nobody gets insulted. It seems that with some extra force the sheets should slide in. The best thing is to waste a sheet to see if the width, length or thickness is the culprit and adjust accordingly.

question

I am unfamiliar with the term emulsion IN (under Surface Finish). Can someone describe what that means, please?
Asked by: Darren A.
Emulsion IN would refer to 24 x 66' and 50 x 50' rolls of this paper, which has the emulsion side of the paper rolled inward. Both rolled and sheet options come in a glossy finish.
