Can this be developed using cafenol?

Yes. I've used the standard Caffenol recipe for 5-10minutes at room temperature. More experimentation is warranted, but it certainly works.

Can you leave this paper after exposing in the fridge for a period of time before developing? Not near a darkroom
Asked by: Susan
You can hold off processing the HARMAN technology Direct Positive Fiber Based (FB) Paper (Glossy, 4 x 5", 25 Sheets). But do not do that for long times. It is best to process right away but you can wait a few days or so.

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.

Will this paper be damaged by airport security ...

Will this paper be damaged by airport security check X-ray scan machines or it's package protects the paper from this problem ?
Asked by: Luiz
Theoretically, it is possible that high strength X-ray machines can fog film or paper, which is typically the case with checked bagged rather than hand-carry/carry-on which typically use a weaker form of x-ray radiation.
