Ilford 1171170 reviews

Harman Direct Positive Fiber Based (FB) Paper (Glossy, 8 x 10", 25 Sheets) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for fun! 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful Paper 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it for pinhole, but availability issues? This paper is great for pinhole work. I use it in workshops. It has a little less exposure latitude than standard photo papers but my students are able to get it dialed in pretty quickly. There has been some availability issues that I hope are resolved soon. Especially with the 4x5 size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! The ASA is a bit low for my needs, but I just had to add expose times. Also used this for old 120 positives I had and they worked good. A bit expensive but the uniqueness is worth it.
