HP5 Plus in banquet sizes

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

This is from the B&W list. Thought I'd cross-post it here as it's probably of more interest to LF shooters. Also, after Kodak seeming to shrug off LF B&W users it's very nice to see that Ilford is (and has been, for some time) stepping up to the plate! Thanks, Wendy!

Cheers, Mark Parsons

All this stuff, in all these oddball sizes, and they can't/won't make it in good old 3 1/4x4 1/4.

True, Bill, but you could cut 48 of them from one sheet of 20x24!


-- Simon (simonfairfax@aol.com), February 22, 2001.

Oops, bad math (I was thinking 20x30). Guess you could only get 30 of them from a 20x24. So much for that.

I'd have to use a glass cutter. They are talking about glass plates, right? Nobody in his right mind would use a piece of film that big without a vacuum holder. I can see it now: "Camera Made by Wisner, a division of Electrolux." Long, long damn extension cords for landscape work.
