Not sure what to do with it, but I'm going to try it! At least a few rolls for my Rolleiflex or for the Ikonta...

In the video the photographer (Gaetan) doesn't process according to instructions, which say to soak the film in clear water first. This is why he has a problem with curl.

I am going to buy some 4x5, maybe while I am in Paris. I contacted http://www.nationphoto.com and they said they will have it in stock when I am there. Digital Truth is also taking orders, with free shipping for orders placed before 2/9. I like the romance of buying it in country of origin.

The distributors are listed here: http://lomig.fr/order/

Maybe Melbourne? Or write Lomig directly - seems a nice guy.

So it's a negative image on paper? Can that be enlarged, or does it have to be scanned and inverted?

Edit: NM, i see that it's a transparent paper and they recommend not scanning it.. wild.

The Video seems to show white paper but the site says transparent. One could make contact prints or inter negativs and then enlarge.

The recommendation is to scan as "transparency", not flat art/opaque.

As I understand it, the paper is pretty thin. Since the image is a negative, you can enlarge directly, by contact, or scan.

looks like $2 a sheet for 4x5. Not bad for a specialty film.

Sels d'Argent in Paris has it for 28€ tax included; looks like the best price I have yet to find at a bricks & mortar store in Paris - since I will be there.

It is pretty tricky film in development. Take also notice there has been a failure in pre- latest emulsion. The sensitive layer was too thick so when drying up it was a disaster. However you can exchange the film in France.

I read about the bad batches. I am going in Nay, so it won't be an issue.
