    Re: will I see 8x10 infrared film ever again

    I went to the Rollei film website and found a contact e-mail.
    I asked, "Hi, Is there any chance Rollei would consider a short run of 8x10 IR 400? thanks, Vincent"

    The response was,
    "Currently no chance, Vincent.
    We have no 175Ám base to coat the film on.
    Cheers,
    Stefan, MACO+++

    I contacted freestyle photo about rollei 8x10 and received this response:
    "Hello Vincent,
    We have approached them with this before and so far there is not enough
    quantity demand. There would have to be hundreds of boxes ordered and
    then the time and finances to work out any larger format qc issues that
    may arise. It looks as though 4x5 is the largest they will produce in
    the foreseeable future. Our next run is due at the end of October.

    Sorry for the bad news and thank you for the inquiry.
    Sincerely, ~Sherry

    Funny, I usually only use my iPhone to access forums, I find it easier to navigate than the website (which for me is totally disorganized, especially finding the new posts in threads..)

    Anyway question. I know IR reacts different to light in terms of holders, are there any to avoid? Like light leak issues because the holders are not IR light proof? I haven't had issue with my 120 camera but no experience with 4x5 and don't want to spend the crazy money and then have fogged film because of bad holders.

    I have fidelity elite and fidelity deluxe ones...

    There may have been issues with holders and kodak HIE because it was so very sensitive, but I've never had any leaks in any modern plastic 4x5 or 8x10 with efke or maco. never used any wooden holders though
