    Lightbulb Images shot with Orthochromatic / Ortho Film / Litho

    Post your Orthochromatic Images here

    This film was used by newspapers until the 70's it was a low cost film
    Today it use in the graphic industries using a high contras developer.
    Back in the 70's I us D76 for the continuous-tone developer The ASA was 15 or 25

    Today with cost of film going up and up now I am looking at using a low cost film again.
    Cost of pan film for box of 50 4x5 is $54.99 and ortho $10.71

    Iīm using Ilford ortho plus with very pleasing results (grey scale). For Tungsten ISO 40° for natural light ISO 64° to 80°. With ID11 you can get the so called pictorial contrast G64. But it isnīt really cheaper than pan-film.

    You can get this film at Freestyle, although it is no longer being manufactured:

    I've been playing around with it, seems like it will be good for cyanotypes at least.

    If x-ray film can be considered Ortho -- here are three. I can handle the film under a redsafe light.

    I use to use Kodak Copy Film -- I believe that is ortho, also, but I might be wrong.

    My boys -- 8x10, X-ray film developed at the hospital. Scanned Platinum prints.

    Re: Images shot with Orthochromatic / Ortho Film / Litho

    Hello,

    struggling sometimes and enyoing mostly with my LF-hobby here in germany,
    this is my first posting here.
    Usually i use 4x5" / 9x12 cm, and from time to time 5x7".

    My english is bad,i am sorry; my scanning is ugly, i feel shame -and this pic is dusty.
    I can t reach your very high quality, but i love orthochromatic film ( Ortho 25).
    This pic was made on 9x12 cm, using RF, 6x9 cm. Is this small format allowed ?

    This Ortho 25 ( different names here, this were Rollei Ortho 25) has an Asa of 25.
    Nearly 50 Euro / 50 sheets 4x5" thistime.
    A crop from my print ( teststripe), 50x60cm, as a lithprint, because my scanner max. takes Din A 4...
