    Availability of direct positive paper?

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if direct positive paper (like the discontinued Harman paper) is available anywhere?

    Thanks.

    Harman didn't deliberately discontinue the Direct Positive paper, the emulsion came from Ilford Imaging in Switzerland which ceased trading. They have been working on it's re-introduction and Simon Galley of Ilford/Harman Technology has posted on APUG that they hoe to make an announcement fairly soon.

    There's very limited stocks left, it was the same emulsion as the Harman Direct Positive paper but coated in Switzerland.

    Yes, but different base. Harman is the paper base.
    I feel Imago is more like the films.

    I know I gave up on this product as soon as I heard of the production stoppage. I don't want to embrace a dead horse. Ever...

    I sure hope they bring it back.
