    I wish you luck with your Galaxy paper, and hope it works out for you, but the fact remains that this KS was promoted inaccurately and misleadingly: Witness the number of people in both this thread and a similar one at APUG who were angry and disappointed when the facts were made clear - not by Galaxy, but by forum members.
    Ah, debates about ones use of words. But the truth is if I wanted to say folks were 'nitpicking' I would have used that word. And, it so happens I agree with you that the creators of this campaign should have included a paragraph carefully explaining the difference between Ilford's DP paper and the paper they envisioned. I of course, was quite thrilled when I confirmed with the creators that this paper could be used, with regular paper developers, as a negative. I had often wished that Ilford would make a special high speed, low contrast paper specifically designed to be used in camera as a negative. Only time will tell if this paper fills that need.

    Paper arrived today, with basic development instructions, all at 20C/68F. What wasn't included was any specific information on chemicals, what to use or where to buy them. So I guess the paper will sit in my cabinet for a while.

    It's a basic develop, bleach and tone process.... but with exactly what, not sure. And you need a dark red safe light (Wratten filter #29 or better). Amber not sufficient.

    what I can't find..anywhere.. is how one is to process this stuff

    what chemicals are needed, developing directions, etc


    which makes me nervous that it will entail some convoluted process with smelly chemicals that are highly temperature sensitive -

    making the whole process too much of a pain in the ass to attempt

    Got mine on Friday

    checked out the developing instructions

    whelp... it's gonna sit

    I wish there was an electric processor available..like the ones for RC or Stab paper - then I could set it all up in a gallery say..shoot /process/staple to wall....all in 10 minutes

    now that would rule..if it's gonna take this much trouble to develop...I might as well shoot film
