    5X7 Tmax 400

    Mr. Canham is putting together another order. Kodak, amazingly, has lowered the price for 50 sheet boxes so with shipping it will be $255. It was $360 last time around. Contact Keith if you are interested.

    Re: 5X7 Tmax 400

    WHERE IS THE Tmax 100 in 5x7

    I have one box in my freezer and I am too scared to use it - because it would REALLY PISS ME OFF if I end up liking it so much better than FP4 (and I will) and there is no more to use

    so there it sits....so Great Yellow Father in the East - please save me from my conundrum and make more Tmax100 in 5x7

    This is not a severe problem, don't get scared. You can always cut a 8x10 sheet in two 5x7 sheets and also you'll obtain a remaining 1x10 sheet that can be useful for calibraton tests or to make drop tests to know how developer is working.

    I've 8x10 and a 5x7 gear and I made some custom tooling to cut it with necessary precission for films not available in the 5x7 size, I do it just when loading it to holders. The 5x7 box is the convenient way to go, of course, but cutting it from 8x10 it is also well straight when necessary, some precission required.

    With TMY at $255/box one get the same cost per 5x7 sheet as it was cut from 8x10. When price was $360/box the 5x7 Sheet was 40% more expensive than if it was cut from 8x10, enough for me to take the cutter

    Well, if you don't like the price then don't sign on. He needs 70 people.

    IMHO $255 is a fair price, given that 5x7 product is made in much lower production runs, and TMY sheets are expensive, as there is no ilford competition for the ISO 400 tabular grain in sheets.

    $360 it was discouraging (to me at least), but $255 looks fair.

    Ah. Thanks for the pointer. I never would have thought of that strategy.

    I endorse that and would expand the sentiment to "if you want to disparage the film compared to alternative emulsions, please do so in a separate thread."

    Kevin, if you're keeping in touch with Keith on progress toward the minimum quantity, please update this thread periodically to share that status. Thanks in advance.

    You are right, perhaps this should be moved to another thread, just the thing has gone a bit too off topic, anyway my intention was not at all to disparage the film by comparing it, just wanting to learn differences. What's for me the off topic posts can be moved away if disturbing.

    $5 per sheet is a good deal!
