I saw this: Zebra film (http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280080333179&sspagename=ADME:L:RTQ:AU:1) and as I have a lot of learning ahead of me it looked like a reasonable deal. I'm assuming that it is Chinese as the seller is in Hong Kong but I haven't been able to discover anything else about it. If it is rated ISO 100 I guess it must be regular film, but thought I'd ask just in case it has some sort of serious drawback.

BTW, I'd be interested to hear of any other types of Chinese sheet film that comes in 8x10. I have seen ERA and Shanghai advertised in 4x5, but that is all.

I just came from Hong Kong last week and couldn't find this film in any of the shops I stopped at there. Sorry.

So far I have had very good results with arista.edu ultra 200 (fomapan 200). It is about a buck a sheet at freestyle. It is not Chinese though!

There is a guy selling ERA 8x10 film on ebay..

just received a box and:

triple boxed like Kodak
double bagged, very heavy outer bag and normal plastic inner bag
slip sheets between each film folder over the film and cover both sides
(that's not a cardboard liner I threw on the floor)
dev recommendations for D-76, HC-110, XTOL, Rodinal, PMK, Pyro- HD
dev recommendations seem a little hot
film is normal thickness, seems like a nice replacement for Plus-X, finally.
100 speed is a nice start point.

You asked.
