    A 16.4°F rise most definitely distorts a 4x5 negative in the LPL glassless carrier. Concomitant decrease in relative humidity of the emulsion makes this pronounced.

    Neither this particular retailer nor Eastman Kodak nor Kodak Alaris need justify the retail price of any film. 8x10 320TXP sells for what the market is willing to pay for it. Period.
