    flashing impossible 8x10 2.0


    I just got a box of the new impossible 8x10 2.0 film

    its nice but quite high contrast

    has anybody pre flashed it to reduce contrast ?

    its rather expensive for me to play with so any advise

    Interesting idea, not sure how practical unless you have several holders or a second camera to set up for flashing.
    If I try it, I'll post results. A sliding split back is a great accessory for testing this stuff, BTW.

    You can do in camera flashing. Metre the scene through a diffuser, such as white plexi. Place that reading on zone 2. Place diffuser over lens and make your pre flash exposure. Remove the diffuser, go ahead and take your actual photo. I pre flashed good old T55 many times in contrasty situations with great success.
