    Re: Anyone Use Shanghai GP3 Film in 4x5 and 8x10

    I have a box of 8x10, and a couple of boxes of 4x5. I've gone through a few sheets of both formats, and was pleased. Here is one I shot on 8x10 last Spring. EI 50. It was developed in Pyrocat-HD.

    I've used this film in 4x5 format for reversal and was happy with the results. Reciprocity failure correction table was kindly provided by Andrew and it works well reversal too. Though I've heard about QC issues, I didn't face any such issue. Now I have the film in 5x7 format and I hope my good luck with the film continues.

    Bought a box of ten 20 x 24 sheets last year and just got around to trying it last weekend. Shot 4 so far and seems OK....except for obvious manufacturing defect on one sheet. A clear dot in negative.

    Do you have a link to this reciprocity table? I have been using ADOX in 7x17" but their prices have gone up 40% (!) in the last year so I'm looking into alternatives. Not sure I want to put up with the complications of X-Ray so Shanghai and Ilford are the only other games in town

    I've used the film in 14x17. I shoot it at ISO 50 and develop in Pyrocat HD 2:2:100 for 14 minutes for carbon printing. The factor I use is 1.46 for reciprocity and it works well. Almost everything I shoot is over a minute. Here is a carbon print from this film.

    Proof that it's all about light, and an eye for good composition. Beautiful, Jim.

    Merg, thank you. The light draws me in and the rest just falls into place. It is all about one's feeling. But I don't need to tell you that.

    There's a line from the song "Against the night" by Jason Webley,

    "This light won't die, between the shadows of the leaves it dances, as the wind blows by."

    Light is the thing the draws many of us I think. I can be distracted walking to my parking deck at work by the right light on the buildings and trees.
