    24cm X 76 meters of Agfa Aviphot 200 has arrived

    SONY DSC by Nokton48, on Flickr

    24cm x 76 meters Agfa Aviphot 200 Aerial Film arrived today! This is the same film we have been buying in Germany and shooting in 70mm perforated. Looking forward to trying it as I have time. I have a lot of original 13x18cm Sinar Norma Film Holders. Looks good with 8x10 contact print paper black borders. The film is packed in a giant black plastic film can, wrapped with electrical tape to seal it. I cut off enough of the outer stock to examine it in the light. I believe this can be processed a sheet at a time in a single flat bottomed tray. I cut out a couple of 18x24cm sheets on the Rototrim, no probs fitting in my old 18x24 Norma Holders. This is good for a go. No Money 8x10; the film is the biggest expense when doing conventional 8x10. Like shooting a whole roll of 36 in one pop. Nothing like it. The bigger the viewing screen, the more beautiful and easier it is to view and compose. Like looking at a giant television set. This stuff shows tremendous promise. BTW I just mixed up a gallon of Diafine A & B. I may start processing these giganto sheets in Diafine. Diafine lasts forever, until it dries up

    Hey, that's only about 250 exposures, so don't waste it!

    Maybe you can shoot a (very) short LF movie.

    Wait a minute... 7600 centimeters divided by 18cm is 422 sheets. So I can waste a few. I already have used up two sheets, test cutting the emulsion and checking to see how it will fit in the holders. The answer is....... Fits well, no curl at all. But it will kink and get crescent moons, like when you try to remove it from the holders. Care will need to be taken. I've gotten the crescent moons before with 70mm stock so I am aware need to be careful handling it

    Hmmm Another rabbit hole! I will certainly consider it. In my Kindermann 15 meter 70mm tank I have processed the 70mm version of this film in ROLLEI SUPERGRAIN dev. Good results but spendy. Other friends have used RODINAL with good results, I have some of that, too. I have a friend who has gotten amazing results with DIAFINE. I just mixed up a gallon of A and B Diafine. Which lasts forever.

    24cmx74m Agfa Aviphot. This is the plastic can inside the outer box. I cut off some leader which had some tape residue on it. So these were run through my Rototrim Cutter, a piece of Kodak MINR cutdown to 18x24 used for sizing the sheet, with blue masking tape. Pretty easy to do this in the dark, I have eight of these olde wooden Norma Holders I like them. I could also make 8x10 sheets with two cuts, and it'll make scrap. But it's 8x10! Personally I like 18x24 negs centered on a 8x10 fibre paper. Makes a beautiful border and I show the whole negative.

    Hey Y'All....

    He has more of this for sale. Cheapest way to shoot 18x24cm or 8x10" Infared.

    Need to get busy with mine. I love it in 70mm. Been using Rollei Supergrain dev, Freestyle stocks it.

    BTW It works out to 57 cents a sheet in 18x24.

    the film is very thin polyester right? is it the same thickness as the ilford infrared and rpx 25 emulsions? any issues with film flatness?
