    I wasn't talking about pre-2017 reciprocity data, I meant the current data. Why would I refer to old data??

    I agree with Peter. All the manufacturer's data that I have used has been over the top compared to my own... with the exception of Acros. Very accurate data. But, if you cannot generate your own, then the manufacturer's will serve as a starting point. When I get my sweaty mitts on some Catlabs 80, and if I like what I see and continue to use it, then I will go through the PITA steps to make my own data

    Well, my two boxes arrived from Amplis and it says on the box, X Film 80 II... is that the newest version?

    If it has a “II” after the 80, then yes, it is.

    It does! Thanks. A quick word about the packaging. I've never seen such flimsy boxes for 4x5 film before. I hope the bag inside containing the film is light tight!

    I've read several statements about the flimsy, cheap packaging. To make this film cheap, you gotta cut corners!

    Andrew, when you've done a few sheets of this film, I have a specific question for you: can you tell me what the base + fog is for the film? I'm curious if its as clear as FP4 or Delta 100.

    Sure! What developer do you mainly use?

    Yes, I suppose it is... but you can literally see the inner bag by lifting up a corner the flap! There is no inner box.

    Thick or thin, cardboard can be recycled. It will all end up as pulp, and reused.
