    CatLABS X FILM 80 MKII now available in 8X10

    Having continued the production of CatLABS X FILM 80 MKII now into its second round of coating/cutting, we have finally enough material to cut into 8X10 sheets and are happy to present this to the world!

    This 8X10 cutting was in fact in the works for earlier this year but was pushed back due the release of our small/medium format roll film CatLABS X FILM 320 Pro (https://www.35mmc.com/13/10/2022/cat...ique-emulsion/)

    CatLABS X FILM 80 MK II in 4X5 and 8X10 are the most affordable BW negative sheet films available in the US in their respective formats and are on the way to retailers across the country already. For now, it is available here https://www.catlabs.info/product/clxf80ii
    Ships next day.

    For those who have not heard about this film, here are some specs:
    • CatLABS X FILM 80 is a traditional, slow-speed, fine-grain, high silver content film, designed for a wide array of shooting conditions

    • Our CatLABS X FILM 80 MKII is an improved formulation of our classic film

    • Following in the footsteps of Kodak's famous 'Panatomic-X' (which was used in Polaroid's equally famous Type 55 film), CatLABS X FILM 80 brings back a classic touch with its unique look

    • An ideal “daylight” film, offering versatility and unique characteristics not found in any other currently made film on the market today

    • Characterized by its very fine grain, moderate contrast and deep tonal range

    • Exhibits a wide exposure latitude under various lighting conditions, and extreme flexibility in processing options

    • Rate it at 50 ISO when shooting indoors (under studio lighting) for extreme fine-grain, or push it as high as 800 when shooting in low light conditions

    • CatLABS X FILM 80 has an IE of 80 ISO

    • For convenience, expose as 100 or 80 ISO for similar results

    Does Catlabs have any resellers/distributors in Canada? Cross border shipping fees have been a nightmare lately.

    Where can we find spectral sensitivity and characteristic curve data for the MKII film, please?

    There are a few, though its not clear if they will carry this right away.
    We have special shipping rates to Canada and usually, those are flat, so no matter how many you order, the shipping price remains the same.

    Films now on the way to our good friends at Downtown camera in Toronto!
    Expect them there in a week or so.
    BTW - they will also carry the new X FILM 320 Pro in tiny 35mm and 120 formats

    So, I'm going to assume that all requests for technical data on this film are simply going to be ignored, yes?

    I will test and compare for myself as I have a few mystery films

    I ordered the new Catlab 4X5 and 8X10 5 hours ago, already shipped
