    13x18 cm sheet color film negative in Europe

    Hi,

    Does anyone know where I can buy 13x18cm color negative sheet film in Europe.
    It seems very difficult to find these days.

    Charles.

    Here's some on stock at ars-imago. Btw, I have no connection to them, it just a place where I buy my film and darkroom stuff and so far service is excellent:

    Rollei R3 13x18

    Ilford FP4

    Maco Genius Litho

    Here's a link to their complete sheet film offering. You could easily get Rollei stuff from them as they are the distributors for Switzerland.

    Hope this helps.

    Edwin,
    I was talking about COLOR negs, it seems that all these sites are for BW.
    Thanks anyway.

    I'm afraid that Ole is right, at least as far as references actually listed by major German or British vendors. the French shop Prophot, ususally well-stocked has no 13x18 color neg as well. The same question was raised on the French LF forum and no answer was found.
    So to me the situation is simple, it the reference no longer exists at Fuji or Kodak, forget it or go for the trichromatic process from 3 B&W negs.
    Or like Tuan does, cut a 8x10" in half and forget about looking for original 13x18 color neg.
    If the reference actually exists, I see no other means that contacting one vendor and ask about minimum order.

    About the trichormatic or 3-color process, there is a blog by Henri Gaud who is federating the efforts in France on the subject, and the results are so good that we can sleep quietly, even if color film in LF would dissappear, the trichromatic process would allow us to continue.
    In your favourite searc engin look for : henri gaud trichromie and you'll be all set (I do not have the address handy)

    Cool Re: 13x18 cm sheet color film negative in Europe

    Thanks Emmanuel, I will look into the trichromatic process, (i dont know yet what it means).

    Regarding the reference of the 13x18 color neg, it exists in the Fujifilm web site, but says that "it may not exist in your country".
    There is probably a guy in Europe who decided one day of bad mood that we did not want it any more, you know the type of 'crâne d'oeuf' guy.
    I have a friend going to Japan this summer , he will look over there if the photo shops are carrying the 13x18 Fuji color negs.
    I am sure we could organize some kind of parrallel market if enough is ordered.

    Cheers.

    Charles.
