    The box is for panoramas and replaces some expensive gear that did not have up-shift. So at ground level, the box's shift clears the foreground and from the heights, it gets more foreground. Would be just right for your beautiful shot from the cliffs.

    Thanks Steve, the positive paper is hard to control at first but I'm getting the hang of it. I'm about halfway through my first pack of 25 in the 8x10 size and I'm just now managing to get the hang of exposing and developing this paper.
    Here's another with the positive paper:

    Paul, I've never heard of this positive paper! It's a paper you put directly on the Film holder and gives you a positive image, without using a negative or am I dreaming?

    That's exactly what it is! It is a paper that can be loaded into a film holder and can be shot in camera. After development you end up with a one of a kind positive print.

    Efke makes it, and I believe Adox makes some as well. You can purchase it at Freestyle.

    It is reported to have an ISO between 1 and 6 but I'm getting best results at ISO 1.5. It comes in sizes from 4x5 up to 16x20 but it is cut to the print sizes not the film holder sizes. If you want to use the paper in standard film holders you need to cut it down slightly. This isn't a problem as you can handle the paper under standard red safelight as the paper is orthochromatic and not sensitive to red light. At least that's what the box says.

    I just went ahead and whipped up some custom film holders for the paper so I don't have to cut the paper and can load in complete darkness just to be safe.

    The positive paper when processed in a standard paper developer (like dektol) is very contrasty even when souped in a very dilute mixture. After experimenting with a few developers (Dektol, D76, and Rodinal) I settled on Diafine. I've been able to yank continuous tones out of the paper with Diafine and the development process is very easy.

    Go check the "still life" thread, I just posted another photo in that thread with the positive paper. I quite like the paper although I am still learning, but it's certainly made 8x10 more affordable and has inspired me to build a 16x20.
