    Re: In Praise of 5x7... Post'em !

    This are my first two 5x7 shots. I made them using the reduced back of a Kodak 2D Eastman 8x10. I was also shooting for the first time with a lens without shutter, just removing the lens cap and placing it back after exposure. I used the Russian lens LOMO 350/10 in one shot. I used the G-Claron 240/9 with a Copal shutter in the second shot. The only film I found available was the one called Shanghai, purchased on the bid site and came from Hong Kong. Anyone knows where to buy other types of 5x7 film? I am very excited about using 5x7, it is such a perfect ratio.

    Pepe, you can get some at B&H and Freestyle, tho the latter has Foma 320, Adox, Arista and Tri X Pro. One of these days I'll try Adox, since I figure its bit contrasty (?).

    Pepe,
    Keep your eyes open for the annual Ilford ULF sheet film pre-order sale. It usually opens in late April or early May. They usually have a variety of 5x7 films available. My favorite is always FP4+.

    In addition to the sources for black-and-white film already mentioned, Keith Canham has color 5x7 film available.

    5x7 Ilford FP4 & HP5 film is a normal stock item, order from a number of on line sellers. There are 5x7 films from Kodak and others.

    8x10 film can be cut down to 5x7 if needed.

    The once common European 13cm x 18cm is directly compatible with a 5x7 film back by using 13cm x 18cm film holders.. This allows using 13cm x 18cm sheet film in your 5x7 camera.


    There was a time when one can walk into a "pro" camera store and get sheet film out of their film fridge. They would always have a variety of 4x5 films in color or B&W, there would be a limited selection of 8x10 and no 5x7 sheet film. If they had 5x7 sheet film it would be B&W only. Situation is not that different today but the film choices are mostly smaller with color being even more difficult.

    To address this problem, stock up on 5x7 sheet film and re-stock as the film is used.

    Not just the 5x7 image ratio, might discover there are a LOT of advantages to 5x7 from lens choices, camera size (not in this case as the 5x7 reducing back on a 8x10), depth of focus-depth of field is easier than 8x10 and a lot more.
