4x5 film packs

  1. I know The Big Yellow K stopped producing 4x5 pack film some time
    ago...has anyone taken up the slack or does anyone know of a source
    of good old frozen pack film? I've got a couple of pack backs that
    I'd love to put to use. One of them is brand new...never used!
  2. Well Kodak did discontinue most if not all of the packs but the alternative is fuji and some stores like B&H and others still have some available like the Tech Pan 25 speed film and etc.... you might want to take a look and pick up some while they are still available... I also heard a rumor which hasnt been proven that Kodak will be completely stop producing any and all films but its only a rumor good luck.... happy holidays
  3. I brought some TriX film packs on the auction site that the seller claimed had been frozen for 20 years. They seemed to work fine and were $8 each. However, I had forgoten (used them in high school) how thin the negatives were.

    They would not load reliabably in a Jobo reel and I had to tray develop them and scratched some.

    Also, I think you need to use a glass or negaflat carrier when you enlarge them or live with a lot of bow. I used a negaflat.
