    There is a direct positive paper, also you can buy direct positive film: develop film as negative, but you get the positive image (Agfa Copex Slide Direct).
    Interesting on video is that he does not use gloves - hands directly in chemicals :eek:! How many of you are doing this without gloves or clamps :wink:?

    Darko gave you the answer. I've used direct positive materials in the past. Too many years ago though!

    When I worked in a commercial lab, I used gloves every day. For my own work, I never have, but then the volume is low.

    I like the square trays!

    I'd use a glove on at least one hand, and probably tongs.

    Is there a source somewhere for direct positive paper? In my looking last night that the Harman paper is no longer in production.

    Fantastico.. I have been building my film and plate camera for the past 18 months.. finally ready to use! It was meant to be a 20x20 plate camera but I built it for 20x24 film as well. I will soon show some images..!
    Have you made any projects with this camera?
