I just ordered 200 sheets of glossy Ilford grade 3, 5x7 photo paper. I have a guillotine paper cutter to cut into 3.5" x 2.5' pieces. These will fit into my 6.5x9 film holders and I will be exposing them in my Voightlander Avus as paper negatives.
I have seen examples of pics scanned and reversed paper negs, and this looks like a LOT of fun!
I get 4 negs from one sheet, so that makes 800 shots for $40. .05 cents a shot seems like a good deal!!
Anyone else tried making paper negs? I expect to develop in Caffenol-C, the same as I do my B/W film.

Be sure and post some results. What ISO are you going to use?

From what I have been reading, a good starting point is ISO 6. The paper is grade 3 RC Ilford, and the Ilford site mentions using about 4 times exposure for "normal" film, whatever that is. If I start at ISO 100 as "normal", half that is 50, half again is 25, half again is 12, and once more makes 6.
Using sunny 16 as a start, that would be a 1/5th second shutter at f 1:16 on an average scene in full summer sun.
I expect to use filters to handle contrast, apparently paper has less dynamic range, and is very much less sensitive to red spectrums. Someone posted a shot using polarizer and yellow and was getting good results. Just gonna have to experiment and see.
I won't be printing, just scan and reverse in GIMP.
Yep, I will post!
I may have to send the Avus in for bellows repair, the last roll I shot showed some ugly leaks.

Sorry. You are right. It is T Max. (I'm not very well learned in the ways of film).

Just processed a roll of Ultrafine 400 35mm, some shots from that roll:






Above were taken with SMC "A" 50mm f 1:1.7
I am waiting to win a bid for a SMC "M" 50mm 1.7 for my MX to complete that back to original.
I will also be getting another of these lenses, a Sears 135mm 2.8 portrait lens, which I used for these shots below.
