Wet blanket is no good, but wet plate is fun!

That was really cool, Akira, thanks for posting it. 

 

I'd really like to see an analog photography club developing on Fotozones (see what I did there? 🤓). I also want to open up a medium format club that hopefully some dormant members will be happy to run with. There are quite a few MF shooters here.

Dallas, I'm glad you like it.  My big regret during the film days was that I didn't have a chance to try large format cameras.  The films have become scarce now, but there always seems to be chances to try the wet print or even the egg print?!

Ilford still make sheet  film up to 20" x 24" (51cm x 61cm for FP4 and HP5.  Not sure about offerings from the other film manufacurers.  They also have Ilford Ortho film in 8" x 10" and Delta 100 in 4" x 5".

Alternatives include using paper negatives - like Alan7140 has in recent times.

Hugh, thank you for the links!  Yes, I've read and been intrigued by Alan's recent posts.  One interesting thing is that the spectral sensitivity of B&W films goes into the UV range.  I still keep Apo-Nikkor 240/9.0 with the premise of using it for the UV experiments that I enjoyed with digital and film cameras until about 10 years ago.
