Hi David,

You should be able to do POP fine with digital negatives. With POP
processes, I think the only step that people have trouble with is determining a
standard printing time—which perhaps seems the antithesis of POP, where you are
printing by inspection. However it is important to get a printing time so you
can determine what density your negatives require. The traditional method of
exposing until you get a standard steptablet to merge at least two steps
doesn't work very well, since the self masking prevents this merging of steps. But
you can still use a step tablet and by examining the darkest print steps
decide which gives you an acceptable "black".

Good luck,
Mark Nelson
