RE: Mike Ware's POP Pt./Pd. Pt

I think you recover some of the time you loose in exposure by skipping
the development stage with an AFO-POP process though...

Best regards,

One caveat I should have mentioned is printing speed. In my initial
tests I am finding a loss of about two stops with FAO and Ammonium
Tetrachloropalladate (II) compared to FO and sodium palladium chloride.
With the latter I can print a digital negative on Pictorico in about 100
units/seconds, while with the POP process the same negative needs about
400 units/seconds.

Hopefully I will find some way to change this scenario, because there
clearly seem to be some advantages with the use of FAO.
