RE: pinhole negatives without electricity?
Thanks to Bob & Ryuji -- We did talk about Polaroid negs, which friend may have used at some point in the past. I'm embarrassed that I don't remember what the problem was for this project. Possibly the expense? Possibly you can't use them in a pinhole camera???
Whichever, that's the advantage of "asking the list": different/fresh points of view, plus amplification(s). Thanks...

DEAR JUDY, Ryuji is right. All they would need would be a tank with a sodium sulfite bath to hold the negs and dissolve off the slime. Ideally they should have one tank for the sulfite bath, a way to do a quick rinse to make sure the slime is off and then a water holding tank. They would then wash the negs when they got "home". Only 4X5 but instant darkroomless negs. A nice size for demonstrating cyano. CHEERS!

If you can work with normal contrast, try Polaroid Type 55 with any of the pinhole cameras that are made to take Polaroid backs. -- Ryuji Suzuki "I can't believe I'm here.
