Washi W is the original Washi film, and comes to life in the larger formats! In fact it is the first large format film in high production that is backed with Japanese paper instead of the traditional plastic. This will give your photos a beautiful unique textured look - a Film Washi signature of visual interest that cannot be simulated by other means.

Finally used my Washi and yes it must be used with delicate hands but I love love this simple raw medium. Careful loading yes it is touchy but the images (i overdid a few or they caught light in change bag) are pure magic and just my way of seeing through photography. I want more and more and more!!1
Film arrived promptly.i had to trim about 2mm of long side for it to fit in dark slide.i rated it about 6 iso and used multigrade developer.. first shot the emulsion came off. The secret is keep temp of developer to about 65 degrees fans dilute 1:15 instead of 1:9.i added Gardner to fixer and the problem was solved.
First of all the film cannot fit in a standard 4x5 film holder.
Under a red light you need to cut about 1mm.
Maybe this kind of sheet film was intended for box pinhole camera, I don't know, but this is the first time I found a 4x5 film not able to fit in the 4x5 film holder.
The film is very delicate, and as said must be handled ONE sheet at time, ONLY in a tray with very gentle movements. Use your hands to lift the sheet from a tray to another, the paper could be very delicate. When dry, instead, the paper is quite strong.
At the moment I was not able to get any usable result, due to my errors in processing (I used the SP810 tray, but I did not so gentle agitation, so the sheet curled over itself).
I bought this film to try something new. Every time I developed it, the emulsion would dissolve. I triple checked i did all the steps right. And even contacted the manufacturer. I would not recommend this film.
