I'm sure I can buy some 5" x 4" FP4 easily enough but how would you go about developing it without a proper darkroom I wonder?
The interwebs are full of stuff on this, but SpeedGraphic are a good U.K. supplier - eg https://www.speedgraphic.co.uk/film_...r/22123_p.html

Thank you Mark.

I didn't know what to make of that device when I first saw it. I thought it was something from an 'adult' shop!

It'll be fun loading six sheets in total darkness I imagine.

Back in the day I used a changing bag to load Paterson film processing canisters, but maybe you’ve got a different balance of perversions...

I regularly use a changing bag to load films onto Paterson spirals. 35 mm is easy enough but 120 roll film is a lot more tricky. I don't think I would risk 220!

However, loading those 5x4" negs looks like it would be tricky even in the light but I am willing to give it a go.
