I've been able to get an asa of 10 to 12 with Ryuji's DS10 developer using
Kodak CGP lith film. see

To get this speed I need to flash the film - expose it to just below the
fog level.

See for the

CGP is available in a wide variety of sizes as well as rolls. I think its
possible to get rolls from something like 6 inches wide to 24 inches wide.

Could make some interesting pinhole panormic cameras using this film :)
