    Hello all.

    First the news...,
    Ilfosol 3 is now listed next to Ilfosol S on Ilford's web site,
    And
    ILFOSPEED RC DeLuxe (graded RC) is listed also.

    Question!

    I do not believe I have seen ILFOSPEED RC DeLuxe listed before with the other papers.
    Has it been brought back? (Simon?)
    Has been available all this time and I am clueless? (Most likely :confused:smile:

    In any case the news with Ilfosol3 is that in comparing dev times for Pan F+ @20c , the time listed for the 1+9 dilution (4:30min in Ilfosol S) has been moved to the 1+14 dilution slot in Ilfosol 3 and no time is listed in the 1+9 dilution slot. This seems to indicate a more concentrated formula for "3".

    Can't wait to get some and try it.

    Thanks and interesting. So two new benefits. Cheaper pro rata than Ilfosol S because of the increased dilution and better shelf life. Can't be bad

    Dear Dan,

    ILFOSPEED graded RC is and always has been fully available, you must just have missed it checking the PAL ( Product Availability List ) in the past:
