    Wondering if anyone knows of a US dealer for Ilford 9x12 cm film. I'm pretty sure there aren't any but I may have missed something.

    For Ilford 9x12, the ULF run is the only US option. If you're desperate, you can order it from macodirect in Germany, but I don't recommend them--they messed up my order and it took a lot of time and effort to sort it out.

    Maybe buy from our sponsor Fotoimpex in Berlin (Germany) It's not a special ULF film though as it's a commeon mainland European size.

    It's worth noting that they have the new German made/coated Adox 100 in 9x12 as well as Fomapan.

    IIRC, in another thread a while back Simon Galley said that your dealer can ask Wynit to bring in anything that's a stock item at the factory, which ought to be the case for 9x12cm. Might be worth a phone call or two.

    The annual ULF run is just the ortho film not FP4 or HP5. In the past I've used the discontinued Efke 100 from Freestyle. I just ordered some Foma 100 from them to try out. If for some reason I don't like the Foma an overseas order is probably the way to go.

    Only problem is except for Ortho Plus Ilfords 9x12 films are readily available. US dealers can order at any time it's a stock item.

    From the OP's point of view it might be quicker to order from a European dealer who stocks it rather tha have his supplier request some from the US distributor who will add it to the next UK/US delivery.

    For 9x12, the ULF run is only Ortho as Chuck mentioned.

    I wonder if B&H would special order some FP4?

    I just got a couple boxes (50 shts each) of Fomapan 100 in 9 x 12 from Fomafoto (an APUG partner BTW) in Norway. Price was great even with shipping and the service is outstanding. I had it in my hands within 9 days. I'm on the East Coast.

    Fotoimpex seems to have a good selection. I'm very curious about the Adox films and how they compare to Foma. Unfortunately, their web site is primitive and lacks even basic ordering information in english. I suppose it's best to just email them.

    I have been shooting it at asa 50 and developing in Caffenol lately. I checked out the offerings at Fotoimpex, I might have to give some of that Adox a try sometime. This is with my Avus with the front element of the skopar removed. Sorry about the dusty crappy scan.

    Dear North American Apuggers,

    Do you want me to make available for the 2013 ULF run the 9cm x 12cm items in DELTA 100 Professional / FP4+ / and HP5+...

    If you do, I can sort it out this week.

    Regards

    I'd like to be able to buy the 9x12cm from the US dealers during the ULF run. Can't say I'm a big user but I'd go for 2 boxes of FP4.

    Apart from Ortho Plus 9x12 isn't part of theannual ULF run, it's a normal stock item, your dealer can get it at any time.

    What I'd really love to see Simon is the IR film in 9 X 12.
