    Yup, you made me look. But first, I looked at a calendar to see if it was still April first.

    By the way, I heard from a friend of a friend (who read it on the internet) that HP6 and FP5 will be offered in 35mm cassettes of 22 and 34 exposure. And the cassettes will glow-in-the-dark for easier handling in the darkroom. Won't that be cool!

    I can't wait for Kodak Four-X, Doubleplus-X, T-Ultra, and Fuji ExtraMegaSuperOvertheTopRichSaturatedSmoothSexySilkyCool.

    This topic got my hopes up and then dashed them. I demand them returned.

    Any announcements to do with analog photography always gets my hopes up, out of curiosity for the most part. Beats reading a 3 page preview of the new Canon 400D in a photography magazine. Time to subscribe to Emulsion, I think.

    Don't bet on it - I have a couple of boxes of HP3 in 5x4, still in working condition!
    I've also got quite a bit of HP4, and that still works too.
    Both a little foggy, but still usable.

    I was given them when a studio closed a while back, and thought I'd give them a whirl. I was amazed.

    Ahh Simon Now that you are here. How is the film availability in 13X18 cm?
    Cheers. I can't quite figure out the product sheets on the Ilford website.
    As for the webstores I have visited its kind of "now its here, now its not"?
    Somehow the lists I have seen are more or less outdated.
    Cheers
    Søren

    >> Fleath: This topic got my hopes up and then dashed them. I demand them returned.

    And to think my last dashed hopes were when I found a box of 8x10 SuperXX at work this week, and then discovered it had been cut into odd-ball sizes to contact print acrylamide gels.

    Oh well, it was only SuperXX. Had it been HP5 I might have been actually upset.
