    Simon,

    Any status on the decision to produce Delta 25 yet? You mentioned the decision would be around now.

    Dear Braxus,

    I did indeed say we would be looking at 2007 projects around now, but we are very busy ( in all respects ) I would expect now a mid february review of new projects.

    Regards

    Excellent news all round, I'll be keeping up with this. It's kind of interesting that whenever Simon posts he seems to be followed by a string of various requests about products as well - who says film is dead :wink:

    Please consider producing this emulsion in 2x3 as well. I'd appreciate having it available for my Miniature Speed Graphic.

    Every body in black and white's world can't help waiting for this new film. Available in all roll format? even in 220?

    Uhhh.... I have lost count of the times Ilford has said they can't make 220 format as they don't have a finishing machine, so I prseume that is still a definite no. Really, we are very lucky if they introduce it in just one format (35mm in 36 exp cartidges) and promise more for the future given demand.

    How about making it in all formats? Wouldn't it be helpful if all users could have the same film? When was the last time that happened?

    Has there ever been a t-grain ISO 25 film before?

    reub2000, why 24exp rolls?

    The roll spends less time in the camera, so it can get souped sooner.

    If it's available in bulk rolls, you can roll any length that's convenient.

    As long as we're all getting everything we want (Thanks, Simon! :smile: how about packaging some 110 cassettes too? (SOME of us have 110 cameras that can be tweaked to handle ASA 25 film.) (The Minolta 110 zoom SLR for example, with aperture priority metering and fairly generous overexposure compensation)

    Oh, and as for 220, I think I have a possible solution. How about selling "naked" strips of 220 film, which people could tape to the backing ends salvaged from other rolls of 220? (Or, made from leftover 120 backing, with a scissors and tape?)

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that something like this was a fairly common means of selling 35mm film back in the '20s or '30s (and into the '70s or '80s in the USSR) -- spools of "naked" film, with a strip of paper taped over them, which were slipped into an empty cassette (and then the paper pulled out).

    For 220, it'd need to be a bit of a different arrangment, but I think there'd be a market for people who'd be willing to buy plain strips of 220-length film sans paper, sans spool, in a light-tight pouch ("darkroom-open only" packaging, which seems to work OK for sheet film).

    Could it hurt to do a trial run of a few thousand rolls of a single emulsion type to see how it would sell? Or if the beancounters are that nervous, could it hurt to do a little survey? Maybe enclose a slip with some packaged 120 film, asking for input (would you be interested? how many rolls/year? which emulsions? please reply to www.________.com/survey)
