    Hi, Just wondering if anyone has found a source for small quantities of this film and corresponding P5 chemistry? I'm interested to give it a try.

    I asked the same awhile back, and the answer seems to be "not really" as far as the film goes.

    You asked ilford or http://www.microcolour.com/ (only distributor I've found online) and minimum order is prohibitively expensive?

    I also would like to try that film.

    regards

    I contacted Microcolor some time back when I was interested in this, and they basically said that only very large orders would be doable. They gave no hint as to what was meant by this.


    Contacting Ilford sounds like a good plan. Perhaps Simon Galley can give us some insight on this?

    This is an Imaging not Harman material.
    (By the way, Harman stated that they are not engaged in colour materials at all.)

    I'm not sure what you mean there, AgX. Ilford still lists it on their site.
