    Just tried to log on to Ilford's website and it seems to have gone (was certainly there two days ago). Perhaps all will shortly be revealed....

    Now seems to be available again, unchanged as far as I can see.

    It might be a good idea to make a backup of the data sheets contained there. I did recently and printed the most important sheets... I have a freezer full of film, this will last a few years.

    According to this link, The Internet Archive at http://www.archive.org/ has stockpiled the content of the Ilford site from 19 Dec, 1996 through 09 March, 2004. I've also put www.ilford.com into their crawl suggestion form in an attempt to get a more recent archiving. You might check and see if the data sheets in question are there.

    I did a search for Ilford on www.archive.org and the search engine returned only 1 result, which was a patent. Where can we find these data sheets?

    Thanks

    Is this an example? I notice the link to a PDF also goes to archive.org.

    archive.org isn't a keyword search engine in the traditional sense. Put in a URL and it will list editions of that page/link that it has archived. I'm surprised a search for just "Ilford" turned up anything at all. I'm pretty sure there's an FAQ on that page somewhere.

    On air again!

    Steve,
    at this moment the Ilford website is on air again . So be not afraid to have no datasheets.
