    I forget where, but I remember hearing that Ilford made black and white film for Fuji (e.g. Acros, Neopan 400), does anyone know if this is correct?

    Thanks,

    I believe I remember seeing an article in B&W magazine(UK) that had something to the effect that Ilford helped Fuji produce recently a BW film that is simular to HP5.I"d have to look but I'm fairly certain the article was from some time this summer.

    I could be wrong but I think I remember reading that Ilford was making Fuji's chromogenic film, not their other types of black and white film.

    I believe Ilford collaborated with Fuji on their Neopan 400CN chromagenic emulsion. I don't know if they actually make it though.

    Thanks for that information. I am currently considering what I might replace Delta 100 with if it became necessary to do so.
