    Kerry, the other sizes they've added are those that are still in regular production as documented in the master product list posted on the Ilford website, just not normally imported to the US.

    I had asked Ilford USA whether they could supply any 2.25x3.25 HP5 Plus, and the answer was that it's not regularly imported into the US, but they would look into the possibility of bringing in some as part of the special offer. I'm sure they got other requests as well. And then they actually delivered by expanding the offer in this way. I'm really pleased - looks like they're trying hard to be responsive. Perhaps they can add 4x10 next time.

    Well like Curt, I hope that everyone supports FreeStyle Photographic (I guess I have to) And Juba yes Ilford needs all the help we/all can give them. And after meeting John from J and C I don't think he wanted to take his handshake back.

    But for me at this time it is a Kodak moment FreeStyle is putting together and 11x14 Tri-X order a 120 boxes have been sold, out of the 140 plus boxes needed for the order. I know one more film to think of. If you want 11x14 Tri-X contact John Richardson at FreeStyle he will give you all the information. (ok how much 89.99 a box of 10 sheets) Bif film is going to cost.

    Stefano you can find Italian Ilford partners on Ilfords web site:

    http://www.ilford.com/html/us_english/directory/exportlist.asp


    If not them, www.fotoimpex.de, company from Berlin, Germany, sells Ilford, and my Ilford suplier is www.fomei.com from Czech Republic.

    Stefano,

    As far as I'm aware the Ilford ULF film is only destined for North America. None of this run is being made available to Europe. Simon at Ilford has hinted that there maybe another run at sometime for Europe, perhaps he will clarify if this is to happen & when.

    Dear European Large Formatters

    I will offer the ULF products to all ILFORD distributors once the US orders are in, they will have to be sure that they will get orders in before they order. I know the French distributor is interested but I will keep you all informed

    Simon.
