    Hi all, I am trying to get some more 12x10" film for my Howlett camera, but I used to get it from Retro photographics, and they/he seems to have disappeared...I tried Ilford, but special order is 6 months away at least...(and it is frighteningly expensive, nearly £190 for 25 sheets)..anyone got any good tips? It's easier to get xray film, so I may have to go that way, although I don't really want to.
    Thanks a lot.
    Dave

    Hi Dave

    It might be worthwhile joining up to the UK LF site and placing a wanted ad. It's free and should have good knowledge of what might be available from where. Good luck. http://www.lf-photo.org.uk/forum/index.php

    Hi David,

    I have just ordered some 10" x 12" monochrome film from Wephota, who are based in Germany.

    You can get 25 ISO here: http://www.lumiere-shop.de/index.php?page=product&info=1655 You can also get a 100 ISO version of the same film. The film originates from a company in the Balkans, and is cut to size in Germany.

    I also use Ag Photographic. Matthew is extremely helpful, and I buy most of my film from him. However, they do not stock ULF format films at present.

    Coincidentally, I am also in the UK.

    Hope this helps?

    Gary

    If you're really stuck I have one box left of 12x20 you could cut. It's HP5+
    Shipping might cost a few bucks though.
    The film cost is $365 plus the shipping.
