    Thanks Neil for doing this again this year. One bit of feedback, The 9cm x 50ft roll on sheet film stock prevents any use as a reload for out of date roll film formats. It is also too thick to be slit down easily. I'd buy several rolls if this was on roll film stock instead.

    Thanks for the feedback Greg, I'm not sure of the requirement for the original item. I seem to remember this being raised before though. Perhaps we have two separate requirements here. Roll and sheet film stock ?

    Thanks Neil, Not sure what you mean? Are you saying one can specify roll film stock when ordering it?

    Just so users of "miniature" cameras don't feel left out, I see the program includes 2.25 x 3.25 and 3.25 x 4.25 sheets of FP4 and HP5.

    Hi Greg, What I was meaning was that I was unsure as to the original requirement for this size and base type, presumably this was due to specific requirement(s) in previous years. I will feed this back to the people who organise the ULF campaign.

    I got the HP5+ in 127 format last year so I was hoping for something else in that format this year like maybe Delta 100. I'm still working through my HP5+ so I won't need more of it for a while.

    It's being made whenever stock drops below a certain level & relative to its keeping properties and projected demand, that might be every 2 years. I think Galerie might be on an annual or 18 month schedule & I'm fine with that if that's what it takes to ensure the future of those specialist products.
