After looking at some sources on the web, it seems we are down to 2 emulsions for ULF. Efke 100 and HP5+ 400. Freestyle had been carrying Efke 50 but no longer lists it except for some stuff on short date sale. Is the Efke 50 available overseas? Any other emulsions out there or are these the only two currently available?

If you check Adox (they make Efke 100), I'm pretty sure they offer CHS 25 and 50 in ULF as well.

Digital truth has fresh Efke 25 and 100. Also Glazers still may be selling ULF Tmax 400. And Ilford offers both FP4 and HP5 as part of thier annual run.

FP4+ is usually available during Ilford's special order periods.

Kodak sheet films are available in ULF sizes, if you can get the minimum order together.

I sent an email to Digital Truth about Efke and Jon quickly responded. He confirmed the currently ULF sizes will only be available in Efke 100 only. However, he also said it was not uncommon for Efke to discontinue a product only to revive it again a few months down the road. I guess Efke has done this a number of times, so it may only be a short term issue.

I usually use Ilford(most of them) and Adox(I find it easily) for my ULF camera, but I would like to ask,if some know the answer, Why Foma dosen't produce a ULF films?

I believe that there is only a 10 box minimum for Efke 25 in ULF sizes. I am interested in several boxes of 8x20 and possibly 11x14 if someone else can pass the word we can get some of this great film heading our way.

Just got two boxes of FP4+ in 8x20 so It should hold me off for a while.

Michael,

I too just did 2 boxes of 8x20 FP4+ but i could do some Efke 25 if the price is acceptable.

Cheers, Steve

I received some interest in Efke 25 in 8x20 and have asked some retail sellers to provide us with the price for this film as well as the timing and minimum quantity. When I get an answer to this stage one query I will make a follow up post. When we have some operating variables quantified I firmly expect that we can move on to other formats.

If you are interested in acquiring Efke 25 in 8x20 please drop me a PM and I will put you on the interest list. The more interest the better price we can secure.

Cheers!

Michael,

Thank you very much for taking this on. I appreciate your efforts in the ULF film availability.

I'd also be interested in 14x17.

Cheers, Steve

Michael,

Even if you don't do any other sizes at this time, please keep us informed. I would love to have the film in 12x20 at some point.

Thanks for the effort.

In a couple of days I will get this ball rolling on 8x20 and let everyone know the details so this same scenario could be replicated with any number of formats. All things considered a 10 +/- box minimum for ULF sheet film is very reasonable. I am hoping that we do even more than that so we get the manufacturers attention.

Onward!

I'm with Gary on this one as I would be interested in some 12x20 in the 100 speed if available..........................TW

TW,

The 100 speed is available now. Freestyle told me that Efke will continue to supply that as regular item. The 50 and 25 speeds are now special order for ULF sizes.

Hope it helps.
