Like I said in another thread, the only sign we'll get that something is about to be discontinued is a big surge in price, and then... nothing.
We will put 70mm film FP4+ and HP5+ on the ULF run this year :

Wow!!! As I slowly run out of Plus-X in the fridge and begin to migrate to FP4+... Ilford are awesome. Simon - do you know whether it will be perforated or non-perforated film?
Unperforated and probably in more 'affordable lengths' say 100'
Bless you Simon. You can count on me for 1000 ft of each.
(That's 70mm double-perforated Double-X for those keeping score. The auction doesn't use the term Double X but you can read it on the label.)
Apparently he'll ship to the U.S., but you have to contact him for the freight costs.
Has anyone ever developed this 2405 double x without using the special developer it seems to need?
I suppose if the film is used for aerial recon then the goal might be to develop it to very high contrast. But for ordinary pictorial uses, I use common developers on the aerial films- ID11/D76, xtol and wd2d+ and such, and they all work perfectly.
