* I'm an analogue enthusiast, trying not to fall into the digital abyss.
* My favorite cameras: Mamiya C330f, Nikon S2, Hasselblad SWC, Leica SL, Leica M7, Russian FKD 18x24, Bronica SQ-B and RF645, Rolleiflex T, Nikon F4s, Olympus Pen FT, Agfa Clack and my pinhole cameras.
I also would buy a 100 ft roll of 46mm, any style.
Very interested to learn what the minimum would be.

You have mentioned that Ilford is not interested in producing 70mm perforated film. Martin Reed at Silverprint wrote about this possibility four years ago. I talked to Martin recently. He said that that time he could not find enough photographers to order a small batch of just 60(!) 30m rolls.
I was about to buy 10 150’ rolls of out-of-dated Kodak Double X (2405) from “that Canadian guy” and some Fujichrome Duplicating from Siverprint or Process Supplies in London (it gives surprisingly natural beautiful colour when C-41 processed), when noticed this thread.
Simon, could you please explain what the “excessive waste” is, and why it is not viable to coat 70mm perforated. What is the bare minimum Ilford would be interested to produce?
Also regarding 35mm. As I could not afford to shoot on photographic film at current prices, I bought recently two 400’ rolls of Kodak Double X (5222) movie film for £84 (+VAT) each. 400’ is equivalent of around 73 cartridges (36 exp.).
Simon, are you able to sell 35mm film in cans of 400’ or 1000’?
If there is a possibility for 70mm perforated production I would certainly place an order. I have a ex-aerial panoramic camera that can consume 1-4'/sec of film. That adds up rather quickly! Depending, of course, on the price I would likely order a number (~5) 150' to 250' rolls.
I'm another who is buying 2405 from That Canadian Guy and I'd be very interested in perforated FP4 (assuming you're not cutting Pan-F ). I have an RB 70mm back and I'm pretty sure that it depends on the perforations to run the frame counter therefore unperforated is probably not an option for me. I'm not a huge-volume shooter though, so it'd be probably just 2 cans for me at that price.
I believe that there are more opportunities to shoot on perforated 70mm film vs unperforated. Hasselblad, Bronica, Mamiya, Pentax, Linhof... They all made holders for perforated film. Hasselblad have produced so many of them that the price has become ridiculous (I bought recently two holders with cartridges for 25 and 29 pounds in mint condition). For some reason majority of photographers do not look at what is around and follow the main stream. But I am pretty sure that if Ilford made a small batch of perforated 70mm FP-4 (as they did it in the past), they would have sold it easily.
Count me in on fresh 70mm perfed or unperfed. I can either shoot it in my Graflex backs or with my Mamiya RB.
