I saw HP5+ in 122 format. That would be fun. But it would need backing paper I suppose, and some way to develop it..... I've probably got too many other things going on right now and wouldn't get it done. Ah well. No minimum order, through lots of distributors, this just pushes Ilford even higher in my estimation. It's not just talk they really go out of their way to cater to us, don't they? Impressed again.
Yep, all Ilford for me too from here on in.

I noticed some differences too. Maybe someone forgot to past & copy the "ROLL" versions of HP4+ from the Excell sheet into this document??

And can anyone tell me what sort this type of film is?
The footnote says: "MINI = 35mm Base". What does that mean?

I seem to recall the 10" rolls being for aerial-cameras, or was that 9 1/2" ?? I used to print the stuff a quarter of a century ago and I can't remember! It would be either aerial-camera or one of the banquet-camera formats.
The base refers to the thickness. 135 is slightly thicker than the usual rollfilm 120 thickness and might slightly affect loading (reduced capacity) for a roll-core or film-magazine.

Thank you Harman for offering the HP5+ in 46m for we 127 users !!
I will be ordering.
The list still says 82.55mm for 122, though. Please double-check the size before actually cutting the stuff. 92mm is closer (I just measured it again).
I also note the availability of backing paper, but it only seems to come in 120 size. Could this be made available in wider widths? 122 would be great, but wider even than that would be even better for me, because there are a few cameras in my basement that use even wider stock than that (123, 126, even 104, although the latter isn't working at the moment). I suppose I could slit it to 1-3/8" wide and tape it to the side of another piece to get 3-5/8, but I'd be afraid of light getting in through the crack if I don't line it up exactly right.
Yikes, I just saw your post, grabbed my 3A and was about to open it up to measure when I realized that it has a sheet of film in it already. But you're right 92 sounds about right, and 82.55 is the frame size not the film size.
I'd decided not to try this, but if I hear that the "roll" portion of FP4+ was omitted by accident, and they will make FP4+ in 122 format, I will probably change my mind and get some.
Will 46mm be offered in FP4+ as well?
Iso 400 is too fast for most 127 cameras.
I purchased a Kodak 3a the other day and some old 122 verichrome (for respooling) so I can buy some of the film from this special order. Large format in rolls? How cool is that?!
I'll also be getting a few boxes of FP4+ in 7x17. This will be my first time ordering from the ULF annual runs, and I can guarantee it won't be my last! Way to go Ilford! I'm located in South Korea and may be the only one ordering from your special runs. I preach the good news about ULF and large format, hope more will become interested. Long love film! Long live Ilford! May other companies learn from your model. Customer is always right. May you reap many benefits from it, Ilford.
