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.
Hi Everyone :
Firstly on the 122 format we had made an error the film will be cut to 91.75mm ( the price will not change ).
Nothing has been left off the list. Whilst we appreciate some people would like FP4+ in the 127 and 122 we need to see how many we get just offering one film ( HP5+ ) if we do OK, then next year we will make it available in FP4+ as well.
120 Wrapper ( Backing paper ) is printed and finished ONLY to 120 size Sorry, it cannot be cut wider economically.

You said "the price hasn't changed" but I just called one of the distributors on the list "freestyle photographic supplies" and they said you haven't given them prices yet, is that correct?

Or, I should buy fresh HP-5 in 120 rolls as it would be almost 3 times cheaper! In 2009 Martin Reed mentioned completely different range of prices...
I would expect that the price is set to cover costs, so really can't be fairly compared to outdated stock, or items that are made by automated machinery.
I still live just beyond the fringe in Stittsville
That price for only 50 feet? Does each roll come with its own vampire attached?
Wow, it may end up difficult to meet the minimum of 20 rolls.
I am in a similar situation - I have a 70mm back and was going to order a roll to support the ULF run, but at this price (220GBP=$340 for 50', which is about 18 rolls of 120; maybe it's slightly cheaper at other vendors?) there is no way I can justify it. I don't expect Ilford to sell it to me for less than it costs to make, but likewise I can't pay over 4x the price of 120.

I am sorry for the second time quoting the same:
Martin Reed at Silverprint had mentioned 2009 prices for 100' rolls. Was the technology and cost of silver so much cheaper that particular year?

The difference in price in 1992 and 2013 you can judge yourself...
