    Hi guys and gals,

    Sorry if this was mentioned already (made it through page 10, had to stop), but can someone tell me how the film is packaged? I mean, if I order 5x12, does it come in a 5x12-ish size box, or do they put two 25-sheet packs together in an 11x14 box, or... what?

    This is my first year taking part in the Ilford/Harman film fest. This is so friggin' wonderful...

    TIA!

    I can only speak to Whole Plate, which comes in properly sized boxes. I would guess that the other sizes do too.

    Boxes :

    One of the big issues in our ULF run is that the boxes are only ordered once the film orders are in as our box maker ( bless his heart ) also compromises his minimum order quantities and makes them to order for us, they are actually made by hand for the ULF run, even so they have to be full photo quality. Some are the exact size, but since some sizes are very similar we pack out some to try and cut down the number of boxes so you may not get the exact size box, the actual size of the contents is clearly marked on the wrap around info label.

    Thank you, Simon, and thank you, Roger.

    That is so cool, that the boxes are the same-ish size as the film. Can you imagine a stack of 7x17 film boxes??? The thought sends shivers up my spine.

    Four weeks to save up my pennies. So little time, so much film to order...

    This will be my first time ordering from the special run too. I did however get a couple of last years left over 7x17 boxes of HP5+ film a few months ago from MPEX and I can tell you it's the same quality boxes as their regular line. If these are hand made, it sounds like we're getting a really good deal on these films. Make the best of it while its still here!

    I compared prices on several films with several dealers on their sites/price lists. There are some strange variations in prices out there. Some even unbelievable strange. But it's their on their websites.

    I recalculated all prices into EURO for easy comparing: EURO 1.00 = USD 1.30 and EURO 1.00 = GBP 0.85. All prices excluding taxes and excluding shipping costs.

    Thanks for this. I live in a country that doesn't do this ULF special order so I'd like to order from the place that has bottom line prices. This comfirms MPEX has a pretty darn good deal compared with others. In my experience, their shipping fees are reasonable too.
