    If it's the Kentmere material, I think the availability in larger formats is actually new.

    I think he's saying that you can't get Kentmere sheet film, period. I'm anxious to find out the cost too.

    True enough. Wonder if it will be similarly priced to Arista EDU stuff. Frankly B&H prices for Ilford 4x5 is not bad and the savings vs Arista is not enough for me based on the quality.

    Agreed, I liked the Legacy and Arista Premium (fuji and kodak relabels) a lot, but the only experience I've ever had with Foma films has resulted in short striated scratches in the emulsion (it was Foma 200 Creative in 120), and swore I'd never use Foma film again. That said, I LOVE the Foma papers, especially the Fomatone MG.

    Foma had some particular QC issues with the 200. They still aren't Kodak or Ilford, but I've not had any QC problems with their film. 120 curls pretty badly but is certainly manageable.

    Exactly. A new high quality bargain-priced sheet film is a big deal if you shoot large format. I've found Fomapan (aka Arista EDU Ultra) sheet film to be fine for contact prints, but compared to Ilford products, there's a lot of inclusions in the emulsion.

    Ilford has made it very clear that they will no longer sell re-branded versions of any of their products, including Ilford and Kentmere products. They will, however manufacture to specification.

    So it isn't Kentmere, although it may have some similarities to other products, including Kentmere.

    How many manufacturers are there in the United Kingdom who make film and paper? Has there been any movements of photographic equipment machinery into the United Kingdom? If and I say if it is an existing manufacturer then do they have the capability for increasing production to supply an entirely new comprehensive line of photographic supplies? What defines "popular sheet film sizes"? What could be better than being able to buy at any time a ULF film? The only 11x14 that's available for immediate purchase is not entirely suitable for Carbon Transfer without extreme development measures. This announcement comes at a time when many are sizing up resources for the yearly Ilford Harmon run. What's the most expensive part of any business or endeavor, time.

    Manufactured in the United Kingdom under strict direction by Freestyle, we bring you a new black and white film in 100 and 400 ISO. Available in 35mm, 120 size and popular sheet film sizes, these new films are sure to satisfy the most discriminating of photographic artists while maintaining that low Freestyle value price point.

    Arista EDU Ultra is available in 4x5, 5x7, and 8x10--I wouldn't expect anything beyond this for sizes. I'd love to see 11x14 film, but I don't think the sales volume justifies it.
