    Sheets would be great, especially for Carbon Transfer.

    The cost is good, that shows how I feel about this 25 ISO speed film.

    Thanks Simon, I've read about the re-jigging of the slitting machine and I know all about EoS.
    Although, B+H are selling FP4 and HP5 for about $1.25 in 100-packs and $1.32 in 25-packs. 5x that is only $6.50. Still (just) cheaper than Velvia and still (just) something I'd be willing to pay for D3200.
    But I can certainly understand that I'm very much in the minority here and there wouldn't be too many others who'd pay that (although, with the demise of FP3000B, there's nothing left at all for us high-speed shooters, maybe demand might be higher in a few years? [/wishfulthinking])
    One day when I win the lottery I'll fund an MOQ myself, but until then I'll just have to learn to push HP5...

    When I win the lottery I'm going to anonymously purchase a brand spanking new 220 machine for Simon...

    Oops. Did I just out myself?

    Dang! I hate it when that happens.

    When Kodak burns you could buy their 220 packer for fire sale price if they have not scrapped it first.

    But it is not that difficult to make up 220 in home dark room by recycling 120 backing paper, using scissors, double sided pressure sensitive tape and felt tipped pen.

    A 100 foot roll of film in black poly bag and cardboard box is about 19-20 off 220 films.

    But how much would a reseller want?

    And if they are going to use any other film for cameras "back in the day" that took slow film, it would be PanF+ wouldn't it?
    HP5+ has remarkable latitude, perhaps the widest of any film made today. I have times to shoot it at ISO 50 for extreme contrast reduction with Microdol-X/Perceptol. And I've shot the same film at 1600.

    Truly, let's hope it doesn't come to that. I plan on just buying a new one anyway.

    I believe the number quoted a while back by Harman for a new one was 300,000+ GBP. So presumably they can be one-off manufactured. My lottery winnings should easily cover that...

    Don't forget to get me a full set of Chamonix... 4x5, 5x7, 8x10, 11x14, and 20x24 please... I think the other sizes would probably be excessive those should do nicely, and of course lenses to compliment, and some film stock and a new constant temp freezer that will hold all the film you'll get me... Including custom 20x24 Velvia50....
