    I am very happy, although for different reasons. I just this second got back from film shopping in Milan, Italy. I use one of the three/four professional wholesale-type stores here. When I asked for Delta 3200 120, I got a, "Have none and probably never will again." from the sales guy. Naturally I asked why and got, "They're going backrupt. They've sold the inkjet paper, they're stopping wet B&W papers altogether."

    In one fell swoop, this guy, supposedly the peak in terms of access to photography suppliers for northern Italy, managed to piece together three pieces of outdated or plain wrong information! I'm surprised he didn't add some hearsay about Agfa in there too. So when I offered that Ilford had gone, and come back from bankruptcy for one, it was Kodak and not Ilford that was stopping B&W papers for two, and the inkjet sale was part of the restructuring plan last autumn for three... he had no idea what going on anymore.

    Ilford Photo had better get some guys dealing with the misinformation out here!

    Our parting comments were when I asked if they had any new Velvia 100 to try he replied, "Sure, we've had that for over a year now." I just left.
    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

    I emailed Ilford enquiring whether PC paper was scheduled for re-introduction and was (eventually) told that it isn't. Perhaps if enough APUG-ers email them with the same question, they might take the hint?

    Personally, I think this was all planned by Ilford as just a way to get a fresh new start in the market and hopefully raise some sales. They got everyones attention by stopping production of their products, now they bring back tons of new stuff within a snap.

    Im glad they are back and going to do this thought! I have just seen many companies do this to get a fresh new start with things.

    The old Ilford has passed on, it is no more, it has passed away, gone. Bereft of life, it has expired and gone to meet the great darkroom trash bin in the sky. It has kicked the bucket, shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible... It is an ex-company... (with apologies to Mr. M. Python of Fugglestone St Peter, Hampshire)...

    It was broken up and sold off in (mainly) two parts. What we are calling Ilford is in fact Harman Technology Ltd (named after Alfred Harman who originally founded Ilford in his basement) trading under the name of Ilford for it's B&W products.

    I just pray they don't replace their B&W with T-Grain films.
