    Check out this auction.

    Either Phil is way behind the times or he knows something we don't...

    Which is it?

    Well, i will go with mis- leading the public.

    there is an up an coming conference on the west coast this spring, sponsored by Ilford. Our own Les will be one of the speakers.

    I find it strange that Ilford is out setting up conferences and workshops on one hand and going out of business on the other; however, i am no expect either.

    I have seen nothing of Ilford laying off half their workforce. This sounds like a seller trying to create a bit of panic buying.

    I have found this seller to be less than ethical. Do a search on collect888 here on apug or check his feedback.

    This guy is a crook, I have tried to buy film from him in the past, and it is always a different story with him, I eventually got a refund from him, but it was only after ebays investigation department got involved, he told me that the listing was correct, but somehow he ran out of the film and was waiting for another shipment and would send when it got in, well after 4 months still no film and still the same story...

    I would not recommend him to anyone...

    I kinda figured I'd hear about something like that here before I saw it on an ebay auction. Never hurts to check, though...

    There was a lot of debating with him, here on apug a while back. My guess is he wrote the ad a long time ago and just did a relisting.

    Hmmmm...maybe he's still lurking on APUG. I just clicked through on this listing and there's nothing in it about Ilford being in trouble...but the listing's been revised. Well, at least now it reads like an honest listing.

    But my opinion of this seller is based strictly on his behavior here on APUG, and he'll never get any of my money. I wish eBay offered a way to block a seller from appearing in search results. "Ignore" is such a useful feature on any web site.
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.

    It's an interesting sale listing. There are apparently ten lots available. The ad says that the sale is for 3 boxes of film with 25 sheets in each and 75 sheets total. Sooooo does that mean that the 10 lots is incorrect or are there actually 750 sheets available with 10 lots of three boxes available for a total of 30 boxes and not three?

    I'm confused

    Yeah...the auction has been "cleaned" up. Maybe it was because I emailed him.
