    Patricia, there are limited emulsion choices of the commoner ULF formats on a more or less continuous basis -- for instance, Classic Pan 200/400 and Efke PL 25/50/100 are cut in a wide variety of sizes and stocks in small quantities by J&C Photo, Retro Photo, and Fotoimpex. It's only if you have to have Ilford or Kodak (instead of or in addition to the Continental offerings) that you might wind up waiting a few months to get the film you want.
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    To answer the first part of your question Patricia, yes, as far as I know all the normal stock sizes such as 8x10 will be available as usual - this is new scheme is in addition to the normal stock runs. Note for example that 11x14 HP5+ is already a stock item and so is not included in this special system but that 11x14 FP4+ is not a stock item and has been included. No doubt, Simon can confirm if this is correct, but it seems logical to me.


    Cheers, Bob.

    Note From ILFORD photo / HARMAN technology Limited

    Dear All,

    Firstly, all the normal ( stock ) sheet sizes will remain :The ULF products are additional :

    Really you have the US ILFORD distributor and marketing folks to thanks for this, they are the ones who pushed us, as well as all the good feedback from APUG members.

    As to DELTA, I am sorry FP4+ and HP5+ only.

    I will keep you up to date with shipping dates etc:

    Regards

    Simon.

    Is there any pricing yet on the Illford offer?
    I still have not seen anything posted anywhere with prices.

    Simon, why the reluctance to cutting Delta (400) film in ULF as well as 8x10?

    Are there any technical difficulties or does Ilford just does not see a market for it? I am guessing but I think for Kodak Tmy 400 has been a great seller in 8x10. Just curious.....

    4x10???

    Fred / Simon,

    Will some of the not so ULF sizes become available as well?

    I am thinking of 4x10, Plate (6..5x8.5), 7x11 and 5x12?

    I like to keep my old cameras making images etc...

    Cheers!
    Steve

    Nevermind...

    My post was regarding a different thread, so I deleted it.

    Sorry!

    No technical reason, why DELTA 400 could not be finished 10 x 8 : we have no plans to make it ( stock turns I would Imagine ) I will speak to marketing for a fuller explanantion, we would not make DELTA in the larger ULF sizes, getting two products made is difficult enough !

    Simon.
