    It's Official!! Ilford to continue making ULF film!

    ULTRA LARGE FORMAT FILM AUTHORIZED ILFORD DEALER

    I'm thrilled to be able to announce that Ilford will continue to make
    available most film sizes from 5x12" to 20x24" *if* there
    are enough sales.

    Here's how the program works. Ilford will make the odd and larger sizes once or twice a
    year with the first run being delivered around tax time. Place your
    order with one of the participating dealers (The
    View Camera Store is one, of course. Ilford will have a press release
    with the others.) in this special program between now and January 25, 2006. There is
    no minimum order, but you do need make payment with the order and the
    order can not be cancelled unless Ilford does not get enough orders to
    make that size. Ilford USA will collect the orders from the dealers and
    submit them to Ilford UK.

    If there are enough boxes ordered (or close to it) Ilford will make a
    special run in that size and deliver the film to us about April 15th. Of
    course, if Ilford doesn't get enough orders to make a run your deposit
    will be refunded.

    Ilford gave us a price list of sizes from 5x12 up to 20x24 in both FP4+
    and HP5+ in boxes of 25 sheets.

    As you can see, the success of this program will depend on the ultra
    large format community supporting Ilford and its dealers. The nice part
    is that no one photographer has to shoulder the whole burden.

    Please give me a call if you'd like more details or to check on the
    price of your favorite ULF film size.

    I hope they realize that this gives them a lot of good press even for us non ULF folks. Somehow, I don't see myself going past 8x10, but the fact that Ilford will support this segment of the community makes me more likely to use their products in my cameras.

    I don't shoot LF or ULF but hearing this news is very encouraging in a time when most announcements regarding the production of traditional materials are negative. It makes me feel good to support a company like Ilford when they are making a serious attempt to support us.

    7x11

    Has Ilford given any indication of the size of the order that must be secured before there is a production run of 7x11 format?

    No, Ilford hasn't given us that info yet. I'll post when I find out.

    Fred, I know it's about UFL, but I'm feeling a little neurotic here -- will 8x10 still be readily available throughout the year?
    Also, here's my catch 22... I am planning on getting a 7x17, but I'm not in a position to do that yet. Now I'm imagining that when I get my camera, there will be no film on the market -- will suppliers keep some in stock for people like me -- people new to ULF?
    Thanks, Patricia

    Patricia, two options:

    1. Get camera and if you can't get film at that time, wait for new film tour

    2. Buy some film, put it in freezer, and use it when you get camera

    Boy, oh boy, am I clever or what

    Regards
