    A while - since before they went into administartion, they "resurrected" it again some time ago (it was in one of the 'we are aking this again' announcements by Ilford).

    Since October 2003 (the date of the PDF)?

    I'm not sure about in which markets the single-use camra is sold, however.

    Don't worry, Andy. I forgot to look at whatever we were talking about, too.

    they've been around for more than a few years...I can't say for certain though. I gave a little talk once to a group of schoolkids that take part in a history "club" type thing our museum runs statewide through the school system. They have an architectural preservation photo contest every year and it requires the kids to use b/w film and paper like a mini HABS/NHR survey ...we kept getting questions about what kinds of film to use when everyone was using color neg in their point-n-shoots or later on using digital. I got one of those one-time use cameras with XP2 in it and tried to tell them to use that, but the kids misunderstood this and a lot of them used the HP5 camera, and took the film to local drugstore labs or Wolf etc, and the negs were pretty bad actually, or the parents/teachers complained about how much it cost to get the film developed... XP2 was my choice for the C41 process, but somehow we had a failure to communicate....

    so long story, but I still have one of the XP2 cameras on my desk. it sez, International Paper on it, so that oughta date it as far as Ilford goes. Also has an exp. date of 1998. 24 exposures + 3 extra! "say cheese...Look at the world in Black & White...Fun..Convenient!" "The world looks good in black & white"...

    Dear All,

    We brought back the HP5+ single Use Camera pretty quickly after the establishment of HARMAN technology Limited. Its a popular product in certain markets, especially for people wishing to 'experiment' with monochrome. They are also very popular to keep in the glovebox of your car in case you have a 'prang' .

    And if you didn't already know that Ilford was from the UK - this comment would confirm it!
