    Oh, the news are really great - if ILFORD HARMAN would carry the whole line of the products needed for quality black-and-white photography, including toners, it would help greatly to many people. I am making my selenium toner now all by myself from raw selenium - who knows, if ILFORD toner would be available and the price would be attractive, maybe I would switch? Much thanks to you, Simon, and to new wise ILFORD management!

    Cheers from Moscow, Zhenya

    That's great news, Simon. I still have a pretty good supply of KRST on the shelf, but when it runs out, I'll be interested in trying out the Ilford alternative.

    According to my rigorous scientific testing (sniffing it) KRST must be 70 - 80% ammonium thiosulfate based on how much stronger it stinks than the 60% ammonium thiosulfate I use for making fixer. Will the Ilford product use ammonium thiosulfate to create the alkaline environment (that is why they use it, right?) the selenium needs to work in?

    This is great news. I have always preferred Ilford's chemistry in general and use Kodak's Selenium currently. Eagerly awaiting the availability of Bromophen right now.

    I'm interested. I've used Kodak's product exclusively for many years but I have my doubts it will remain available much longer in the future.

    Simon,

    a related question. Why do the Ilford papers, in my experience, not take to toning as well (and quickly) as others such as Forte, Kentmere, etc?
