    reub2000, why 24exp rolls?
    The roll spends less time in the camera, so it can get souped sooner.

    If it's available in bulk rolls, you can roll any length that's convenient.

    As long as we're all getting everything we want (Thanks, Simon! :) how about packaging some 110 cassettes too? (SOME of us have 110 cameras that can be tweaked to handle ASA 25 film.) (The Minolta 110 zoom SLR for example, with aperture priority metering and fairly generous overexposure compensation)

    Oh, and as for 220, I think I have a possible solution. How about selling "naked" strips of 220 film, which people could tape to the backing ends salvaged from other rolls of 220? (Or, made from leftover 120 backing, with a scissors and tape?)

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that something like this was a fairly common means of selling 35mm film back in the '20s or '30s (and into the '70s or '80s in the USSR) -- spools of "naked" film, with a strip of paper taped over them, which were slipped into an empty cassette (and then the paper pulled out).

    For 220, it'd need to be a bit of a different arrangment, but I think there'd be a market for people who'd be willing to buy plain strips of 220-length film sans paper, sans spool, in a light-tight pouch ("darkroom-open only" packaging, which seems to work OK for sheet film).

    Could it hurt to do a trial run of a few thousand rolls of a single emulsion type to see how it would sell? Or if the beancounters are that nervous, could it hurt to do a little survey? Maybe enclose a slip with some packaged 120 film, asking for input (would you be interested? how many rolls/year? which emulsions? please reply to www.________.com/survey)

    Not exactly a rumour, more like a work-in-progress by Ilford with no definitive market date. See the following post by Simon:

    Using film since before it was hip.

    bravo -ilford-
    I am not excited at all by demise of agfa or kodak or forte. I think that Agfa APX100 and APX400 are among the best we ever had in that class and the only competitors to ilford films. But considering what they all were after, it is what they deserved. I think it is good for photography that all of them are gone for it will make more space for ilford and other small (or normal) manufacturers. I also wish to all employees in ilford happy new year and more stable jobs, and do not dream about China or giant company dealing within art, and all will be fine.

    Why not stick it in a 70mm can and sell in 100' lengths?

    But I wonder if they'd want an extra sku.

    WHAT a shame about APX 100 and 400......I still have a big pile of 400 but looks like I'll have to stock up on Forte as well
