For the best example I have ever seen of what's possible with Ilford SFX have a look at " Quality in Photography" by Roger Hicks and Frances Schultz. On page 64 there is " Mill and Foliage" by Frances. OK it must have been 120 rather than 35mm and it was an ALPA but the effect is superb and appears grain free.
Thanks very much for the kind words. Frances was delighted! The filter was Ilford's own gel filter, the only one we have that will fit that lens.
I can't be arsed to read through every post, but was under the impression from reading this thread a little while back that SFX was being re-released around this time (march of 07). My local supplier (and no this isn't a wolf camera kind of place), which is very on top of their film stocks and supply lines, said they'd check with their ilford rep/distributor but thus far had not heard anything from them about availability. Has the re-release date been pushed back or is this a distributor thing?
RK had some on the shelf when I went up there earlier this week for a few bits, we bought one roll as we've not tried any IR photography before, we paid £4.95 for a 35mm roll but think we were charged the 120 price by mistake instead of £5.95, how much did it cost pre Ilford bankruptcy?
