    Ilford SFX Promo Pack in US

    Seems no one is selling this, not online or at my "local" photo store. Had planned to buy two Promo Packs (one for me and one for #2 child) and ten 120 rolls, but now I think I'll use the money to buy Oriental Seagull papers instead.

    Maybe next year, maybe not.

    I had to inform my local lab about it. Seems they didn't know.

    Once I told them, they looked it up on the Ilford website and ordered some in through their local distributor. I was told they'd have 6 promo kits in this week.

    The promo is mentioned on ilfordphoto.com in the info re: the SFX competition and in other product news. the following is from Shutterbug:

    "Ilford SFX 200 has been reintroduced by Ilford PHOTO after an absence from the company's film catalog, and is being launched with a special value promotional pack of three rolls of 35mm ILFORD SFX 200 plus an ILFORD Cokin 'P' filter."

    I was going to buy the SFX if I could get the promopacks. The cost of three $8 rolls of 35mmx36 film AND a $45 filter bought separately (twice, because I wanted to give one to my younger daughter), and ten rolls of $10 each 120 film is too much for me to bother with.

    I really don't need the film, just wanted it to play with. Figured three rolls of 35mm and five rolls of 120 would last me all year (the daughter would receive half of what I bought, as I said). But I certainly need the paper that money can buy, and I don't care much for Ilford's warmtone. Hence, the Oriental.

    I've bought other promos of Ilford before, from B&H and Adorama. I'm certainly surprised this one isn't available.

    ps - my local store seemed to know about the promo packs, just didn't have any for sale.

    B&H usually carries the Ilford promo packs (like the MGIV with some free rolls of HP5+). I suspect they just haven't made it into stock yet.

    Yah, if you look at Freestyle, it's going in and out of stock on their site. I've received just my 35mm rolls, not my 120 rolls.

    I suspect that they need a little time to flow the promo packs and film through everybody's production pipeline.

    If you need a film with extended-red sensitivity like SFX, you might want to try Rollei's Infra-red film that really isn't infra-red (it's only effective up through 720 nm, so it isn't a true infra-red film). That film has been out for a while now & the supply at the moment seems to be a bit more reliable than the SFX's.

    I have the 120, 35mm and 3-packs on order. Wynet emailed me on Friday and said they had shipped so I expect to have stock later this week or next week.
    I haven't set the price yet... waiting to see the final costs.

    Thanks for the heads up, Rob. I'll be keeping watch.
