    Simon, I hope you don't regret telling about the plans, even though it didn't work out this time. I am soo happy with fp4+ and pyrocat right now. Now I got curious about Pan F...

    Live long ilford. I do not think you will ever pay off such research, run and investment in iso-25 Delta. Good news you guys reallized the same.

    But, Pan F+ in sheet would certainly appeal to me.
    Personally I find FP4+ a bit too quick for my ancient shutters and hand capped lenses!

    Steve. I think that there was a comprehensive reply from Simon Galley on why no chance of Pan F in sheet form quite recently. Maybe someone else will help out with the thread title

    As for 220, I intend to continue asking for it. If you don't like it, shoot me.
    Well, Simon has stated emphatically that it won't happen. Would your prefer to be blindfolded for the firing squad? :rolleyes:
    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.

    I guess what the others told me earlier last year was true, that this film won't come out.

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/2...-25-no-go.html

    But I was hopeful. Thanks anyway Simon for the update. It would be nice to see Pan F stick around. Funny thing is we can have a Delta 100 and FP4+, and Delta 400 and HP5+, but can't have a Delta 25 and Pan F+. Really shows how small the market is for slow speed film. Its a shame they couldnt make a Delta 25 just for 4x5, since Pan F can not be made in that.

    Anyway Kudos to Ilford for even considering making a new 25 speed film.

    Completely agree with this! I would love to see Delta 400 in 4x5 sheets...

    Why not use neutral density filters? Or if you need that slow of a speed there is always Efke 25, or maybe it's time to upgrade equipment...

    Next to no one bought it while it was available. When Ilfords local representative for Germany (80 million inhabitants btw) was asked why they stopped to offer Delta 400 in sheets he responded: "Last year we had five people ordering it. Two of them were you and me."

    On this background I think its a good decision not to make another 25 ASA film but to save the money for other future developments, eg. updating the current products. I for one would would like the deltas to stand high temperatures and lots of agitation as good as the Kodak films do.

    best

    Thanks for the update Simon. As others have said, so long as we have FP4+, HP5+, PAN F, SFX and the Deltas, I'll be happy!

    Thanks for the update, Simon. Please continue to put the financial viability of the company and the existing product range first (like you needed telling )!

    I collect old wood and brass cameras, so upgrading would kinda miss the point!

    But yes, maybe I should look at Efke.


    It is no big deal either way. To be completely honest, if Ilford had issued Delta 25 in sheet I would have got round to buying one box eventually probably kept it until it was past it's sell by date - and might even have got round to buying a second, one day... There has to be a bit more of a market than people like me to make it viable

    As long as they keep doing FP4+ in every size and format they can then we should all be happy...
