    I've only used the 35mm service, but it is very good, and quite quick. I'll certainly give the 120 service a try out.

    Simon,

    Will there be a similar service for this side of the pond?

    Process is dedicated mono processors ( FP40's ) negs are scanned then to a custom FUJI Frontier re-chipped and converted to monochrome exposing to our RC digital monochrome silver gelatin paper. Quality we believe to be outstanding.

    European service later this year, further printing options later this year, cannot do stateside at this time.

    I have a friend who I'm slowly converting to the dark side (persuaded him he needed to buy a Fed for peanuts from a camera shop in Budapest when we were there, and now he's talking about picking up something like a Canon A1 - yay,) and I gave him one of the Ilford process envelopes after I'd heard they brought the service in-house; we were both very impressed with the results, so that's another vote of confidence from me.

    Possibly counterintuitively I'd say it's a particularly good service if you shoot the C41 B&W films like XP2 - while the advantage of them is obviously that any old minilab can process them, the prints they produce often have strange colour casts: not a problem of course with Ilford's genuine B&W prints.
    Another day goes under; a little bourbon will take the strain...

    I was think of using this service for exactly that.

    I also think the prints from digital files service would be of interest to users of those alternative technology cameras who may like monochrome prints on 'proper' monochrome paper with no colour cast.

    Prints from B&W tranparencies

    Simon

    Presumably Ilford can produce high quality B&W images from B&W transparencies. Currently people have to have Ilfochromes which aren't ideal.

    Could you find out more, I know a number of people have B&W films processed as transparencies by dR5 in the US.

    Cheers Ian,

    I'm one of the dr5 brigade as you know and you beat me to asking the question...!

    I usually use Cibas (which can be amazing with a good printer) or Lambdas from transparency scans (ssshhh!) but it would be great to have the Ilford option...
