    Dear Simon,

    The reason for the original query about was that in the ULF run a box of 3.5 X 2.5" film, 25 sheets, is £16.56 (on the Ag site)

    But then the next size up, quarter plate - 25 sheets, jumps to £77.59.

    That is more than four times the price, over £3 per sheet.

    It almost the same price as a box of 4 X 10" and only a little cheaper than a box of whole plate, which is obviously four times the area of film.

    It is just such a big jump in price, it just didn't sound right!

    If the price isn't based on the size but more on the expense of cutting and packing a 'special' size, I wonder why 3.5 X 2.5" is so very much cheaper than the rest?

    That doesn't sound right. Just as an example of US pricing, Badger is showing 2.25x3.25 at $32.95, and 3.25x4.25 at $54.95.

    Simon,

    In another thread I posted that Fred Newman had contacted me that my 7x17 HP5+ was in. Please add my thanks and pleasure to you and the folks that make the film and also the paper for that matter. Tell them that I had had to stoop to using 8x10 film while I waited, Ilford of course.
