    Backordered Ilford Sheet Film

    I've had a couple hundred sheets of 4x5 FP4+ on back-order from B&H for two weeks now. I see Freestyle lists 100 sheet boxes of HP5+ as on back-order and past due date.

    Anyone heard of a possible factory ship date?

    We have no stock outs on any ILFORD Photo product ex.factory, we rarely have, I guess its a temporary
    shipping issue Stateside.

    Cool. Thanks, Simon.

    I need at least a hundred sheets for a trip in May and my current stock is getting low. This FP4+ you're pedaling is like a drug - I start to get nervous when I'm running out! =)

    When the price went up a few weeks ago people stocked up. This cleaned out the "In stock" inventory everywhere. Then the stores re-ordered, which cleaned out the distributors as well. It seems to take 6 weeks for the distributors to replenish from the UK.
    So the result is it's out of stock in most places but floating across from the UK.

    Thanks for the distributor insight, Rob. Sounds like I should have it in plenty of time for May 10th departure then.

    My order for a few hundred sheets of FP4+ at B&H was marked "In stock, order sent to warehouse" today! Anyone else waiting should be receiving theirs soon.
