    Any alternative to Ilford in Continental Europe? Efke/Adox and Bergger, that's it? And what is your preferred source for them? I am only interested in 14x17.

    Thanks a million.

    I really donít understand you at all! Buy a camera based on film availability? You can buy a 135 mm, 120, 4x5 or 8x10 and there is no problem at all to get films! I mean Ilford because that is what you want
    The higher you go the more difficult is to get films but itís not impossible! (However itís not likely to be Ilford) To be an ULF photographer is not like going down to your local shop and buying 25 sheets! Forget it!
    There are all sizes available from different manufacturers but to be an ULF man requires planning ahead and some money! This means buying large quantities and stores it those in your fridge frozen until using it and see to it that you have some money to a new order at the time you open your last box!
    Letís say that Kodak push out some unusual ULF films it would be sold out within days or so! The most reliable source in Europe is this guy http://www.mamutphoto.com/forum/index.php?topic=366.0 however he is selling Forte under the name of Europan and at least he is not lying about it but, he will take your money in advance and fix everything within two or three weeks. No neon signs or anything like that but deliver factory fresh film. This is hard to beat.
    In my opinion the most common sizes are 11x14 and 7x17 and it's probobly the easiest to by film over the disk. But I'm not sure about this and maybe somebody may correct me here.

    Its about time you came clean and told everybody that you are the person selling this film. Good luck in your enterprise, but you should consider being a sponsor here.

    ULF Film is still cut by Forte, Bergger and currently Ilford. I'm sure others will follow in China.

    The backside of this is that more products are coming out of china the more jobs we are loosing.
    It maybe so that the UK hasn’t got unemployed people but some other countries in Europe the situation is different! And films coming out of China it will affect the overall revenue of Ilford, Kodak, Forte, Efke, Foma and other companies.

    I quite agree. The UK does have high unemployment and manufacturing here is at its lowest since the 19th Century!

    According to OECD figures, in 2006, the UK had the joint lowest rate of unemployment (joint with Japan) of all G7 countries and the highest rate of employment (includes self employed and others who do not figure in unemployment figures).

    Whilst manufacturing continues to decline, so it does in all other developed countries. It is of no real consequence financially as other so-called "knowledge industries" have more than taken up the slack.

    WRT China: it was China that knocked the UK off its spot as world's 4th largest economy last year...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Yes Bob you are right about the “knowledge industry” it sure pick up some but its open only for young people with a high academic education and it’s not going to help that machine operator at Ilford, Efke or at Forte with their some 45 years of age. Or for any lower educated person here in this country either now if we are talking about Europe as one united country. Are we united?

    Bu the way we are far off from the topic here. Aren't we? :-)
