    I think one of the last times I was in Freestyle they said that the 11x14 Arista was discontinued. The Efke that I just processed is real nice. They have it in 25 and 100.

    Try MPEX ... website shows Ilford FP-4 listed in 11 x 14. Might have to check with Jim for current stock status.

    Didn't Freestyle stop carrying Arista.Edu 100 in 11x14? I'll have a look, the next time that I'm on the Freestyle website—and I go there for drooling activities pretty much every day or two.

    thanks all -

    have emailed both fotoimpex and mpex (similar names huh)

    we'll see - I'm pretty keen for the Efke as the price is good, that being said for whatever reason my FP4 negs come out better for Pd in side by side comparisons in all developers I have used, seems like with and adequately long time in the soup it just gives up and goes 'oh, ok then have a damn fine neg then' - others always persist in being comparably thin in detail and/or high base fog.

    I'm not as scientific with as I know some here are - certainly more than my mates: "fb+f" WTF ?!? - heh heh, perhaps the extra expense of ULF will get me into it a bit more

    heh heh - I could have made that clearer, aside from one individual I meant my other mates who do a bit of film photography, they have no idea what it means

    Nick, I would say to try the Efke PL 100 first. You can extend development and it handles it very well. I have had good success with both the 25 and the 100. You do have to be careful in handling the film. I have not scratched any yet. The Pyro helps I think.

    Nick,

    Last Ilford run when all the dealers were out of stock they could still get LF and ULF film from the distributor. You might call Denis or Fred at the VC store and ask specifically if they have tried or would try their Ilford distributor. I can't remember the distributor's name. When they all have stock I think you will find the VC store has the best price and good service. Tel: 480-767-7105-Denis Mon-Friday open 11:00 AM eastern time.

    The second thought would be to post a "wtb" here and in the LF Forum. If you are not a member there you need to sign up and wait 30 days to post ads. Much of the 7x17 film I use has come out dated from other people’s freezers at a reduced price but in excellent working condition.

    Just so you know 11x14 isn't part of the ULF run... it never was... it's the largest size that is always available... similar to 8x10.
    If the dealer is out of stock... or doesn't stock the item, they should still be able to order it with their regular Ilford order.

    I thought that 11x14 fp4+ was part of the ULF run, and that hp5+ was a regular stock item?
