    Current availability / UK price of Ilford HP5 9x12cm?

    Can anyone confirm the current availability and price of Ilford 9x12 sheet film? I emailed Silverprint about it a few weeks ago and didn't get a reply, which was unusual. I'd call them to check but I'm overseas. I'm curious because I've just seen some outdated HP5 on ebay listed with a buy it now price of $78.60 for 25 sheets which seems crazy (unless that format has become much harder to get from Ilford suddenly, hope not).

    Isn't 9x12 from Harman's yearly special-order run?
    I don't think it's a stock size.

    Silverprint might have had a few boxes left from someone who didn't collect their order last time round maybe. they can be a bit hit and miss replying to emails, you could try again

    I just checked the August 2014 product availability pdf from Ilford, Delta 100 and HP5 9x12 "usually in stock", FP4 9x12 "stock". That tallies with my experience a couple of years ago, Silverprint didn't have 9x12 and 13x18 in stock but were able to get some within a couple of days.

    Thanks for the info about Silverprint being hit and miss with email, I'll try again.

    oh that's interesting. I just went by what you can buy from HarmanExpress, which is probably not as reliable as the pdf which I didn't know about 'til your post.

    Perhaps Simon Galley will see this post and reply - or you could PM him?

    I've sent emails to Silverprint to which I have never had a reply, and others to which they've replied within minutes!

    Thanks, that's exactly the information I wanted. £37.90 for 25 sheets is a bit depressing.
