    Simon is a busy man. She'd have to be worth her weight in silver ...halides!

    Go Ilford go! Ilford Pan F+ with extended IR sensitivity to 950nm in 120roll (35mm midgets get a release 1 year later of course).

    We're not asking for much

    While we're asking for stuff (hey, Christmas is coming...) How about true IR in 4x5? I shot with Kodak's in the '80s and loved it. Didn't use it often, but sometimes it was just the right thing. I'd buy some again. (but I would take the 120 if offered too)

    Yes, 4x5 and 120; I need 'em both! I currently have 25 sheets of expired HIE (still good), 130 or so sheets of IR820, and just a couple rolls of IR820 Auras in the fridge... The HIE is so nice because I can shoot it handheld with my Speed Graphic..!

    I laid in 15 rolls of 120 IR820 at the news, about all I felt like buying of a film I've never shot that cost $12 (first 5 rolls I bought) and then $14.49 (10 more rolls) each. None in 4x5. If Freestyle gets some in for that last shipment I may get some. Thing is, I have normal screw in IR72 filters for my 35mm and MF cameras. Two of my three 4x5 lenses are odd sizes though and I use a 3x3 filter holder. I don't have a red #25 or 29 either as I find I don't one stronger than a 23 with normal film, but that won't cut it with these IR films, so I'd have to do something about that.

    I'm sure I would if I could get Ilford IR. As it is with only Rollei in 4x5...meh. I would probably just stick to medium format, maybe some 35mm.

    I never had the chance to shoot 4x5 IR, so I'd really love to now.

    True IR film from Ilford

    I would also buy some in 4x5 and 120.

    To be honest, I'm retired, and happy if Ilford don't retire any film products.

    A new film product from Ilford will be truly exciting. I can't remember any recent new film products, other than format size adjustments for marketing.

    Preferable 'extreme' or specialist niche: extreme IR; or extreme slow grain IR film like Pan IR F+ ; not just medium grain FP4+ used as a substrate. Or even extreme speed (Ilford Delta 3200 sensitised to 850nm would be). Please don't make it another FP4+ with extended red sensitivity to another 100nm. That would be the definition of Kodak: an anti-climax. Unless it was in sheet film ....hmmm maybe then it would be exciting

    New emulsion be damned, I'd settle for 4x5" sheets of SFX200. A lot less technology risk for Ilford and therefore IMHO more likely to happen.

    However, I do have a good stash of IR820 (~10 rolls and 200 sheets) so I'm not in nearly as much hurry as others might be. And I'm so glad I shot a bunch of it while I was in Mongolia!

    There are cheaper alternatives to SFX, including in 4x5 sheets. A true IR film would be the best thing since sliced bread
