    Freestyle still has the FB, so I don't know what this means.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    If a product is not made yet or never more, in both cases that does not mean it vanishes from shelves or warehouses immediately.
    Though in some cases manufacturers report a product out of production just when the last lot has left their warehouse.

    I still have a little of the Fiber, but when I tried to re-order I got the quote mentioned above as a reply. Wynit is the distributor for the USA (which includes Freestyle/B&H/etc.) I tried to order both the RC and fiber.

    This isn't good. I was just getting ready to test the FB version for my own use and order a box of the RC for an after school class I am hoping to teach this spring. I guess I may need to adjust my plans. Thanks for the heads up.

    It seems strange to me that the information in that same "product note" was not quoted in full. The impression given by quoting one small part of the information out of context is unlike the text in full. Why was this done?

    The full product note is found in the Ilford Titan pinhole camera kit, regarding the content of the kit. Here is the full text:

    *****PLEASE NOTE*****

    We have encountered technical problems coating the HARMAN DIRECT POSITIVE RC paper. The result of this is that we cannot release the product to end users and as a consequence the product is now out of stock. At this point, whilst our R&D team work on the problem, we are unable to advise when the product will become available.

    Initially, in the ILFORD Pinhole Photography Kit we have substituted the RC product with 10 sheets of HARMAN DIRECT POSITIVE FB paper, which is in stock with no supply issues.

    As a gesture of goodwill we have now also included free of charge an additional 10 sheets 4 x 5 inch ILFORD MULTIGRADE IV RC, which can be used to make a paper negative.

    We sincerely apologise for this enforced change to our publicised intention, and are sure you will agree that by adding the MULTIGRADE paper the kit has been enhanced.

    At the IlfordPhoto site in the products portfolio the RC version has vanished completely (in coordinance with that Ilford note found in the message about their pinhole kit), whereas the fibre version is still listed without comment.

    Let's Simon comment on that note from their retailers.

    FB is still listed at harman express with no comment http://www.harmanexpress.com/prods/1...TIVE-PAPER.htm so I doubt there is a supply issue as Ilford Harman are good at keeping people informed.
