    Ilford Direct Positive Paper

    I just got word that Ilford stopped making the Direct Positive Paper. Is this old news and I am just way behind??? Sad to hear it, but not super surprised either.

    You need to provide details of which rumour mongerer you heard it from as no-one will take you seriously otherwise.

    That does not necessarily mean the end for that paper. I could imagine something like "We still got the wharehouse full of it, so we don't do the production-run scheduled this year."

    A quote from my rep, "...please note that Ilford stopped making the direct positive items..."

    From the Ilford Photo web site

    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.

    AGX, that quote can be found on the ilfordphoto.com home page, just under the image of the pin hole camera. Of course, as has been pointed out, they are referring to the RC version, but all the same, as I am someone who does not hang around here too often, it is NEW news to me.
