    very good news indeed!!

    I posted your link straight away on a German forum to cheer them up a bit!

    Great news, that is!

    And I like that loyal customers seemed to have made some sort of impact with the receivers - maybe you can move some things after all!

    At least you can try...

    I notice they make a point of pointing out "monochome" in their statements. As an Ilfochrome printer, I hope they can continue to sell the Ilfochrome paper and chemicals.

    Thanks for the "insider" article!

    Good to hear more optimism coming from ilford. Just placed an order yesterday for 8x10 and 11x14 warmtone FB.

    Now I will continue to keep my fingers crossed that Sheet film will continue to be produced by the roll so we can have source for ULF sizes of HP5 and FP4.

    I could slow down buying films as my freezer is void of any edible items. Now, if AgfaPhoto would just get their business straightened up, no need to purchase a second freezer.

    Great news !!

    "On non-monochrome products, the rights to Ilford brand continue to be held by Ilford Imaging of Marly, located between Berne and Lausanne in Switzerland".

    The "new" Ilford is only concerned with the "old" Ilford's B&W materials. As the Swiss operation is heavily inkjet based these days, it's anybody's guess what will happen to Ilfochrome..

    Dave. Seeing this has prompted me to say that on checking Ilford paper prices last night at a number of suppliers I could not find better than Mathers of Bolton, in UK

    . Packet of 100 (5x7) Ilford Multigrade IV RC( Glossy or Pearl) £9.90 plus £2.95 postage.
    Packet of 100(8x10) £19.90 plus £3.95 postage. They take orders by phone or fax or e-mail and if it is before 4:00pm it is despatched that day.

    Downside is that only multigrade IV is available

    Nova Darkroom on 10x8 is nearly as good but has higher postage charge( about £4.95 I think) although I think it stays at that irrespective of weight - presumably within reason but worth checking out as it sells a lot of heavy stuff like secondhand enlargers where postage would be monstrous otherwise.

    Any UK based subscribers know of better deals?

    PS Dave. I was very interested to see your East Midlands Monochrome Group site and your notes in APUG. Your group is what I have been looking for to help me with B&W. I'll try and make one of your meetings - I am only about 22 miles to the west in Daventry but unfortunately 6 July is out for me.

    I think the best recent news is that some of Ilford's powdered chemicals are coming back. Check B&H for availability. I know Perceptol's not listed yet, but it's supposed to be back soon...I can hardly wait!
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.
