    Dear Harry,

    We have many factors that influence the cost of manufacture, raw materials, energy costs, batch sizes, stock turns etc, when you get to low volume products like mono sheet films we have had to adjust pricing. But what you have seen in Germany ( and other places as well ) is a combination of factors, some related to the change to a distributor market and and price adjustments that were required on the founding of the new company HARMAN technnology Limited back in February. We will do our best to offer best value for money and continue to make as wide a range of products available as possible.

    Simon.

    Unfortuantely the scarcity of mfgs of ULF film is going to have an effect on pricing. Also as demand for smaller formats decreases the cost of production and running the machines has to be spread over a smaller pool of consumers.

    If Ilford was the only game in town I would be worried about overly high pricing, but with Efke and Foma also making ULF film there is competition.

    Personally I don't mind paying higher prices for Ilford or Kodak ULF film for one reason- consistency. With Ilford I am 99.9% confident that when I buy film the quality will be excellent. IN ULF FP4 and HP5 should handle any possible subject matter and situation.

    Hello Simon:

    We are anxiously waiting Ilford ULF films and to continue to support Ilford in their contribution to the LF community. FP4 is my choice and I will acquire a second freezer with news of availability of sheet films in larger sizes. Cheers!
