    Ilford ULF Films any time soon?

    Hi:

    I have read on the Ilford forum that there is a possibility that they will make some ULF films. Does anyone have any info on this? Sizes? Will they cut these sizes one or two times a year?

    Any info would be appreciated.

    It sounds like it's just being proposed now, and they are figuring out what sizes and what emulsion would be most likely to sell. Have a slog through this thread for more info--

    I have no idea what their plans are but if, by some small miracle, they make 7x17 FP4, I will buy a s&*t load of it.

    Just FYI, I noticed that Efke PL100 is on sale in 7x17" at J&C--half price (short or past date, I'm guessing).

    Hi

    I am Simon from ILFORD Photo / HARMAN technology Limited : We are currently in the feasability stage of various ULF sizes ( see the link to the thread ) it will be HP5+ and FP4+ only, date of production will be notified once the product launch phase is agreed.

    Thanks Simon! If I may steal the thread for a moment, Simon, do you know if SFX will make a return and if so, in what formats?

    This is not a realy good message from overseas. HP5+, in size 9x12cm, now in Germany over 30% increase in price??? Is there any explanation for it??? The next price increase for about 20% are the papers. Be aware...

    Release, the best you can do...

    Harry - considering the diminished market, I'd consider a 30% price increase to be rather modest. The new, restructured company needs to be profitable, even if with a smaller market base. The alternative (no film or paper) is even less pleasant.
