    Message to Ilford

    Friends at Ilford,

    I'm a long-time satisfied user of both your film and paper. Thank you for your commitment to black & white photography.

    Two requests:

    1. Please bring back Delta 400 in 4X5 sheets.

    2. Would it be possible to put your Warmtone emulsion on a whiter paper base?
    I've used your warmtone since it came out whenever I want a warm-toned print, and I love the emulsion. I'm a fan of shadow detail, and your warm-tone delivers that wonderfully. However, I often want a slightly less warm, more neutral, but not cool-tone effect. For that Agfa's MCC was my paper of choice.
    If your warm-tone emulsion were available on a whiter base, the resulting paper would be great!

    Good idea. There is a long tradition, going back through Agfa's Record Rapid and Kodak's Illustrator's Special, of warm blacks and clean whites.

    The Warmtone base can be pretty murky at times, and I miss MCC !

    I agree in comparison to the regular MGIV that the base has a stained and murky look. I actually had complaints on this because the prints looked really stained when mounted to white matt board. It would seem to me though that this has a great deal to do with the warm look of the paper once printed.

    Have you tried warming the tone of the MGIV through toning Larry? I've found it works great and I get that nice, white paper base border. I use a very diluted sepia tone coupled with a dash of selenium at the end.

    When they get the Postcode and other teething problems sorted, the new Ilford Photo site (www.ilfordphoto.com) has a new product request form that should prove popular!

    Cheers, Bob.

    I'll second the request for Delta 400 in 5x4 at least.

    I'd also use Delta 400 in sheet sizes (2x3", 4x5", 5x7", 8x10", 11x14").

    Yes, my feelings exactly. I have only purchased one pkt of warmtone for this reason (still haven't used it all either). Same reason I use Agfa Viradon rather then Kodak Sepia toner, the whites are less affected.

    Just call them up. Tell them you want the APUG discount.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
