    All this DOES make sense for the one-hour labs.

    Hmmm... I did not know that Fuji Crystal Archive was "double duty". I have been using Ilfocolor --- I love the stuff. I'll try some Fuji in the near future.
    From experience I know for a fact that the pictures the photo labs print from digital files onto wet process color paper looks a lot smoother, sharper, and better color rendition that what I can do on my Epson 2200. I wish I had one of those machines myself to play with.

    Yet more bad news and at the end of the day we have no choice but to wait and see if the administrators think that there is a profit margin worth making in film to be able to find a buyer. So for the time being I'll carry on until we hear the outcome. I see no point is chasing around finding alternative films and papers for them to disappear just when I can guarantee a customer a standard I feel comfortable with. If all the big players pull out then I guess I'll retire from photography altogether

    Courts maybe throw out digital evidence when it's from somebody else. But he is an official sworn in police officer/photographer. And courts here in Holland accept his digital photographs. The only occasions he uses his analog equipment now is for family pictures. ALL policework is done digitally.

    Think I will buy a freezer and fill it with FP4 in roll and 4x5 sheets.

    I think this is opportunity knocking for you, Sean. You're often complaining about how much you dislike your current day job. Make them a reasonable offer for the film business - you can worry about how to pay for it later. Imagine the new label - "APUG Ilford FP4 +" - ect... Hard times call for bold risk taking! We'll all be right behind you - depending of course on how much shipping from New Zealand costs, and if it takes more than a week...

    Ilford in trouble???

    This is a sad day indeed but it is looking more and more that film photographers ( except for Kodak and Fujicolor at Walmart) may be in deep trouble. This is troubling indeed.

    As a long time devotee of Delta 100 and ID11, I am more than saddened by this news; I actually lost sleep over it last night. I know it's premature to mourn what's not yet dead, but there's a pall that may not lift for quite a while if ever. The bright side? Entrepenuership is a quirky and infinitely surprising enterprise. Welcome to the world of the 'niche market'. For example, I know of a tiny artist's oil paint firm in Kingston, NY that makes extraordinary products which serve a loyal artist community. The owner does well, but he cares about his product and the people who use it as much as he regards his 'bottom line'. I hope we'll eventually be as well served by suppliers of analog materials who feel similarly.
