    And there you have it. It works just fine. They are robustly profitable.

    It's NOT an impossible outcome.

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    We just left 6 rolls of film off for processing. It was going to take 2 hours due to the heavy load today, so we left them to pick up tomorrow. See. We are doing our part.

    Yes, a nice, natural toned C-41 color negative film from Ilford would be sweet.

    That being said, Portra is awesome.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    While I'd like alternatives in color Ilford is a small niche company making great products in their niche. I'd much rather they keep doing that than engage in a risky high capital new line.

    Now if they could get the rights to Ilfochrome from "the other Ilford" and make that...

    I'll settle for XP2 Super in 4x5!

    Yes, LF chromogenic b&w please. Trust me it'll be a big splash with our hybrid brethren.

    R&D in color is very very expensive! Synthesis of the color chemistry is very very expensive. Well, you get the picture. I don't want to have Ilford lose out by a big R&D project. Be realistic in this people.

    I personally don't want Ilford to make color. I want Kodak and Fuji to continue!
