    Regards Simon ILFORD Photo / HARMAN technology Limited :
    Don't forget, the early 1980s re-loadable cassettes from Ilford had the problem that is you accidentally dropped them from no more than waist height, they would occasionally spring open.

    It didn't happen often but enough times, that I for one was truely grateful when Ilford moved to a much more robust crimped design.

    Great news, Simon! (though I always saved my Ilford cassettes in 1970s and 80s for reloading, and was careful not to drop them. They were better than any other reloadable cassettes.)

    I'd fully concur. The crimped Ilford cassettes are very robust and in my experience make very serviceable cassettes for re-use with bulk film.All the Ilford cassettes I have used for bulk loading by attaching the bulk film to the remaining inch of film in the cassette have always run more smoothly than the plastic re-usable cassettes designed for bulk loading

    That is the fine firm that was the source of the ARISTA cassettes from Freestyle. (as well as many of the other Arista Brand darkroom supplies)

    I'm a huge fan of their papers! It'll be interesting to see how this film will perform...

    Eh, what film? This announcement is about them starting to make their own 35mm film cassettes. I didn't see anything about a new film.

    Three thumbs up, Simon! This is good news. Gonna have to order some more B&W, though I mostly shoot E-6 these days.
    ME Super

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    220 : We will not re-open this debate if that's OK. Believe me when I say its not viable, sorry.

    Regards Simon ILFORD Photo / HARMAN technology Limited :
    So JUST 35mm cassettes then? I was really hoping to see some "corner the market" cassettes like 126 for example? or 127 for that matter? there's already a few companies making 110 so that wouldn't be a smart move but 126 no one makes but there are tons of 126 cameras out there just waiting for some film, and it's 35mm so you wouldn't have to change anything as far as I know?

    News From HARMAN technology Limited :

    Were there any good 126 cameras? I only remember Instamatics. The film has different perforations and edge markings, but is the same width as 135. The cartridges are plastic, so totally different from 135 in terms of manufacturing.
