70mm Ilford ULF error READ TODAY!!! we can order 70mm!!!!
There was some miscommunication about the 70mm order from ilford, if you dont know, ilford is making 50ft 70mm rolls in both Double Perforated and NON-perforated available as a special run.
THIS IS (almost) GUARANTEED now because apparently enough people signed up.... but one guys is in Norway and Freestyle can't get in contact with him, so we need your help!!
ANYONE who wants to order a roll or two of the 70mm double pert AND non-pert, please do so TODAY, if you don't call TODAY by the close of business, that's it... (there's a tiny window in the first 10 minutes they are open tomorrow before they send out the final numbers to ilford, but really, just call today!!) Freestyle is in California so call before they close!

Good job Stone, grassroots at its best......
Who is our missing John/Jane Doe????
Maybe it's Nicolai? Ohhhh Nicolai....are you the missing link?
OH don't forget you can re-roll the 70mm non-perf into 116 and 616 rolls for use in old folders too!
Update: If you don't see this until tonight, and freestyle is closed, Lauren has told me that you can email her overnight, and in the morning she can call you and take the credit card info and charge it, BUT YOU HAVE TO ANSWER YOUR PHONE or she won't be able to put it in
It's 2pm now there, so you have like 3 hours to call...
otherwise use this email: firstname.lastname@example.org
and leave her your contact info and she will do her best to get orders in first thing in the morning before submitting them to Ilford.
The Double Perforated is still in danger because the Norway guy isn't responding, so PLEASE if you need some 70mm Double Perf, order 2 rolls!
I can verify that Stone is not imagining this. I also talked to Lauren and got a confirming e-mail that the minimum has been met (I actually upped my order just in case). Lauren said they are open till 6:00PDT so, as Stone said, just a few hours left!

Thanks Bently, did you order the non-perf or the double perf? last I spoke with her she said someone who saw this ordered 2 rolls of the non-perf but that the double perf still had 2 more orders needed to meet the amount needed if Mr. Norway doesn't return her messages in time.

Often visit NYC and pass through CT. Grew up in Queens, Mother-in-law is still there. Maybe our paths will cross.
Ya know I didn't ask her how many total, I should have, but maybe tomorrow, don't want her line to be busy when another order is attempted... oh so then you're not the one she meant, so I guess you put us over the top yay!

OH well... glad we're all good, but don't miss out guys! just order!
And yes that would be cool, there's another guy in CT who we keep trying to hang out, did once and I forgot my camera! I was in a rush not to be late and forgot I had taken it inside and not left it in my car the night before. I always wondered if he thought I was making it all up haha.
Let me know when you're around.
Wow. Unfortunately (or thankfully?) I'm not into 70mm yet, although I seem to be trying everything around the shop lately.
It's this kind of news and support that restores my faith in the film industry, and is one day going to make me hit the 'buy' button on a wacky old folder (or they make 70mm backs for hassies, right?)...
An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.
f/64 and be there.
which films-which prices?
Which films and which prices?
Why cant Ilford take orders from single persons? At least if they dont live in the usa. In europe.
