    Ilford Tour Report Link

    I haven't noticed a link to this, (If I've missed it, apologies for duplication) but I was there, and this sums up the tour perfectly. Many thanks to Dave Parry for taking the time to report, and repeated thanks to Ilford for organising.

    Dear All,

    I just wanted to say a thank you to Mr.Rusty for posting this and a special thank you to everyone who came and visited with us, especially those who travelled from the USA and Europe.

    It really was great to have such positive and engaging groups, I know our staff enjoyed your visit as well.

    One more tour this coming week and then we are finished for 2013, who knows we may arrange again for 2014 ( perhaps when it is a bit warmer ! ) to get the positive feedback on the tour is great and we are pleased you felt 'part of the family' if only for a day.

    Simon, I think we will feel part of the family for a long time to come.

    I wish I could have made one of these. Perhaps the year after next?

    Great write-up, thank you.

    I didn't realise there was another tour this week. Anyone knows when is that?

    A long and expensive drive put me off going, but I would love to have gone. Dave Parry's report is excellent.

    Simon, can you confirm or clarify the following comment made in his blog post:

    I don't expect you to reveal trade secrets of course, but is this an accurate representation of something Harman are having to manage?

    (wondering if it's related to sensitising dyes for SFX)

    I think it was XP2...? They said they'd made a bit already to last a while, but were working on a way around the latest EU restrictions to keep the product going i.e an alternative 'ingredient'.

    I wonder what is peculiar to XP2+ or Fuji 400 B&W chromogenic which Harman make that isn't in other C41 colour films or might it be that the ingredient applies to colour film as well although this isn't Harman's worry.

    How optimistic was Harman about solving the issue? Take away XP2+ and by that token Fuji as well I'd have thought and that leaves Kodak's chromogenic of which I am not a fan at all and wouldn't use.

    A bit worrying
