    For a thread titled Ilford Color Film? I'm mildly surprised that Simon has not yet shown up here to gently slap some sense into us. Being able to tell us "no way, no how, not now, not ever" and then have us all profusely thank him afterward for that response is quite the unique skill he possesses. And uses to great effect. Perhaps he is on holiday?

    If I were Simon I'd be doing the same thing that I'd be doing if I were me (which I am).

    Ilford is currently stable. It would be bad for them to take the risk of diversifying into color film. It is likely that the money expended would have little return thus leading to their collapse. I would far rather have a stable manufacturer of color film than one teetering on the edge trying to produce color film. I really like Ilford black and white films and would hate to see them go away because of a stupid decision. It is best that they stick to their niche.

    Ilford does have a film distribution network set up, and finishing and packaging equipment.

    So if they wanted to partner with a manufacturer .....

    Yes, they do. And it's a very good one.

    Ilford's distribution world-wide is excellent, I switched back to Ilford films after a break of about 20 years because I just couldn't buy Tmax easily when travelling. What suprised me was Ilford films were readily available but so were Foma.

    It wouldn't be the first time Ilford partnered with another company, they had links with Konica/Sakura and manufactured some films for Fuji.

    Do you mean the BWC-41 they have? or something else I'm not aware of?

    Yes. XP2.

    I was wondering if the fact that it was C41 meant they were close to having colour capability or if the colour part adds a lot of extra complexity.

    It obviously does but are they over half way there already with a C41 film?


    Steve.
