    Not if I can help it. I'll pay $200 for that $75 box of chemicals, and turn around and sell it for $85 netting me a sweet $10.

    that chemistry is old....

    The NEW kit 30.2, would cost you probably close to $95 per kit of 2L.

    not to burst any bubbles, our week $ (weak US dollar) and the shrinking Ilfochrome market is starting to hurt.

    The 1-litre P30 kit currently sells in the UK for £45.99, so for two litres that works out as US$ 187 at current exchange rates...

    I know PE says that Ilfochrome depends on chemicals so rare they can only be obtained by vestal virgins milking unicorns, but I still maintain that 'old' Ilford are now just price gouging so they can throw their hands up and say "there was no demand" when they finally kill it off.
    Another day goes under; a little bourbon will take the strain...

    Mind you, Nova seem to be selling a 2-litre kit (i.e. 3x2l) for the same price Silverprint are selling 1-litre... (Old) Ilford's own website is as unhelpful as ever, but as far as I can divine the only small-kit they still manufacture is indeed P30.2, which would suggest that Nova are at least selling the current chemistry.

    I wonder if Silverprint need to update their website, or if they really are selling them at double-the-price. I've bought P30 chemistry from Silverprint before, but I can't remember how big the bottles were...

    Hi Jerold,
    Be careful man.
    I tried two of those outdated kits and could'nt use a single print. The saturation was weak, and the contrast was unpredictable. I tossed the second one.
    I hate to say it, but it's like, you've got to pay to play.
