    If it is their micrography product that Stephen is referring to, it's called "MICROGRAPHIC FILM"
    http://ilford.com/en/products/micrographic/index.asp

    p5 dye bleaching process, tungsten balanced film for microscopy and archival copying.

    I was under the impression that this was discontinued, so i stand corrected.

    Ilford Imaging in Switzerland make Ilfochrome, Ilfoflex, Ilfocolour, Ilfovinyl and inkjet materials. They do not make photographic film, just output materials - and P3/P3x chemistry for their Ilfochrome material.

    Thanks for clarifying the seemingly identical but different entities. That was a revelation! So the Ilfochrome material is Swiss-made, hmm? Very interesting. Maybe that would explain the astronomical cost of raw materials.

    Astronomical cost is due to low volume production...

    Worth the money though :P

    Ilfochrome really isnt that expensive when you take into account what is it. Fact is quality costs.

    Stephen,

    How many contrast and colour saturation issues have you experienced with printing on Ilfochrome? I guess films like Fuji Astia 100F may be more straightforward to print.

    It doesn't need repeating. And quality never goes out of style.
