I've just gotten started in IE film, and after I got my first 2 rolls of IE from Efke, I was very impressed with what I saw. Now I hear that it might be cancelled as well. At least Ilford is looking closer into producing an IE film. Hopefully the reports will come back positive. I won't be buying cases of the stuff, but now that I have seen it, I'm hooked.
I have to admit that I am not as upset over the papers since the only paper I have ever tried was the Ilford MGIV RC paper, when I was developing my own pictures in beginning photography. Eventually, I want to set up a dark room in my home and start to develop pictures again.
Here's hoping that Ilford can make it profitably.
