The KENTMERE and ILFORD brands are obviously very different, we discontinued this product as it was no longer viable to coat due to the low volumes sold. The ILFORD range of film and paper products have never had a product range deleted* since HARMAN technology Limited took over, and we have only added NEW products, this is our clearly stated committment to analog photography WE KEEP ALL ILFORD branded products.
First, thanks for the communique. I understand and accept that you have to be profitable to stay in business. I admire your company's commitment to analog photography and support you in the best way I know how--by buying your products (it helps that you make very good products) Analog photographers are a hardy lot (we have a community website) and we will adjust, albeit grudgingly!
