I was in the market for 18x24 cm film sheets, but didn't order due to the high prices. I'm not saying Ilford is too expensive, not at all. I believe they can't produce it cheaper in this declining market. But I just can't afford that kind of prices for making negatives.
So I'm looking into other possibilities like paper negatives or X-ray film sheets.
I'll save up for next year and try to participate.
