The promo is mentioned on ilfordphoto.com in the info re: the SFX competition and in other product news. the following is from Shutterbug:
"Ilford SFX 200 has been reintroduced by Ilford PHOTO after an absence from the company's film catalog, and is being launched with a special value promotional pack of three rolls of 35mm ILFORD SFX 200 plus an ILFORD Cokin 'P' filter."
I was going to buy the SFX if I could get the promopacks. The cost of three $8 rolls of 35mmx36 film AND a $45 filter bought separately (twice, because I wanted to give one to my younger daughter), and ten rolls of $10 each 120 film is too much for me to bother with.
I really don't need the film, just wanted it to play with. Figured three rolls of 35mm and five rolls of 120 would last me all year (the daughter would receive half of what I bought, as I said). But I certainly need the paper that money can buy, and I don't care much for Ilford's warmtone. Hence, the Oriental.
I've bought other promos of Ilford before, from B&H and Adorama. I'm certainly surprised this one isn't available.
ps - my local store seemed to know about the promo packs, just didn't have any for sale.
