A couple of senarios for the fate of ULF film...
1.There will continue to be one or two outlets that will continue to stock ULF film and we will have a choice as always.
2.Special order only from a couple of manufactuers from retailers in relatively small quantities.
3. A group of us will get together with each spending several thousand dollars to make a big special group order from Kodak in ULF.
4.Coat your own glass plates.
I'm hoping there will be alternatives for us in ULF but frankly I thought that Ilford would be the one company that would endure. It looks like unless someone steps in to save the day the Kodak alternative seems most likely.
I think there is much potential for growth in ULF but if the film companies relinquish their support, we are in big trouble, and so are the LF camera companies.
