Hi All,
Someone I have spoken to in the photographic retail trade tells me that he's heard from his "mole" that the feeling within the "analogue" part of Ilford is that things there have been neglected by those in high places in favour of promoting and pushing the digital side (no great surprise!) and that if there had been a more balanced view the current problems would never have arisen. Apparently one of the main factors in securing the future of the Ilford products is the huge volume made and sold very profitably to the medical market.
