Hi everyone,
I have a meeting with one of the Directors for Ilford and Harman, on Thursday, and wondered if there's any burning questions related to the industry that you'd like to know that I could ask him on your behalf?
The questions need to be related to Ilford, Harman or the film/inkjet industries.

Post them here and I'll pick them up before I go.

Printing Out Paper. Any news ?
I think they were trying to work out how to make it on the standard production line, after taking over and closing the old works.

Glass plates. I think they still do some for scientific work, L4 plates e.g. which are supposedly suitable for creative work. However they seem coy about details. It may be that demand is low and costs high so its not worthwhile, but I do wonder if we have a situation where "there's no demand" because the product isn't obviously available.

Have to admit I haven't been doing much film or plate this year, being busy with other matters, but I do intend doing more in future.

Thanks for asking Smile

How do they see the future for 35mm black & white film.

Projected view on long term availability, Of not only 35mm B&W film, But also the kit required to process & print mono.

It would be nice to know, Though I have no intentions of dumping my film cameras just yet....Wink

Echoing cameracat's posting - I currently send B&W film (35mm) to Ilford for D&P (7" x 5" Glossy prints).

I would also like to use some 120 B&W in my TLR in the near future.

How do Ilford see these services as sustainable?

Has Ilford any plans to introduce fine-art papers to beat those made by Hahnemühle?
