Anyone got any idea what has happened to the Ilford Pop-up darkroom that was announced and shown at the Photoshow in September last year? Ilford's website showed them as due in the fall and then in January and there still seems to be no news. I am planning to call them (the website offers no email link), but it keeps slipping my mind when at work. I wondered if anyone here had any news?

I've been waiting for this to move to the next step in my plans for a wet plate project I want to do, but I'm beginning to think its time to look for an alternative. I know some folk have used seed tents, but I'm not sure whether they are any good for this kind of thing and how easy they are to assemble on location.

Just heard back from Ilford. They tweaked the design before launch and then Covid has played havoc with the supply. They are hoping to have them available for purchase in 3 weeks.
