For those who stilll love B&W film & processing, Ilford Films are back on the market. Interesting to see one of them is rated at ISO 3200.

The Delta 3200 has been around for a while and it's a fine film. Pity Kodak dropped TMax 3200!
Yup Illford films still used and recommended on photography course, currently using illford FP4 and HP5!

I'm pretty sure 7day did drop Ilford some time ago because it was too expensive, and told us all to buy Kodak instead. So I went elsewhere Smile

I'm wondering what made them change back - realising we still buy Ilford, or seeing troubles at Kodak maybe ?

Ilford continue to do well and have not stopped production of film.

Perhaps the film is getting cheaper as they now manufacture their own cassettes again?

Harman Technologies, who own Ilford, announced a profit last year, so they must be selling a fair bit of fillum. Personnally I'm not a big fan of HP5 but FP4 is excellent and their cheaper Kentmere film is also very good for the price.
7DS did stop stocking Ilford after a price rise last year but have recently restocked.

They have never been away.

I think that the 7-day Shop scenario may have been the other way round - Ilford stopped supplying them because they were selling too cheap and upsetting other retailers. That was certainly the case with Ilford inkjet paper - glad to see that 7-day shop are now stocking it again (but at considerably higher prices than previously).

Ilford labs do wonderful processing. I had my delta 100 processed and scanned by them last week. (MF)
