    Smile Let's start a petition for Pan-F in 4x5!

    I'm not sure how to set it up technically, but just thought we could let Simon Galley at Ilford know how many people would buy PanF in larger formats if it were available. I'll post something on APUG as well, and perhaps we can consolidate lists. Just add your name to this thread, show your enthusiasm, and we'll make sure Simon sees it.

    It's just not going to happen.

    Simon Galley has explained that the emulsion in PanF is incompatible with the sheet film substrate, and that they've tried but can't get it to work.

    Better hope for Delta 25!

    Polaroid 55 P/N is still available, I have heard that it is actually Panatomic X - try it you will love it! (A little expensive but the quality is unsurpassed.

    I tried to talk to Ilford and got some initial response, but not enough. I want to have real film back - I'm with you... Something nice - double coated, with lots of midtone separation.

    I don't care if it is pan f or the old FP4 - or something new. I think there are a lot of us who would like a "premium" film. Most everyone I talk to is very unhappy with current film.

    I like Ilford's Delta and XP2 films... been shooting them in 6x6 and 35mm, and the only reason I don't use themin 4x5 is that Ilford doesn't sell them in Quickloads...

    Why would you want Pan F in larger formats? Across, Delta 100 and Tmax-100 all have smaller grain and higher resolution.

    Actually Sandy,

    I confirmed with Ilford a while back that Pan F has finer grain than Delta 100, but Delta 100 is a sharper film. I've noticed this when working with MF 6x7 negs.

    Pan-F has a more attractive tonality than Delta 100 (too bottom heavy for my taste) or T-Max 100 (that plasticky B&W video look). Alas, it cannot be.

    As the resident heretic, I've got to say that I'd never use a film that slow in 5x4. OTOH, I'd love to see Delta 400 in 5x4, and I'd sign a petition to get that. Somehow I think we're both doomed to disappointment.

    What about lowering the price of the MGWarmtone?
    A 50/box of 16x 20 $172.00 plus tax!
