    Ilford: Any further news?

    I know this subject appears fairly frequently, but I haven't heard anything further about Ilford in the past 60 days. Have there been any further developments?

    Ilford: Any further news?

    I am having a depressingly hard time getting any info on product leaving Europe to North America. Being told a ship with product may or may not have left. I have been patient , but Ilfords lack of response as to whether materials are coming is not good

    Ilford: Any further news?

    Some days ago, I wanted to buy some FB Paper from Ilford. I went to the store (in Zurich), where I usually get things like this. The shelfs were almost empty. Instead notes where placed that Ilford hard difficulties to deliver etc. Quite spooky.

    As far as chemicals go I think that Perceptol is one of Ilfords best products, if they are stopping production does anybody know the formula?

    FWIW:

    I asked my Jessops sales person (here in London) that question last week.

    They have been told that only the chemicals are discontinued and that Ilford continues to manufacture and distribute film and paper.

    He said the sense was that the patents to the chemicals would be bought by someone soon and were likely to become available under someone else's brand name.
