    Thanks for this Oren. I've been waiting so I can order a quantity of 4x10 FP-4.

    Re: Ilford ULF annual order period for 2021

    Has anybody placed an order in previous ULF runs through one of the distributors that operate in the eurozone that he/she can recommend? I checked the web site of a couple of them and was not impressed. I live in Germany and I’d rather avoid US and UK distributors - many of whom I know and like a lot - for I am afraid that custom duties plus S&H are gonna kill me.
    Tnx!

    Let's reverse your logic.

    I have not read any complaints about Ilford Special order, ever.

    People love to complain...where are they...


    Personally I have become Anxious waiting for delivery, but never disappointed.

    One year I got mine so fast it had to be in stock, CONUS.

    Happy surprise.

    Order locally!

    Is it cheaper than just buying 8x10 and cutting it yourself in half? Iím also wondering whether order some 4x10 myself but if thereís no real advantage then Iím not sure.

    About the same price but you get a box that fits and no extra dust and hassle from cutting in half.

    My last order was in 2009 (from the US), and after that I did not follow the situation. The names of the distributors in the EU are completely unfamiliar to me and I have no idea what their track record is. There is no local distributor in Germany and apparently I have to order from Belgium, from a web site www.bon-image.com that yesterday and today did/does not work. Is this distributor a familiar name re: the Ilford yearly ULF run or this year is its first time?

    It does not seem so bizarre to ask for someone's previous experience with some of these distributors, considering also the amount of money involved.

    I wish they offered 5x8 inch. They have some unusual sizes offered.

    From the Ilford website:

    The options available reflect what has been asked for over the past 16 years. We are happy to consider any other size suggestions but do not guarantee to make them available.

    That isn't idle rhetoric - the current list is quite a bit longer than where they started. Long ago I participated in the discussion that led to 6.5 x 8.5 being added. So although there are no guarantees, if you really want 5x8, ask them about it. As there is some setup and overhead cost for each format, best if you can make a convincing case that if Harman goes to the trouble, they actually will get orders for a reasonable number of boxes, whether from you alone or if you know of others who will join you.
