Thanks to the prevalence of digital photography and the fact that camera stores seem to be closing left and right, it can be hard enough to find film in the first place these days. But if you shoot with ultra large or specialty format films, your job is even more difficult. Thankfully, Ilford is here to help.
Harman technologies Inc. — the folks behind the manufacture of Ilford film — are opening their annual window during which photographers can order as much custom-manufactured specialty film as their hearts desire.
Film types to choose from include FP4+, HP5+, Ortho Plus and even Delta 100 Professional in specialist formats, with an additional 3 sizes now available.
Fortunately for exotic film shooters, you won’t be limited regarding the amount of custom-made specialty film you can order either. Ilford will wait to start manufacturing until after the window closes on June 28th. Once they have all the orders in, they’ll begin the process of fulfilling them at their factory in the UK, hoping to have the film in consumer’s hands by September.
