    1. yeah, it’s pretty exciting knowing that there is a new print product coming from one of the all time best companies.

      I know a lot of darkroom workers anxious for the Ilford Mukltigrade 300 Art paper

    1. Agreed that Ilford deserves our support.

      They’ve gone through changes in recent years, but are obviously committed to the medium we all love.

      Fuji had been reasserting their determination as well, even though their sales were declining. Had you heard something to the contrary, Edward? I admit I haven’t been following Fuji of late.
