Ultra large and custom film sizes now on order from Ilford Photo
UK black and white film manufacturer Harman Technology has announced that its annual large format and custom film ordering scheme is open from now until May 26th. The scheme allows users of cameras that take unusual film formats to order certain Ilford emulsions within a set window so the company can set aside factory time to bulk-produce formats it wouldn’t otherwise be able to make financially viable.
As was the case last year Ilford FP4 Plus, HP5 Plus and Delta 100 emulsions will be available to order in sheet sizes from 2.25 x 3.25in to 20 x 24in. Rolls are also on offer for 127 film and formats 9cm wide, as well as 50 foot rolls of 20in film. Not all emulsions can be ordered in all formats but most of the more popular formats are covered. 120 backing paper can be ordered in 100ft lengths.
Harman says there are minimum order quantities that need to be reached before manufacturing can go ahead, but in the case of the sheet films usually a single order of a box of 25 sheets is enough. Roll films though need between 2 and 15 orders to make them practical to cut.
The company lists retailers across the world with which orders can be placed and the sizes/emulsions on offer. Prices will need to be checked with those retailers. Shipping to distributors will begin in August 2017. For more information see the Ilford Photo website.
ILFORD PHOTO ULF, CUSTOM & SPECIALIST FILM MANUFACTURE 2017
Buoyed by ongoing global resurgence in photographic film use, HARMAN technology Limited is delighted to be offering film photographers the opportunity to place orders for a range of specialist film products and formats for the 12th consecutive year.
To enable this film photography revival, it is vital that a wide range of film formats are available including film for ultra large format and collectable cameras.
By consolidating orders HARMAN technology can supply products that would not normally be viable to manufacture.
“This program enables us to further support film photographers who use and value our conventional products” said Giles Branthwaite, Director of Sales and Marketing at Harman technology. “Through running the ULF program each year, we are able to satisfy the strong demand for specialist film formats. Whilst manufacture is not easy, we have been rewarded by high demand ensuring we will continue to address and care for this market.”
Films available for this year are ILFORD FP4 PLUS, HP5 PLUS, and DELTA 100 PROFESSIONAL. Not all films are available in all formats.

The options available reflect what has been asked for over the past 12 years. HARMAN technology is happy to consider any other size suggestions but do not guarantee to make them available.
For sheet sizes an order for just one single box can be made, but for roll sizes this is not possible due to potentially excessive waste. Please see the minimums and multiples required next to the appropriate roll size.
Orders must be placed with the listed ULF reseller partners no later than Friday 26th May.
The UK factory will start to ship orders to Distributors during August and end users should check with the local ULF reseller for expected arrival dates.
