we all knew it was coming, but still it is sad news to learn that ilford is preparing to sell off (best case) or close (probable case) their film production business. i've used/liked delta 400/100 a lot over the last 1-2 years, even a fair deal of xp2 which i think is the best c-41 mono film out there with wonderful latitude. agfa announced last week that they are doing the same, so soon enough we'll be left with kodak and fuji. could be worse, right?!
