Ilford Photo: Keeping the Ultra Large Format Alive


Ilford Photo is long-known as an authority in black and white photography. And aside from its line of photographic papers, disposable cameras, and B&W films, did you know that Ilford also offers sheet film in more unusual sizes?

In fact, every year, HARMAN technology Limited — the manufacturers behind Ilford film – makes it a point to cater to the needs of those who dive into the world of ultra large format photography (and not to mention, other hard-to-find sizes like18cm x 24cm ) by manufacturing a custom amount of sheet film and specialty products directly proportional to the demand.

“It is vitally important for us to support users of large format sheet film, and other specialist film users. By amalgamating world-wide orders on an annual basis, it allows us to make a viable production of large format sheet film or custom sizes once a year, and providing the volumes are sufficient, we are happy to continue doing so.” — Steven Brierley, Director of Marketing, HARMAN technologies Limited
