Weight 10.9 lb. without the Horseman aluminum case you can see at around 2:30 into the video. The empty case weighs 15 lb. ...

Re: Kentmere Doomed

...Harmons factory is on a lease. A fairly short lease... I wouldn't call a 20-year lease (with 18 years remaining) short. Plenty of time to make other arrangements. ...tell me that you would be suprised to see Harman Technologies move the plant abroad!... I wouldn't be surprised to see Ilford's pl...

Re: Kentmere Doomed

Re: New Ebony camera??!!

It would be interesting to know how much it would cost to buy in the UK. 8) An email inquiry to the contact address at Ebony Camera's Web site hiromi@ebonycamera.com will elicit a prompt response from their English-speaking representative.

Retro Photographic Ltd have wholeplate film for sale on their website from around £12.50 for 10 sheets. Looks like they have at least two film speeds for sale.
