DP Paper on 120 roll for medium format camera – the swiftness of Polaroid with the nostalgic look of classic black-and-white pictures
About this project
Due to a steady decline in sales and customer usage, Kodak Alaris is discontinuing KODAK PROFESSIONAL BW400CN Film. Product should continue to be available in the market for up to six months, depending on demand.
We empathize with the Pro photographers and consumers who use and love this film, but given the significant minimum order quantity necessary to coat more product combined with the very small customer demand, it is a decision we have to make.
The ILFORD XP2 Super Single Use Camera gives the convenience of being able to have the film processed at any High Street photo-processing centre using C41 colour negative systems, with proof prints made on colour paper. These can either be close-to-neutral black and white prints, or colour toned monochrome prints, and are ideal for deciding which negatives to print on black and white paper.
The ILFORD HP5 Plus Single Use Camera is intended for processing at locations with standard black and white film processing and printing chemistry, resulting in true, real black and white prints that have a unique look as the images are made from silver.
These new high quality disposable cameras complete with Flash have a smart clean new look, and each camera is individually packaged with a Euro Hanger in the carton design to enhance display in dealer retail locations. UK Retail Price is expected to be in the region of £8.99 including VAT, excluding processing costs.
In the UK there is an additional option for a Process Paid version of the HP5 Plus camera. This comes packaged with a pre-paid envelope from ILFORD LAB DIRECT. Cameras returned in this envelope will have the film processed at the ILFORD Lab in the Cheshire factory, and will receive back a boxed set of 6×4 inch black and white prints. This option is expected to Retail at around £14.99.
Steven Brierley, Director of Sales and Marketing at HARMAN, says ‘We continue to be surprised at the number of requests we get for the retro style black and white film cameras. Many are from digital users who now want the look of real black and white prints from a film negative, especially when they go to events and parties.’
