Tim Rudman Reports

“I saw that the Ilford stand at the ‘Focus on Imaging’ show in the UK this month was a buzz of activity once again. Film sales are up and although sales of RC papers are down, sales of fibre-based papers are up – possibly because more people are making contact proofs on their scanners but are becoming more quality conscious and switching to fibre for print making. Excellent news.
“Pinhole camera sales are apparently very buoyant too. Supplies of the 4×5 exceeded supply in 2012 and the Titan 8×10 looks set to be equally popular – along with B&W single use cameras and a new Obscura pinhole camera.”
