    Thanks for the quick reply Ian - I'll take a look at the Resourses section then.

    Many thanks.

    I notice that Harman Direct Positive Paper has been on "back order" for some time, here in the US. Is this a production problem or financial issues?

    I received notice from BHPhoto that 11x14 was back in stock so I think it is only a temporary condition. I just cut it to fit my other cameras.

    Wow. This stuff is going fast right now. I just checked and they are already out of stock.

    It must be awfully popular right now.

    Yeah - have used most of my stock of 4x5 and 8x10 so just went to order some more and all gone in uk - or seems to be. Have emailed Ilford direct to ask what the situation is. My plan is to make a 12x16 pinhole camera and use DPP - hmmm...plans on hold I guess

    Ilford has indicated that they are currently experiencing some technical difficulties with the Positive Direct paper and are working hard to overcome those issues. Unfortunately they have no current timeline regarding when they will be able to begin to restock the various vendors who supply the paper to us.

    I guess I'll just have to continue working with the Galaxy paper until Ilford gets things sorted out.

    This is their reply to my email:

    Thank you for your enquiry regarding the Direct Positive paper.

    We encountered some technical difficulties some time ago and have been working hard to rectify matters as quickly as possible to ensure that the product achieves the high standards of consistent performance we (and our customers) have come to expect from HARMAN.

    Regarding re-supply, we are sorry but we do no have a specific date to give to you but as soon as we do have any updates, we will add them to our website.
    Kind Regards,
