Subject: New Ilford film

New Ilford film

From: Miranda Martin <mkmartin>
Date: Friday, October 18, 1991
The New York Times reported that Ilford has created a black & white film
which is "basically a chromogenic film made up of dye instead of silver.
Images are formed of dye clouds rather than grains of silver, just as
they are when using color negative films." This means they can be
processed in a quickie photo lab, along with everyone's color snaps, and
presumably (?) that they'll self-destruct the same way. Any photo folks
out there have any words of wisdom on this stuff?
