spacecadet Posted April 13, 2020 Share Posted April 13, 2020 1 minute ago, Allan Bell said: It was strange that Ciba withdrew the rights for Ilford to use their name as they eventually became the owners of Ilford. Ciba-Geigy bought Ilford in 1969. The name had to change when they sold Ilford in 1992. A very good history of Ilford here https://www.photomemorabilia.co.uk/Ilford/Cibachrome.html#anchorCiba19 Anyone else remember Agfachrome Speed? It was a short-lived contrasty reversal dye-diffusion material with a single-bath process. A 10x8 sheet cost about £2 all in so you had to be careful with it. I couldn't generally afford to use it for my own images but used to make prints for astrophotographers- the high contrast suited astronomical images.
