HARMAN technology Limited Marketing Director Howard Hopwood announced
“ILFORD SFX 200 is a great film that allows film photographers an even more expressive outlet for their creativity. It has a loyal following in many markets and is used for a huge range of applications, architectural photography being one of the most popular.
For HARMAN technology this finally completes the task of returning to its range the specialist products which were discontinued during the previous administration of ILFORD Imaging UK Limited. It is a further commitment from HARMAN technology to provide creative photographers and printers around the world with the largest range of quality analogue monochrome photography products.”
