Default Rollei 400 IR shortage ???

I have just used up my last Rollei 400 Infrared 120 film.
Looking at my usual sites, 35mm seems to be in stock but 120 is scarce.
I found some at Analogue Wonderland in case any one else is after some.
Not sure if it a problem in supply or coincidence.
Cheers.

Might be a covid-19 related manufacturing issue? Don't really know - just guessing. Hopefully, any supply issue would clear up in the next few months - unless anyone knows differently.

Nat I can't directly help with useful info as I don't use Rollei film but I take it you have looked at all our sponsors. RKPhoto seems to keep stocks of the more exotic film stuff for instance

If no luck anywhere in the U.K. have a look at Fotoimpex in Germany.

Just checked the firstcall site and they list both 120 and 35mm as in stock

Just looked again at Firstcall. Still no 120, but they have 35mm and 5x4.

Cheers.

I have just looked at firstcall and they list it as in stock, just click on the 120 film and it takes you to the info page for the film and it is listed as in stock

Richard, Firstcall are confused. While the info. page is as you say, there is no "Add to Basket" button; and the page previous to that shows it as "Unavailable" when you hover.

Nat, Macodirect appear to have it. Nothing on its site to suggest it is out of stock

Michael, yes, you are right, I never looked that far, saw in stock, and just took that as right, I never look to add to basket as I don't shop on line, only by phone
