ILFORD Ilfocolor Single Use Camera Retro Edition
We’ve always wondered if Ilford would re-introduce their IlfordColor color negative films from the 1960’s, especially with how Kodak and Fuji unable to fulfill the surging demands for their color films lately. Lo-and-behold to everyone’s surprise, Ilford is actually introducing this new ILFORD Ilfocolor Single Use Camera Retro Edition with their own color film (we can only assume, can we?) !
The camera itself looks to be the same ones that many other manufacturers have on the market now (Lomography, Ilford b/w camera just to name a few), but this one is loaded with the new Ilfocolor film.
