'Cause bashing Ilford's GFS changes appears to be our new favourite pastime, here's a scan of another annoyance:
I am so glad I didn't mount this to my $70 piece of Plywerk. I've been living with the print on my viewing board for a week, wondering if it was right. Today some friends came over and one of them immediately said "what's that yellow rectangle"? I looked, and sure enough. GIANT YELLOW RECTANGLE.
It's from the sticker used to hold on the brown wrapping paper that keeps the roll tightly wound in the box. I'd opened a brand new roll for the print to ensure I didn't have any end-of-roll curl problems. Instead I got a giant yellow rectangle.
Sigh. At least the print had other issues, my fault, that meant reprinting anyway.
