Should you (or I) add www.pentaxusa.com under DSLRs (they've pretty much stopped making film cameras now I think)? And they also make great P&Ss (not surprisingly, that's what I have). edit - sorta never mind - they're under dslrs, just not P&S.
Ilford is now www.ilfordphoto.com (there might be other links for them, but that's their main page).
