    I've been looking to purchase some silver nitrate & other emulsion-making chemistry.

    JD Photochem seems to have really good prices; does anyone have any experience with them; how's there service, etc.?

    I have purchased all my photo chemicals from her since moving to Canada and can only recommend her. You just send her a list of the items you want, she gets back to you with the total, then you call her and pay by credit card. What I don't know is whether she ships across the border. Best, Markus

    I have had great service from the past and present owner. I am in Canada, so shipping is perhaps a bit easier. Many chemicals are difficult or impossible to ship to my remote northern location from the US or overseas.

    Cheers,

    I am a USA customer of JD Photochem (Claire Vrana). I have made several puchases from her and I highly recommend her. Fast, high quality, good prices and good packing/shipping.

    it's good.
    I ordered several stuff, and she is willing to do some investigation if you want chems that are not on the list. So recommended.

    I am in Melbourne, Australia htmlguru. I have placed 3 orders with JDPhotochem for all the specialised chemicals used for color negative processing. The service could not be better, the
    prices are OK too. Shipping cost to OZ are not.
