    I'll be placing an order in the next week or two and it would be nice to have someone jump in to ease the postage costs. Who's in?

    I tempted, even though I just got a delivery in at the end of last month.

    Would be after some IR film in both 120 and 135. Howmuch, well, I gotta do the math still.

    Will get a note off to you by the end of the week. i could send you up a prepaid envelope to cover my postage back to me with your print exchange parcel that will be on its way soon.

    A lot can happen to the dollar before next Wednesday, hope it is in our favour. I will be seeking an advance from the financial controller in order to meet the costs :blink:.

    I would definitely be interested in chipping in with the order. Need to get some short dated legacy pro film before I go on a trip next month. I guess the only caveat would be that since I'm leaving at the start of september maybe a group order wouldn't be shipped and dished out by then?

    It takes days to get the deliveries. We'll see what we can do.

    I got some of that Legacy Pro and it's now out of date.

    I may very well jump on board too. Just a point of interest, last time I was setting up a group Freestyle order someone suggested I look at B&H, films were cheaper again (for big boxes of FP4 in 4x5 at least) and postage came up about $20USD cheaper as well

    ...only really good if you (and everyone else) are buying the big brands...

    Steve, I'll check into it. I did have in mind the re-branded films, but also some Portra and Fuji.

    I'm in for an order. Either BH or freestyle would work for me.

    Looks like a bigger fridge is in order. I got a 380 litre one for sale if you want to drive to Melbourne to collect...


    I also look at the B&H rates but infortunately for me with this btach of film B&H either do not have or are not as competitive on price for what they do stock.

    OK my order,
    1 5roll pack of 120 Rollie IR film #8104005 = US$43.99
    3 2roll pack of 135 Rollie IR film #81040122 = US$32.37
    4 rolls of 120 Ilford Delta3200 film #1921535 = US$23.56
    5 rolls of 135 ADOX CHS25 film #126236 = US$27.45

    Thanks

    Guys, it won't be from B&H this time. I'm looking at the Freestyle brands.

    Whoops, really sorry guys but I'm actually gonna have to pull out. It seems I can't actually afford to buy any film at least for the next 4 weeks.
    But there's enough of you to get one happening.

    Sorry again guys :sad:

    Hi all, I will close off the orders. I have hit the $500+ mark inc shipping.

    There is mine, NDP_2010, Green_Blue, and Mick8585.

    Two of the items from NDP_2010 are low stock, so I have sent an email checking stock levels. When I get the feedback I will if needed adjust the orders.


    I will tally up and email you all with a final cost and send you my direct deposit bank details. I hope that you all have your email details entered in APUG...
