    Anyone know of a camera shop/store in Dubrovnik Croatia selling Efke820 IR film, will be travelling there shortly and would love to be able to buy a stock of the stuff as it is made in Croatia.....MOPS

    It's a specialty item, I guess available only in the capital (Zagreb ) - and even there, there's only one store that I think has it available (in the fridge). It's not exactly an off-the-shelf item, even for a photo lab/store (and there aren't many selling ANY kind of film left).

    I'm not 100% sure, but I would be totally floored if you manage to get it in Dubrovnik - sorry.

    I guess that there aren't many stores in New York selling it, either :smile: - just to put things into perspective...

    Perhaps you can purchase in advance and have it delivered to Dubrovnik, to your hotel.

    The only photo store I've visited in Dubrovnik has very little film, mostly C41 colour, I don't remember seeing any B&W films at all. It's easier to buy EFKE films in England & Germany etc than in Croatia, same with Foma in the Czech Republic. Most EFKE film is made and exported.

    You'll find Dubrovnik a great city to photograph in and the people are very friendly, most speak excellent English, I'll be there again later in the year.

    Thanks guys for that less than optomistic news. I have enough B&W to carry me through while I'm over there, looking forward to it....Mops
