    Hi all,

    I've recently moved to Perth and am wondering where people here buy their film and development supplies. I'm in Northbridge so know about PRA and CES but was wondering if there are other places, particularly cheaper other places!

    Mostly I'm after B&W films (120 and 135), paper, D76, Rodinal, rapid fixer, etc.

    Also if anyone in Australia has figured out a way to order from 7dayshop, please let me know! Given that the price differential is nearly 2x, I'm thinking it might be worth bribing someone trustworthy in the UK to forward a big order over here.

    While I haven't found any more film vendors and have bought film from both PRA and CES, I can recommend Fitzgerald's in North Perth for E-6 processing. Cheapest source of film I've found so far seems to be eBay and I think some people in Adelaide were planning on a group buy from ag-photographic in the UK - they're a great deal for films and maybe even papers (including shipping!) if you buy a big lot.

    I buy film (and sometimes paper and other bits and pieces) from B&H in New York every now and then. Once your order reaches a certain point, UPS shipping (which only takes a few days) is cheaper than US postal service. Works out much cheaper than buying from anywhere in Australia. Even more so if a couple of you do an order together and split the postage.
