    Hallo all,

    In amongst the threads of doom and gloom over product availablity, it's not all bad.

    Last week I recieved in the post a new catalogue from Firstcall (UK) - a huge print catalogue of their stock lines. Yes, there is digital stuff but the analogue items are first in the catalogue and there are loads and loads of them.

    The actual range of new items available was quite staggering, including a newly produced enlarger! For what is supposed to be a "dead" sector it is amazing that a whole darkroom can still be equipped with totally new products - which choices for most items. I spent a lovely few hours planning on spending all the money I don't have on stacks of new "toys".

    :munch:

    I recieved this as a previous customer, I don't know if it is available on request however I applaud the investment made on producing the catalogue.

    It is a good company with probably the biggest range of analogue equipment in the U.K. Not always the cheapest on all lines but then again no one supplier is and you have to understand that stocking a large range ties up money.

    Always worth a look if you are in the U.K. and looking for analogue equipment

    Firstcall have this interesting machine that can expose digi files onto photographic film. You send them a cd with your files and they send you back a 35mm cartridge that you must develop yourself. Initially it was just a B&W offering but I read that they now do it for colour. I flirted with digital during 2007 and I've got about 20 photos I wouldn't mind printing in the darkroom onto nice paper. One time I ought to try out the service and get them printed onto the most neutral colour film there is.
