I may be spending three months in Florence, and I want to explore my photographic options. I am interested in finding out what "pro" shops and processing services are available there, and how prices compare to the U.S. I am also interested to know what, if any, chemical concentrates and powders I would be able to check. I use all liquid concentrates except for Hypo Clear. I imagine this would be a good time to switch to powdered chemicals, if I end up needing to bring them with me. However, if I can buy my normal liquid concentrates while there, I will just do that. I can also have things mailed to me, so that is an option. Has anyone from overseas had a good or bad experience ordering from Freestyle? Anything I need to know (fees, taxes, etc)? Also interested in learning how the Italian authorities are about carry on film. Ideally, I can head into town with nothing photographic but my cameras, and leave the same way; purchase all my film in the city, have the color processed there (hoping for a true "pro" lab with dip and dunk), process my own b/w there, and bring the unused film home in carry on baggage. I will probably bring my Canon FD SLRs and my Mamiya M645. Might bring a Retina IIa or Yashica Electro 35 as well. Sure would be great to bring the Sinar, but not feasible this trip. Thank you in advance.
