    Can anyone recommend online suppliers of photo chemicals and other supplies for Europe? The last time I ordered from Adorama I was slapped with a whopping customs charge that equalled 50% of the order. Others such as Jessops and Calumet seem to require an EU address for your credit card. I looked at Reteo Photographic last night and they had steep handling charges. Thanks for any ideas.

    Further thought suggests Speedibrew as their products as sent dry thereby reducing postage costs.
    http://www.speedibrews.free-online.co.uk/ but they don't have an online shop but Silverprint stock their products.

    I've used Monochrom in Germany several times, and have been very happy with them.

    Creative Monochrome is now called Arum Publishing.

    They do ship to international countries, but the rate is quite high. They don't use Royal Mail, but some courier service.

    I've paid upto 20 pounds for delivery. It depends on the weight. The service is very fast, both within the UK and to Holland.

    There's also http://www.moersch-photochemie.de/ - Wolfgang Moersch's chemicals are really wonderful. The "Carbon toner" is probably a classic sulfide/selenium toner like what Viradon used to be.
