    Hi Melbournians,

    I tried to call Dan at the Photographic Warehouse and a recorded message kept saying that the number couldn't be connected.

    Does anybody know if he is still in business or what?:confused:

    I've only bought a couple of things from them and the last time was probably a bit more than a year ago, so I can't help you much.

    Actually, cancel that. I think I'm getting the name mixed up with a place here in Melbourne. Sorry.

    Yes, Peter, I realised that later. But I was talking about a place in the inner northern suburbs. Can't remember the name of it now.

    I ran into Dan who owns Photographic warehouse on 5 Nicholson St Bentleigh the other day. He never mentioned anything to me.

    No it didn't begin with the "d" word.

    Could the place you are thinking of be run by a fella called Ben Boardman?

    He bought a my Durst RCP20 print processor of me when RA4 came out and I had switched to a brand new Durst Printo.

    I know he was going to convert it to RA4 using other machines for spare parts and/or gears/chains.

    He was located in the northern suburbs, but I believe he is now interstate.

    Mick.

    Mick,

    It is Dan Cadariu of Bentleigh I was talking of (you may remember I got on to him through you about 18 months ago, when I was visiting Melbourne?).

    I have tried to 'phone him a couple of times during the past week, but Telstra keeps responding with a recorded message that his landline number can't be connected. I'll try again using his mobile.

    Actually, I just rang him on his mobile and, although he is still trading, he has closed the Bentleigh premises.

    It's all good! :smile:

    Thanks anyway, one and all. :smile:

    WoW well thats a sad blow for analog users as Dan's store had reasonable prices & good variety. Is he doing an Ebay or web site store ?

    I don't know, I simply placed an "order" to him by mobile and he said he'd get back.:unsure:

    I visited the shop front in Bentleigh(near the station) three weeks ago but it was deserted. I was after a 4x5 enlarger.
    I noticed the owners were at the earlier camera market in Box Hill, but I did not talk to them.

    If you're still after a 4x5, Photo Resources in Fitzroy have half a dozen or so Durst 4x5's as well as a few other types. Some are pretty tired. They bought all the RMIT gear when they shut down their darkrooms. I picked up a very nice Saunders 20 x 24 four blade easel dirt cheap.
