    Hi all, I am off to Sydney in September and think it might be better to buy my film there and, possibly, get it devd there to neg instead of putting it through all the xray palaver in the airports, there and back. Anybody suggest places there I could go? Thanks in advance....June:smile:

    There are a few shops in the city that may or may not have stock of the films you are after, such as Foto Riesel and Ted's Cameras but your best bet would be to call/email Vanbar Imaging and go pick up the film when you get here. It's a 15 minute bus ride from Town Hall.

    Vanbar Imaging (Camperdown, Sydney)
    http://www.vanbar.com.au/Alocation/
    tel: +61-2-95505833

    Use the following website to plan your bus ride;
    NSW State Transit Trip Planner;

    As for getting your black and white film developed while here, the best option for quality and service is;

    Blanco Negro
    http://www.blanconegro.com.au/
    44-54 Botany Rd,
    Alexandria, NSW, 2015
    Sydney, Australia
    Ph/Fx: +61-2-9698 4552

    ...and if you have any further questions it might be better to post your questions in the Australian APUG regional focus group;
    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum214/

    Also have a search there to see what others have posted... most likely you will find useful information relevant to your trip that has been asked previously.

    Stephen Frizza at the Lighthouse Lab in Bondi is a subscriber here and hand devs black and white film in the developer of your choice.

    You can pm or email him through here if you want to contact him.

    You may find that the price of film down in this part of the world is not too your liking, I would definately check your prices before you leave home
