    I've been looking, but can't seem to see any leaping out.

    I know it has only just been released, but anyone know where I can obtain some?

    THanks

    An inquiry here should get you that info:

    http://choose-film.com/

    It's a Fuji-UK sponsored site and they've several times answered queries similar to yours.

    Since April of this year when the film first became available, I have been ordering RVP50 from Megaperls based in Japan.

    http://www.unicircuits.com/shop/

    It is run by a guy called Dirk Rösler who has been a delight to deal with. The last batch of 5x4" Quickloads I received here in London within 5 days of ordering and at a price that was cheaper than I used to buy RVP for in the UK. The postage is obviously more expensive but if you are ordering a few boxes/rolls it makes little difference overall.

    Cheers,
    Ed

    I got the new Velvia 8x10 film as well. Had shot 30 sheets in recent trip to Australia. Very fine grain and vivid colour.

    You can get it most cheaply, likely, from www.7dayshop.com. They're in Guernsey, and so don't charge VAT. They ship very quickly, and offer £3.85 shipping, no matter the size of the order. I use 'em all the time--their processing is first-class, too: dip & dunk, rapid turnaround (< 1 week by mail) and very cheap, especially if you buy the 10-pack of vouchers.
