I just received both of these emulsions. They told me that the black and white is Lucky and the color is Kodak. The cassettes are pretty nice and heavy. They have Fukkatsu imprinted in them.
The Fukkatsu films are now available in the US from at least two dealers - see:-
and if you want to pay more for the same product:-
No sign of them in the UK yet unfortunately, but hopefully someone will have the initiative to stock them. Meanwhile back in the US Frugal Photographer apparently haven't woken up to the fact that new 110 films are available and all their site currently offers is long outdated stock.
Now if someone would spool some E-6 into 126, and make square mounts too.
After a wait since July, the lomography folks shipped the B&W I ordered. Thee "ORCA" flm is no longer the "First Edition" and now comes with backing paper. My darkroom is backed up so It will be a while until I get any results.
Apparently they quote a fifty buck charge on their web site, but actually charge less after they figure the shipping. No way to find out before you order what the charge is. They did not indicate how they ship.
Here is what I replied to them.
"Thats nice, so the fee is somewhere up to 50 bucks I guess. I go to B&H and they tell me to the penny. I can't afford to risk that the cost will be 50 bucks to buy a roll of film or a box of paper. I have put things in the cart on your site many times only to bail out as I could not get any assurance of reasonable shipping. "
"Folks like myself who order a lot from the US have to guard for what I call the UPS scam. UPS will clear a shipment and charge about 30-50 dollars (Plus the actual Tax and Duty of course) to do so, and teh driver collects this COD with no appeal. So I have to have assurance that anything I buy will not come UPS."
"I think the Post was about a roll of 110 size film. B&H will get that here within the week for $8.53 plus sales tax. "
