    PCL - Newton store ex 'labtec' is my choice for proce$$ing... They should have film, or can get it in - but of not try Photo Warehou$e or the grumps at Auckland Camera ($)

    Not shure that you will get such a fast film easily in NZ, but I could be wrong, have never tried myself. May I ask what you plan to use it for?

    Im sorry i think im confused how much does it cost to get film processed in NZ? surely not $15 a sheet for 4x5" and surely not $20 dollars a roll for roll film cut and sleeve? that's almost triple the cost here in Australia! can someone clarify?

    Ilford Delta 3200 was in stock last time I was in Photo Warehouse in Grey Lynn.
    Mamiya 645 Super | Nikon F4/F100/FM2n | Minolta Maxxum 9/Dynax 7/X-700/X-500/XD7/SRT-101 | Pentax Spotmatic | Canonet QL 19 (GII) | and a whole bunch of glass

    yes i did notice but im still in shock, doesn't this just kill the desire for people to use the material there? I mean if the price dropped more people might shoot on it and they would make more money from more film processing...etc a see saw so to speak.... hmm its none of my business. but still WOW!!!

    My impression when I was in Auckland last year is that amateur and tourist photography is 99.99999% digital. I think only a few pros are still using film in any volume. I attended a meeting of the Auckland Photographic Society and all of the work shown was digital, there was no discussion of film at all!

    I think small markets like New Zealand have a problem in when once the tourist film market collapsed, distribution collapsed along with it, so both supply and demand are decreasing, leading to an increase in prices. The increase in prices, as a previous poster mentioned, will only result in less film use.
