    For those with reasonable access to the west Country Focal Point will get 5litre containers of pretty well anything. Look up their website: www.focalpointphotographic.co.uk

    What a lousy website. Take too long looking at the front page and it bounces you to an inside page?

    Which one, or is that all of them?

    It shows you the News section after 10 seconds or so from the front page but the site menu remains on the left hand side so you do not lose any functionality. Besides, Silverprint's news is often quite interesting, including their attempts on using 50 year old Gevaluxe paper, how to convert the wooden box in which Rollei film comes into a pinhole camera and latest product info on Agfa etc, so I don't see a problem.

    Cheers, Bob.

    Eh, sorry...I'm crabby. I design sites for clients and I'd never do that unless a client asked for it and I failed to talk them out of it. From a usability standpoint I'm not a fan of that. I can click on "News" when and if I want to. If "News" is something everyone should be shown at a particular site, just put it up front. If I'm reading a page and it goes away without my input...that's an avoidable annoyance one can choose not to expose a potential customer to.

    Sorry for the pedantry.

    I can see how it can catch you off-guard the 1st time it does it, but I generally know what I am looking for when I go to the site and click the menu item I want long before it does the switch.

    My pet hate is sites with a Welcome page that you have to click on to get to the actual site - what is the point of that?! If it's in Flash, then 95% of the time, I'm straight out of there before it even finishes loading... Different hates for different folks

    Cheers, Bob.

    I'm guilty of that on one site, I confess. Though that marquee page could be used for pre-loading common images to your cache to speed subsequent page rendering, I'm not actually doing that... At sites like that, I usually just bookmark the next page. I can see how those marquees could be tiresome.

    I've just been looking at the UK sites for HP5+ in 10x8, Robert White appears to be the cheapest at £53.65 inc VAT and you can spend your money on all those other nice things they sell!
    I was supprised how many outlets actually sell sheet film, I usually buy roll film form 7dayshop tax free but they don't sell anything over 5x4, which is not supprising.

    Only a vague notion as I haven't been logging prices on the Silverprint site over the many months I have known of its existence but it seems to me to be slightly cheaper than before now its online. Reality or illusion?

    I don't think Silverprint have (wisely) ever tried to compete just on price, but rather on stock and availability as well, mainly for the London professional market. That is not to say that they are expensive, just that they didn't learn their craft in Tesco.
    Regards Dave.
