    I wonder if I've ever seen an Ilfochrome.

    Those prices are teetering on possible if I restrict other purchases for a while.

    Crikey!!!
    That is not cheap!!!
    Still want to play with it though....
    Found some out of date paper at a local photo shop and asked about chems, they basically said I was dreaming. Told me I was wasting my time wanting to do RA4 too...
    Just bought 7 or 8 20" rolls of RA4 paper cheap from a pro lab that shut down but they only had replenish stuff and didn't know where to get home use stuff.
    Nobody around here seems to think home colour printing is worth the bother :-(

    With Ilfochrome, would I have issues getting it shipped?

    Theoretically it cannot travel by air but there's a reason I linked that particular store...

    Just been doing a bit of searching and it seems Ilford P30 comes up in the catalogue of Vanbar...so it looks like it may be available in Aus after all!

    Mmmm, let me know when you do find some HINT: Check the Fuji India website and give them a call or send them an email. I've been trying to email them for a while but never get a response.

    Derwent, I'll buy some paper off you if you can get your hands on some of the above chemicals.

    Playing around with Ilfochrome as a home user is wasteful, very costly, uneconomical and unless you have advanced skills in contrast masking, the results will be substandard and disappointing: masking is essential and requires astute judgement. The big doyens of Ilfochrome in Australia have now closed shop: it is an exacting, expensive, unrewarding (cost of supplies and processing exceeds income) and unforgiving set up. Personally I'm glad I've moved on from it and now into digital. Is that a sin? No. I think most people should skill up for the future and not continue chasing pony tails.

    AFAIK, the chems travel by sea freight, necessarily for their volatility. And sea freight is s..........l..............o..............w........ .... ! Vanbar ships what chems they have by road or you pick them up.

    Aside from cost, which increases with nauseating regularity, you would have very serious issues with disposing of the used chems, particularly the extremely noxious and harmful bleach. Not something I'd like to get wrong in an environmentally-astute place like Tassie!
