    Some Fuji products aren't available in every country, notably B&W papers (possibly by agreement as they are probably outsourced).

    It's more important to have a list of film suppliers & types & sizes available outside the main North American & European markets so people travelling can source film while away.

    I spent two days trying to get Tmax films in Santiago, Chile, a large capital city, in the end I bought Ilford, I looked again in Lima, Peru, I doubt there was any LF film at all. I did ask Simon Galley if Ilford could put something on the Ilford website, but the issue is getting information from local importers/distributors.

    It would be great to just go online Ilford, Kodak & Fuji and look up your nearest stockist and what they sold, 35mm 120 and LF by category and then exact film type.

    The film manufacturers are behind the times in regard to internet marketing and its advantages.
    Items for sale or trade at www.Camera35.com
