    Melbourne, Australia Freestyle Group Order

    Hi all,
    I'm putting an order in with Freestyle some time within the next week or so and was wondering if anyone needed anything? I'm happy to do the ordering and deliver to Frankston, Flinders Street Station, Melbourne or Queenscliff depending on your location.

    I'd like to have my order in next Friday (13th... it's my lucky day! ) at the latest, but it's no real drama to hold out a little longer if more time is needed to organise shopping lists and money.

    Cheers,
    Molli

    I'm not in any particular rush, guys. I've been putting off doing an order for months and mostly just need to get my 120 negatives into some Printfile sleeves and out of the plastic document sleeves they're currently residing in.

    So, just let me know what you're after and we'll work out the logistics from there.

    Oh, and James, I'm happy to find a halfway point to get anything you want to you. I'm thinking Berwick, perhaps, but if there's somewhere more convenient for you, just yell! I'm down on the Mornington Peninsula so I just rattled off a list of places that public transport will take me (without me getting lost amongst the highways and byways of the cities!)

    How does the price for the 120 sleeves at Vanbar compare to importing them? I use them, and find them okay.

    My Velvia stocks are okay at the moment, but I'll add some if it helps your costs.

    A 100 pack of sleeves for medium format is $98.63 at Vanbar. They're $22.99 at Freestyle and they're a) Printfile and b) I can get them in three strips of four. Neither of those things are the case with the Vanbar ones. I think B&H has them a little cheaper, but the shipping wound up being more and they didn't stock the paper I wanted, so Freestyle it is


    As for helping me out with costs, right now I can keep my order under $150 by a whopping 45c! That means I can use FIMS which is about $40 cheaper for shipping. Keeping it under that limit, however, meant ordering less than I really want to. I'd rather try and get as much as I can afford at one time so I don't have to do this again for a while! Of course, an endless supply of affordable paper would be brilliant, but it's not going to happen.

    That being said, if no one needs anything, I'll just stick to my slightly slimmed down order. I just thought they're might be others about who might want to try and get some materials with a somewhat defrayed shipping cost


    Added: I just saw the V-Tec 120 Sleeves (4 strips of 3 frames) $9.90 for a 25pk. So, just under forty dollars for 100. Not bad at all... just not quite the format I'm after this time around.

    98.63 AUD for SLEEVES?!?! That is straight up robbery.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Thanks, Shane, that's not off topic for me at all! Any source of darkroom goodies that I can get locally without having to sell a kidney is wonderful to know about! I actually bought some paper off them last year via their ebay store when they had a bit of a clearance. They were really lovely to deal with and very helpful in terms of posting things to me which were listed as pick up only.
