    Where to buy Kodak HC110 in Australia

    Hi,

    Hope someone can help.

    I have a friend in Sydney who is having trouble finding the Kodak developer HC110.

    Can anyone on APUG offer advice on where to purchase it in Australia?

    Thanks From,
    E.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Les Porter is an excellent source of photographic supplies. I have purchased from him in the past. Great friendly service.

    Unfortunately I don't think he has any Kodak products at the moment. These are the brands he stocks.

    * FOTOSPEED
    * LEGEND
    * AGFA
    * CANON/ILFORD
    * EPSON LIST
    * FUJIFILM
    * ILFORD
    * KENTMERE

    Cheers,
    Emulsion.

    It's always worth ringing Les Porter and having a chat. He often has stuff that doesn't appear on his web price lists.

    Six months ago it was reported as being still in stock at Ted's Camera Store in Brisbane but Kodak (Australia) have apparently stopped importing it and so it will eventually become unobtainable. Trying to import small quantities of liquid chemicals is near impossible, so I wouldn't get too excited by the fact it's still available in the USA.
    You could try Madsens in Wollongong, but best to ring them - their website is a disaster at the moment.

    ^ Definitely not in stock at Ted's in Brisbane now, D76 and T-max Dev is all they have had lately.

    I've had trouble finding HC110 in Australia, too. You might want to consider Ilfotec LC29, which is meant to be similar to HC110, except that it is pre-diluted. I think Vanbar usually has it in stock.

    The direct Ilford equivalent is Ilfotec HC, but that seems pretty hard to find in Australia as well.

    Is there some chemical in it that makes it difficult to obtain in Australia now? Can one not just import it themselves directly? I highly recommend just using powdered xtol or d-76 if you can't get it.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Thanks for all the helpful replies, it sounds like HC110 is no longer available in OZ!

    My friend uses litres of the stuff so unfortunately the odd bottle won't help him much.

    I think he will have to switch to another developer. He has been using D-76 lately and having mixed success.

    Thanks from,
    Emulsion.
