    At the top of my wish list would be Efke 25 8x10, Ilford 8x10 Multigrade FB and Rodinal. I can't get the Efke or the Rodinal from my local "pro" store and it takes a week or more to get 8x10 Ilford FB from Melbourne through them. I wish you all the best Andrew, and I will buy from you if you go ahead with this.
    cheers
    Mike

    Efke 25 seems to be quite a popular one - and Rodinal/Adonal/One Shot developer. It's a bit hard to come by in these parts.

    I'm also working on an inhouse formula of compensating developer to compliment the more commonly available products. Will be testing this in the coming weeks and hopefully selling as a packed powder.

    Andrew, I know more than a few people in both Malaysia and Indonesia who might also be interested. Especially friends in Jakarta. Film and chemicals in general.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    That will be no problem. Shipping from Australia is quite reasonably priced. In contrast to shipping from the USA, Approximately 50% less than converted US dollar shipping amounts for the same products from large online retailers.

    Some chemicals will pose no problem and can be sent by Airmail, others might have to be sent via surface mail - about 3 weeks to Indonesia or Malaysia.
    Bleach and large containers of liquid would be in this category.

    Mick.
    I also mix up my own and would be looking for raw chemicals.
    At the moment I am in the UK and am very happy buying from Silverprint & (lately also) AG Photographic.
    We are planning to sell up and move to QLD this year (flat already up for sale) though and having already been in a mild panic about the cost of film in Oz (I was thinking to bring a couple of hundred reels with me) I would love to support a business such as you are proposing.
    When I get there that is...

    Whereabouts in Queensland are you considering a move to?

    I'll happily help you out with whatever you need

    Also, i'm investigating a large range of FB papers at the moment & also instant films. Will have more news soon

    how about arista premium from freestyle?? It's apparently repackaged tri-x as im sure you know.

    I havent seen it for sale anywhere except freestyle, but at $2 a roll for 35mm, you could be buying bulk amounts and selling them cheap and still make a profit.

    Hell, if I knew it was being done right, I'd buy it in blank canisters loaded from 100 foot long bulk rolls. there's gotta be a profit made there for sure

    Mate, I'd be interested, and if Malaysians can buy from you then surely Kiwis can too!

    I want Velvia and Provia and ACROS too. At more sensible prices than a $7 to $9 difference between one dealer and the next.
    *throws hissy fit*
    That does it. I must get on to cheapshots_au; the much-vaunted pro-dealer thinks I'm a niche commodity with pockets lined of gold ducats. Wrong-g-g-g-g-g.

    If i can buy it for a price which enables me to resell at a competitive price, i'll get it in.

    I am running into a brick wall trying to buy bulk Fuji products. Fuji Australia are not interested.

    Everything else is looking good. Oriental Seagull Fiber & Resin papers are going to be a key line. I'm going to try and get their RA-4 B&W too
