    I don't live in Australia right now, but when I do, I'll make sure I order some stuff from you. The very best of luck to you.

    I'm in AU but I get my film from ag-photographic in the UK. Postage costs suck, but I think you'll have to do better than their pricing if you want to get much business from APUGers. If you can though, I would be all over it.

    Hi all!

    Doing a quick feasibility analysis here.. For a small set of items I have the following prices:



    Price in last column would be actual sale price, excluding shipping. Shipping would be $4.50 for first item, and 25c for every extra roll.

    Would like some feedback as to whether these prices are good or still too pricey compared to what you may be shopping at/with right now. Thanks!

    I'd buy plus-x at that price for starters - normally I wouldn't buy 135 film, but I inadvertently bought an OM4T (see other thread) a few days ago, and will have to feed it... Ektar 100 (in 135 & 120) looks entirely reasonable to me too, especially in small quantities where the shipping from the US would make prices from there less attractive.

    I wish you the very best in your 135 & 120 film/camera endeavors.
    Looking forward to visiting the shop from time to time!
    Speaking to two different people within the photographic industry today
    (Melbourne, Australia) they seem to think 120 format is still very much alive & well..

    Thanks Marc & panoman!
    So what does everyone here shoot more of? 135.. 120.. 4x5.. or?

    We've secured a small shipment of the list above and should have it listed in about 1-2 weeks time we'll see how it goes.
    Ilford prices really have increased quite a fair bit I must say.

    You should buy Freestyle's re-lablelled films to save dough.
    Check out the Arista braned films there.

    Great.
    I have bookmarked the site.
    Prices seem reasonable compared to other Aus online sellers incl @bay stores.

    Yeah, +1 for Arista. Also maybe Efke/Adox films too.
    Main stream films like Kodak, Fuji and Ilford are quite easy to get at good prices. However, those not-so-common brands are not so.
