    Are you thinking of Fletcher's? They had a large window full of second hand cameras. Also a back room with several fridges that stocked every film available in Australia. They went bust in 2005 & Ted's now have that shop. No second hand cameras & a modest selection of traditional materials up the back.

    I do and I recall amongst other interesting items a Toyo 8x10 and a Rolleiflex in the window at a time when the digital bogeyman was just stretching his wings (it was Fletcher's BTW).

    Foto Reisel is run by some chain these days, but they are always way over priced for me.

    yes Fletcher's .. that's it! knew my description was a bit off. i remember buying tri-x 120 there for 6.50 aud. and a block further up was the other photo store in that little mall area past McDonalds. they would stock all the Agfa stuff.

    That other photo store was Ted's. They were very good for Agfa stuff, I bought a lot of Precisa there for cross processing. When Fletchers closed they took over the big shop & are there still.

    Wow. I must ask my local wallopers what they might have gathering dust in one of those disused cells.

    The Historical Houses Trust have had a couple of exhibitions made up of prints from plates and LF negs which were found in some obscure NSW Police Service storeage.

    The police used to have a lot of good stuff. My Ilford 500 head, in terrific condition, came out of a London police station.

    TMH,
    If you're still looking for ideas with those gift vouchers you might consider selling them to someone who's into what Ted has to sell. I basically did a sort of trade with my mum for a gift voucher my sister had sent me. I bought mum something she wanted from that store, she gave me some cash for it.... then I went to my local antique store and picked myself up a Yashica Electro 35 GSN
    If you've no one about with an interest, can vouchers be sold online? Perhaps to someone on DPUG?

    Molli, where have you been? You haven't posted for such a long time, and I thought you'd given us up. It's good to see you back.

    Thank you! Believe me, I would NEVER give you up! Aside from taking a tumble out of the Faraway Tree, I've had the added embarrassment of running out of film, breaking my camera and running out of money for little things like rent, bills and an internet connection. Trust me, under the circumstances, my company was definitely NOT something you'd have wanted inflicted on you.
    Being the first 'perky' sort of day I've had in...um... a while, I decided to remedy a few things. I managed to fix my camera myself (free, oh joy!), get the net connected....... and land in the APUG forums where I promptly began the process of buying a new lens. (Yes, this is what the penniless should do the second their rent is paid!)
    I've bought the occasional roll of cheap Fuji colour film and devved it in B&W chems, but I can only scan those, no darkroom work. I've missed that (and I HAVE to give myself a reason to leave the house). So, in another month or so, B&W film will be bought/borrowed/begged/grovelled/pimp-out-my-sister for
    Oh, and another reason that I've spared you is that I'm blathering even worse than I did last year...
    but I have missed you guys tremendously and I do apologise for falling off the edge of the world. Will try to do better, promise!

    (Please, please, don't let me hijack a thread again... keep the jacket with the octopus arms handy, okay?)

    Now, more importantly, how have you all been?
