    Plug: Need 100' spools of Acros? How about Artdol?

    My buddy Dirk in Japan has decided to set up a little web shop for folks seeking film from Japan that you just can't get over here in the U.S. (duh, I should have bought some when I was there last m'self...)

    You might suggest that he add films available in Fuji Quickchange format. I think Badger Graphic might carry them, but it wouldn't hurt to have a few suppliers out there. Robert White had them for a while, but I think they stopped carrying them.

    Fuji Quickchange is a modern 8-shot Grafmatic-type holder. It takes pre-loaded cartridges, but the septums can be reloaded with any film. There are detailed instructions on reloading at f32.net.

    David,
    Good suggestion. The Fuji Quickchange and cartridges are available at Photo Habitat in NYC. Ray and Walter, the owners, are great guys.

    bjorke,
    Great to see a source for Acros in 8x10 again, since Badger dropped it. It would be beneficial for your friend to accept credit cards. There are a number of us who won't use Paypal.

    Ask him! He probably would do it. I'll ask too, but there's no way to convince a marchant of anything like shaking money at him

    Thanks, Tom. I'm actually pretty well supplied with Grafmatics, but for a while I was considering Quickchange, and it's good to see the system out there.

    Errr, hi everybody... I am the guy with the Web Shop that Kevin kindly referred to (check's in the post mate ;-).

    Thanks for your interest everyone. I have just started up this month and while I have some good response and orders already, I am working all the kinks out. Credit card payments is one of them. Others are more products, currently looking into some Konica films which are cheap and good quality, and also some more odd formats like 5x7 which I had some requests for.

    Not sure about the QuickLoads. They are usually widely available in the rest of the world, and I cannot compete with those prices. And in a way I would like to support single sheet film availability for the people using holders. Unless QuickChange is yet another format, but I have never come across it. But then I am new to LF, so I appreciate all information.

    QuickChange is different from QuickLoad. QuickLoad is film in envelopes. QuickChange is film in a cartridge with 8 film septums where you can shuffle through them at about 1 fps once you get the hang of it (at least that's true of Grafmatics--as I say, I haven't used QuickChange myself, but I think it's great that it exists as a modern Grafmatic-style filmholder). Here's the article on f:32.net--

    Are you sure about this? There seems to be evidence that they manufacture the emulsion of the newish C41 B&W film for Fuji, or at least co-operated in it's development, but as to Neopan 400 and the rest I thought they were made by Fuji in Japan (as the boxes say). I've only used Neopan 400 in the past but it never struck me as being anything like HP5 in processing or results.

    Any chance of getting Velvia 100 in 120 or 220 sizes? Also, does the Acros 4x5 contain the same hole in the corner as the QuickLoad version?
