Buying film and chemistry in Luxembourg
I have just moved to Luxembourg, and this may be a long shot, but I was wondering if there are any local online shops you would recommend for film and chemistry or any shops in nearby Belgium or Germany. I used to live in the UK and there were several good online shops around but I would like to keep the shipping costs down :-)

There's Grobet in Antwerp (www.grobet.be), but I usually order at fotoimpex Berlin.

In Brussels there is Photo Guy http://www.fotoguy.be/ (Nederlandstalig)
Concerning on-line shopping from Germany:
In Nederland heb jij dan nog

Foto Impex (DE), Phototec (DE) and Fotohuis Rovo (NL) are great all suppliers. In Holland there's also http://www.fotofilmfabriek.nl/ although they carry mostly Adox stuff.

You can get something in a pinch at Lecuit, but the prices will make you change your mind real quick...plus they usually are out of stock and have to order everything.
To get something real fast do the following:
- order at nordfoto.de (#1 for speed - unbelievable) or fotoimpex (also very fast)
- pay by credit card or bank transfer - if you do a bank transfer, make sure your bank does not play with your money for a day or two, but sends it right away (Euro transfers happen somewhere around 10 am)
-get your stuff on the morning of the second day
The expensive option: take a 2 hour train and go to Brussels to Photo Guy - has everything, in stock.

Euro-zone Euro transfers are time-scheduled??

I don't think so. My transfers from Luxembourg to Germany have usually taken 24 hours if done during working hours.

Best is to check with the bank what is the cutoff time, if there is any, and if it applies to transfers done online (faster than walking to the bank, filling out a form etc).
