    Any Powder Fixer sold online ?

    I have D76 , Small Paterson and Polypan F 50 ASA film in Leica. I havent got fixer and buying liquids costs horrible money for shipment. I need a fixer for that film in powdered form sold online and I did found photographers formulary requests 40 dollars shipment for 5 dollars postage fee for ABC pyro. I need cheap shipment also. Its impossible to buy chemicals for me here.

    Take your pick

    Freestyle and B&H in the USA is where I get all my chems. Macodirect and Fotoimpex in Germany. All have powder fixers from Kodak, Tetenal, and Foma; Freestyle also sells its own line of fixers while Fotoimpex also sells Calbe fixers. Do note that powder fixers are mostly sodium thiosulfate, not ammonium thiosulfate rapid types. Calbe might still make a version of Agfa 304, which is sodium thiosulfate with ammonium chloride as an accelerator.

    you might be able to find sodium thiosulfate where you live
    http://www.google.com/search?client=...rls=en&spell=1
    it comes in pellet crystals (rice)
    and is easily mixed into non-speed fixer fixer .. slow working and thorough ( its the original hypo fixer )
    here's a thread about how to mix it
    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/6...ate-fixer.html

    some say you can buy a lifetimes supply for like $50
    who knows maybe where you live it is as inexpensive and plentiful ..
    and you can get a lifetime supply for the equivalent of getting 1L packet shipped to you from b/h &c

    Thank you all , we call cloths whitining liquid as hypo. When you spill tea or coffee on the kitchen table , we use hypo as clean the coffee and make its pigments transparent.

    Is that what you are describing as hypo we use for that purpose ?

    I hope I am clear , its outside of my english .

    John , what do you advise ?

    "Hypo" is a common prefix for scientific names, including chemical names. Maybe you're thinking of sodium hypochlorite (chlorine bleach, swimming pool disinfectant).

    You definitely cannot use it for photographic fixing. You need a thiosulfate to fix film/paper, be it ammonium (rapid fix) or sodium (normal).
    See my work at my website CHRISTOPHER LANGE PHOTOGRAPHY

    or my snaps at my blog MINIMUM DENSITY
