    I'm finally on holiday, going to Lisbon and Porto, does anyone know a good source for B&W films in Lisbon or Porto?
    Just in case I'm standing in the rain with my Efke 50 and Pan F Plus.
    Colour? We can always use an airbrush later...

    I'll be glad to help you but I'll need to know if you're asking about roll film 35mm /120 or sheet film ?

    Kind regards from Portugal

    I decided to travel light, so it will be 35 mm.

    Dr Kollig,

    While not Portugese but still from Iberia, I was very fond of Negra films from Spain. When I was still living in London a colleague used especially imported Negra 35mm films and the results were excellent. For some time Jessop in England sold rebadged Negra as its own "Pan 100". I finished the last of the small batch I brought from England years ago and it was very satisfactory indeed. I think a little while ago the formula for this film was changed, and I really have no idea if Negra is still making it.

    You can try www.colorfoto.pt . There you can find the stores addresses in Lisbon.
    Efke is very difficult or impossible to find in Portugal. I suppose that in 35 mm you'll have no problem in finding both IIlford and Kodak films in many places including department stores as FNAC.

    Medium and large format is other matter ! I order Efke and lford sheet film from Austria and UK !

    I hope this helps.

    Regards

    Thanks for the info.
    Last year when I was in Scotland I had the impression Jessops B&W film was Tura, which is Agfa material. Right now I use Ilford Pan 100 and 400 as 30 m rolls in bought in Slovenija, just feels like FP4+ and HP5+, the same developing times and negatives just print the same. I've only seen these Ilford Pan 100/400 films in east europe, but never in GB or Germany.
    Two weeks ago I tested some outdated east german film Orwo NP 20, you get the grain of 400 Speed films at a speed of 80-100 ASA. So I rather stick to Efke 25 or 50 I bring with me, very fine grain but not so high resolution. I use a developer I found on the site unblinkingeye, the formula of Perfektion XR-1, I can use 100 ASA on Efke 25 and 200-250 on Efke 50/Ilford Pan F+, developing 15 mins at 20°C. (Alright, I'm not famous for shadow details)javascript:emoticon(':whistle:')

    A good source for Efke films is www.fotoimpex.de in Berlin, should be cheaper than Lotus view Camera, their Classic Brand seems to be Forte. Everytime I'm in Berlin I pay them a visit for Photopaper or some left over Orwo/Calbe chemicals.
    I never really liked the new Kodak 3200, but in Calbe A 49 results are pretty good, the fine grain allows at least some resolution. (Diluted 1:2, 30 mins).
    Please notice Calbe is still alife and doing pretty well with their chemicals, developers etc. still the same formula, which was sold under the brand Orwo in GDR. Fotoimpex sometimes have old chemicals with the old Orwo logo on sale but also stocks fresh Calbe chemicals.

    Kind regards,

    Just returned from Portugal. I went to Colorfoto in Lisboa and picked up Agfa FB paper, which was cheaper than Agfa RC paper! Plus a bottle of Rodinal, just in case... The paper was in stock, Rodinal was in the next day. Great service and price.
    No trace of spanish B&W films, just Agfa, Kodak, Ilford.

    Regards,
