    A pro pack is 5 rolls but 7 day shop in the UK will split packs so Ari could order (via me) 2 rolls 400 Portra NC 2 Rolls Fuji NPH and a roll of 800 portra.
    Have a play, see which emulsion he likes best.
    I'm happy to do that as I'll tag them onto an order I'm going to make this week-end.
    I'll post them to Crete and he can pay me later (he has an honest face) :-)

    I know as a photographer you sometimes want to try just 2-3 rolls of an emulsion before you get too deep.
    I'd be willing to ship to you as few rolls as you want to try.
    I'll buy the 5 rolls here in the UK then post them by normal mail; you pay me on receiving the film.
    Fuji 120 800 is £1.95 here, I'd have no trouble getting you a few mix and match rolls of 120.
    Might take a week or two to get your film but it'll probably be less than €20 or so for 5 films inc postage.

    Regards

    Thank you then and I apologize for the misunderstanding.
    When I have more than five euros in my pocket, I may take upon your order. Probably something like 20 or so rolls of Kodak Portra 400 NC.
    My photographic business is pretty much dead at the moment and I never
    know when I will need some color film, but its good to have around.
    That's my problem: its ok for an amateur to wait to get the film but for
    a professional, when a job lands that demands film, there can be no wait.
    And while I store the film in the fridge it get older and older and color is not
    resistant to age like B&W...

    the "tri-x" of colour is :

    slides:
    fuji provia 400x . one of the best general films, just for anything. colours are not exactly mute though not overly saturated and very well balanced, eassy for scanning too. also not exactly "gritty". so, i may call it my "hp5 color" but doesnt fit your description.
    kodak e200, if u push it to 400, results are great. contrasty (bold in luminocity) but without too much saturation. also wouldnot call it gritty, but still, with character.

    in negatives :
    have a look at fujis. 800z starts to show some "gritrty" character. can get bold (scanning/adjustment will help even more) colours are nicely saturated (not overly).
    fuji 400h , neutral and clean in colours, but not exactly "gritty".

    u want to scan? print in darkroom?

    Fuck.
    I've four rolls of Reala left and I have a photoshoot tomorrow
    with (another) bellydancer. Their costumes demand color!

    I am sure now I need a natural color 400 iso film for street
    and a 100 iso saturated color for studio.
    And there is not a single roll around to buy!

    I either have to bite the bullet and order horribly expensive
    film from Athens or stop shooting color for a month or so
    while I get film from Germany. I hope I find some in Belgium.
    I really do understand the people who have switched to digital.

    Btw, Vic, the film is developed in a local lab who also will make the prints,
    thankfully chemical ones. I can't develop or print my own.

    Film from the UK will take a lot less than a month to get to you.

    Ari I have ordered your film, it should be here next week (Thursday)
    I will mail it to you first class.
    If you need some quicker than that I have some Portra 800 and Fujicolor I can send on Tuesday, as tomorrow is a bank holiday.
    I talked to the post office and they say airmail takes 3 working days within Europe.
    Hope this helps.
