    Vanbar was like that with Kodak Plus-X too, so now I reluctantly order it from the helpful folks at Freestyle...

    Kodak Australia definitely do not bring Plus-X into Australia, so that's not Vanbar's responsibility. I'm not sure of the situation with Ektar, it is available at some places in Sydney but who knows where they're getting it from.

    Whilst Vanbar is an extremely big supplier of most photographic consumables, there are some things they will not stock, seemingly sometimes without reason, other times with reason.

    They have some limited supplies of certain B&W film brands, which I believe is because they are the importer of other brands of B&W film, I could be wrong, but it looks that way.

    When Spotone left the scene, there was for a time, a dearth of this kind of product around. One day I was chatting to a saleswoman I knew well, when I mentioned that there was a replacement for this product.

    This was news to her, so with a minute or two searching the web, we found the replacement product, her reaction was very positive. On a later visit to the store I enquired how she had gotten on regarding the Spotone replacement. She looked glum and mentioned something along the lines of, "the supplier of that product to this country has a like line of B&W film products in their imported range, so no go!"

    Basically it can be politics, price, or just too hard.

    With the current value of the aussie dollar (80 odd cents to the dollar) this is definitely the case

    Freestyle ships worldwide, and they're definitely the closest Stateside source to Oz. I imagine ordering a brick or two of Ektar from them wouldn't break the bank, shipping-wise. It probably would come out to about the same or maybe a little cheaper than ordering it locally.

    Not the case, unfortunately. The basic shipping charge starts around $40 no matter what. It only gets economical if you buy a fair amount of stuff. Same with B&H.
