    SE Michigan darkroom supplies?

    Can anyone suggest a good place in South-East Michigan for buying darkroom supplies and paraphernalia (e.g., trays, cylinders, chemistry, etc.). Thanks,
    Ted

    Freestyle Photo Supply on line. Good prices, great customer service, BIG selection, and speedy shipping.

    Most of the photo shops here in Southeast Michigan have closed down. I believe Huron Camera in Dexter still sells darkroom supplies. I would check there first as I believe Big George's in Ann Arbor closed their photo section. I believe all the Adray's around town closed as well.

    Dexter

    Greetings from Pinckney/Dexter area: Huron Camera is very much alive and well in Dexter, Michigan. I try and buy all my supplies there as I like to shop there and support George. Between there and Ebay for misc stuff, been able to keep my lab going Cheers, Steve

    Likewise, however, a few weeks ago they were out of both fixer and D-76 so I ordered on-line. It would be my preference to use Huron Cam. Might be worthwhile to call ahead and see if they have what you need in stock.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Thanks, Steve. I haven't been into Huron Camera for a while. Guess I need to check, and support a local business.

    Not much left here in Michigan. Adray had the most comprehensive stock, but sadly they are no more. Camera Mart in Pontiac still has some chemistry and a few supplies, but I would say your best bet is to order from Calumet (www.calumetphoto.com). If you order by 3PM it will be to you via UPS the next day. A little longer across the bridge I am assuming. Freestyle takes up to 5 days in these parts for delivery although still a good source, but that would take even longer for you in Canada. If you are closer to TO, go there.

    I was just in Huron Camera yesterday and they have loads of stuff! I plan to buy as many of my chemicals and supplies there as I can - George and the rest of the crew are great (just got my 5d sensor cleaned and they may help me with CLA for my LF lenses) and certainly deserve your business. Give them a try! They're also very knowledgeable and have LOADS of used gear!

    Adray's in Dearborn was my favorite place. I bought my 4x5 Toyo there and all my darkroom supplies. They closed after I had moved away. What a shame!

    Does Nathan Camera in Royal Oak still exist? He had darkroom chemicals too.
