    Who sells film in Australia?

    Hello All,

    I'm wondering if I could get the names of the online or retail stores that sell film and other analogue products in Australia? Might be going soon. Plus, I'm interested in whether you just generally order from overseas.

    Order from overseas, it's a lot cheaper.

    But if I wanted to buy from a store or online store within AU, who would it be?

    Plus, are things like photochemicals cheaper?

    Vanbar in Sydney
    Foto Riesel in Sydney
    Ted's, Pitt St in Sydney
    I don't think chemistry will be cheaper because everything is shipped over.
    Search Vanbar and look at their online prices - it's easy to compare as AUD/USD are close enough to parity.

    I'd like to buy film locally, but you can save $100's buying online from overseas - it's almost ridiculous.

    If I have an option of getting a roll locally for $20 or from overseas for $5. It's a simple choice... Locally would be great, but it's just not realistic at those prices.

    Pbarcelon and cheap_shots_au sell a lot of 4x5 (and roll) on eBay. Relatively cheap and quicker than going off-shore.

    In Adelaide:
    photographicwholesalers.com.au are on Hutt Street, have a nice fridge full of stuff, especially rarer and sheet LF.
    blackandwhitephoto.com.au are in Payneham, just out of the city, good selection of 135 and 120 sizes. It's (afaik) the only place left for E6 and B+W developing, I use them all the time for my devs.
    (ps, note i'm saying "available", not necessarily "cheap")

    Best place to buy film is in Sydney via ebay. No pickup, postage only, but he's the cheapest film I can find (locally at least): myworld.ebay.com.au/cheap_shots_au

    I thought of suggesting ebay but I'm assuming the OP will be here on holiday and won't have a local mailing address. Cheap Shots is a good option for locals.

    Hi, try these two - not the cheapest but perhaps acceptable if needed:

    http://shop.lofico.com.au/category/film
    http://www.blanconegrosupplies.com.au/BNS/Film.html

    However as suggested below overseas purchase is more cost effective (in larger volumes!).

    If you like Ilford films and chemicals, this one is interesting:

    Really cheap delivery and not bad price for larger numbers (ex tax as well, :-) )
