    Whats the BW paper called?

    (there seems to be Japanese tradition to save the best for their local market in manufacturing. I find it interesting.)

    I don't know much about the papers, but you can check here
    And yes, the developers are in powders.
    Fuji SPD
    Fuji Microfine

    They also come in bigger quantities at discount. for example, 20l is only 1830 yen. Then the developer would cost 9cents per roll.

    Plus one more...

    Having done that it would not be a ruinous exercise to simply buy a roll of everything you can find that is current and not yet withdrawn from the market, use them, consider the results and then choose for yourself.

    An often overlooked consideration is how the film is to work with. Some films make glorious negatives but are unbelievably awkward to get flat on the negative carrier, or a nightmare to coax into the developing tank spiral...

    Fujihunt chemistry, like their Negastar Pro liquid film developer is available here in Europe.

    Wonder if Yodobashi ships out? (will have to look up the translated details on the desktop)

    Unfortunately they don't. I have asked them last week.

    Yodobashi may not, but Japan Exposures does. However, their mark-up is a bit more than what you can get at Yodobashi.

    This thread actually reminded me that I have some Fuji chemicals to try out. In Japan they are cheaper than Kodak or Ilford chemicals (as is the paper), but I'm a girl of habit, so for the most part have stuck to what I know, unless I can't get it here (for example, Photoflo is impossible to get, but Fuji's equivalent is Driwel, which works exactly the same). You may notice in the photos below another brand called Chugai: it's cheap and everywhere, even the small little mom and pop shops that still sell some film. I like the Fujibro paper, it's what I usually use for the postcard exchanges and to make contact/work prints. It's a fast paper and dries nice and flat. Here are a couple of old threads that I started about its lithability: Link1 Link2

    Fujifilm (and other products at Kyoto Yodobashi Camera: not nearly as good as Osaka or Tokyo, but better than most cities)

    If you are an experienced 35mm shooter, just use what film your used to!
