absolutely agree with all the comments here! Our experiences so far within the short 5-6 months we've had since we've started this business makes this issue even more evident to us.

For one.. Australian "distributors" hardly ever really do much "distribution" but look to protection of their markets and profits above everything else. It's great for the suppliers/distributors, but tragic for the consumers since they are practically left with no local choices.

Anyway thanks for the suggestions and comments As I said it's not out of the question for us to stock some darkroom stuff. Stock selection is a particular problem for us though as once we start stocking one thing we don't have to capacity to stock more and more variations

Always open to suggestions though.. what kind of darkroom things would you guys like to see the most available in Australia (at competitive prices)?
