I personally use the Fuji 5L kits from Ag Photo in the UK and have them shipped to AU. Comes out to about $200 for 50 rolls, but that's 1/3 of the price of walking into a lab and we don't have import tariffs on photo chemistry except 10% GST on packages over $1000.
It is true. Import taxes doubles (actually, itīs a bit more) the price of the good + freight. And thatīs why we are trying to make our own chemicals.
