I was in Auckland last year, part of a short trip to New Zealand and Australia. Someone at Auckland Camera told me that "it was time to join the real world" or similar such words when I asked for 120 film after I had run unexpectedly short ...... The young New Zealand photographer who was my assistant on the trip laughed when I told him. Apparently I was not the only one to get this sort of reception. We picked extra film up from a place I assume was LabTech/PCL on his suggestion. They also did some of my processing for me, them and a lab in Wellington (Image Lab?) that seemed to be run by a very unhappy, grumpy guy. Both places did good processing, (c41, e6) clean, scratch free.
I have used the Christchurch Photo and Video store in the past (three/four years ago) very good.
