View Full Version : Film and Processing in Auckland and Sydney
On Monday I will leave on a three week trip through New Zealand (North Island) and Australia (Sydney, Alice Springs). To avoid any problems with hand searching and x-rays etc. I would like to purchase 4x5 sheet film (e100vs and tri-x) there and have it processed locally.
Can anyone recommend labs for processing and shops for purchasing in Auckland and Sydney.
For processing in Sydney, among others there's:
The Lab, 10 Danks St, Waterloo or
Tranny's http://www.trannys.com.au/) or
Vision Graphics http://www.visiongraphics.com.au/)
I believe that some of the city CBD processors have closed since I used them a couple of years ago :(
These labs also sell film in varying quantities. The pro camera shops might be a better idea for buying film though:
Foto Riesel Camera House, 364 A Kent St Sydney or
Baltronics, Unit 4/ 2 George Pl Artarmon or
Fletchers Fotographics, 317 Pitt St, Sydney or
L & P Photographic, 96 Reserve Rd Artarmon (if desperate)
If you need vast quantities of film you should consider pre-ordering.
Depending on where in the world you currently live, you be surprised by the price of 4x5 film.

If you make it to Melbourne, E6Plus is recommended. www.e6plus.com
