    LF film in Cape Town

    Does anyone know of a source of 5x4 (ideally Velvia 100 but I can be flexible) in Cape Town?

    Thank you.

    David.

    Thanks folks. No, I am not already there, but I was hoping first to avoid the airports and film thing (although I have just had an excellent experience asking for LF film to be hand scanned at Newark - Newark and excellent don't often go together so that should be celebrated) and second to support the local shops. I'll try the guys in Joburg and see if they can ship it to my hotel.

    Hi David,
    Orms mentioned above are the only retailer that occasianally stock a bit of 4 x 5 film, but very little variety (usually only provia) and stupidly expensive. I never buy from them, always have mine shipped in from B&H. Their E6 processing is very good though and fast, i handed in 53 sheets yesterday morning at 8am and collected them at 2pm.

    Cheers

    Eugene
