Could people comment on sources in Italy? Or mail order within the EU.

A Swiss webshop, but also oriented towards Italy.

For 4x5", in Milan, Turin, Ancona, Udine, Verona, Genova:

But be advised that large format films are becoming more and more difficult to find here in Italy, especially colours, in some cases even the major retailers have but a few emulsions in stock (usually Provia, E100G, Velvia 100F, but not in the Quickload version, even if you still find Kodak Readyload).

Colour 8x10" is a very very very rare "animal" ;)

A lot of people here in Italy prefer to buy online outside Italy, far more choices available, Robert White in UK or Prophot in Paris come to mind...

Oddly enough, when I checked on local supplies in northern Norway last week I found one supplier of 8x10" film within 100km from where I was staying - but ONLY Ektachrome E100G! :)


If I'd known about Unionfotomarket when I was in Italy, I might have shot a lot more film.

Ah well - next time I will! :)

Those guys? I may have missed it but how is shipping? I should ask about Unionfotomarket shipping to. Seems you need to register for more info.

Added question. How hard will it be to find a Durst 138 with a colour head? Or other similar enlarger.

Yes, those guys ;)...I purchased only once, they shipped via express courier form Paris to Milan, everything was smooth but expensive (even the shipping costs) if compared with the USA prices...

Unionfotomarket: I think that they ship only in Italy, contact them at this email: ordiniweb@unionfotomarket.it , this is for the web orders in the Milan shop, and if you need help, i.e. I have to contact them directly, feel free to ask, no problem for me, I'm from Milan too...


Ciao!!

I'm hoping to be near Cassino. Can they handle english? Because my written Italian might confuse them :p

In this case the second hand market here in Italy is quite active, there are shops in the northern major cities (Milan and Turin and Bologna above all) which sell printing traditional equipment, sadly I'm an "inkjet" guy so I can't give you lots of infos, I'll ask to some friends of mine ;)...

Yes, I do think that they can read and write english quite well, but in case they do not just let me know and I'll ask for you...
