    I went to the perth one last time, picked up most of my developing gear there for very cheap. Leederville hall is on cambridge st I think... well I know where it is in my head, but I'm not good with street names. Is around that area. It started at around 8 or 9 am from memory.

    That's all I have so far. The ads were in the current Photo trader mag. I've got some #s so will call and see what I can find. Perth had no ad, just mentioned it in an article about the last perth market. Syd was a full ad, Melb I have been to before so I know it's usually 9am start, $3-4 entry.

    I was going to go along for the opening, see what I can find then go back later for any bargains. In the meantime there is the Camberwell sunday market(huge car boot sale type market) which is about 2 minutes walk away and hopefully some breakfast.

    Hi my name's plasticbastard, and I shoot with a Pentax 645 MF. I'm also addicted to Provia 100F. It's a bad habit... ;)

    Oh my God. Another choice in colour neg. Amazing. I shoot tranny over neg even if it's not as practical, just because there are so many great choices with tranny and it's fun to see what you like most. The colour neg options are so lacklustre I can hardly find any differences. It's only when you print it traditionally that it gets you excited. And I'm too impatient for RA4 printing.

    This film should be interesting to give a go! Wow...Kodak ADDING a film to their lineup. Amazing.

    They've dropped 100 and 400 UC apparently to make way for the new one. 400UC was a great travel/snapshoty film for me.... Hope they bring out the new one in 400.

    Kodak have said:

    "And based on the superior performance and very positive response to our new PORTRA 400NC and VC Films, KODAK PROFESSIONAL ULTRA COLOR Film / 400UC will also be removed from the portfolio by year end 2008."

    taken from here

    Ricoh 500 G arrived today. First really old camera I have, so much to learn. Will grab a roll and start to test it out soon.

    Any tips? :Paranoid:

    Nice, hope you enjoy it. I see myself moving to an RF as my main camera in the near future, just gotta do a bit more saving.

    It's really nice.

    I was actually aiming for a Hexar RF or ZI, but this 1:1 vf is sort of nice (even though i can barely see the 40mm lines). Maybe I'll get a HRF or Zi or even a nice M3 or M6 later, they are reasonably cheap (relatively!) these days.
