Considering the state of thinks about Ilford and diminishing inventories of their films, papers and chemicals in local shops it looks it is time to look for some good e-shop, preferable in Europe. The same for brand strategy - it looks time for my current "Ilford film, Ilford developer, Ilford paper" is over.

BTW - I dont understand why it is problem to buy czech Foma papers here in Bratislava, a few kliks from the border, but it is problem.

I buy my stuff from two german vendors - phototec.de and fotoimpex.de (who are involved with J&C in the USA). Both are a pleasure to deal with, the two add up each other in terms of brands and profile (phototec for the standard stuff, fotoimpex for Calbe, Efke, Foma, Forte).

I recently visited the Foma factory shop in Praha - wow. Nice prices, good stock... and Foto Skoda down the road was even better.

You can´t do much wrong in buying and using Foma papers but to save a few bucks. In fact I prefer Fomaspeed Variant3 over MG4 when I have to choose - in my eyes it´s the better paper in terms of tonal rendition, contrast control, base.

Before I went there I checked the prices with the help of a czech online shop which seems to be affiliated with the factory - Dead Link Removed
