Hi Loris,

I use Agfa CopyJet for all my alternative processes. With fully satisfying results. In Holland, I just contacted the Agfa service centre in Holland, and they told to just pay ahead, and they'd send the material to my home by courier. Maybe that's possible in your country as well? Or otherwise, maybe you can arrange such a thing in the UK, and let it be delivered to your hotel...

kind regards,

Hi all,

I will be at London between March 5 and 9. As  my negative media supply is
short, I want to replenish it with something which can be found in London,
for reasonable prices.

In my understanding Pictocio (the media I currently use) is hard to find
in UK, also expensive. From what I read, a good alternative for European
practicioners would be Agfa CopyJet. Is there an Agfa reseller in central
London with good prices?

What would be your suggestions for equally good (compared to Pictorico
and/or Agfa CopyJet) inkjet transparency media, that can be purchased in
London? I print my negatives using HP 9180 printer (HP Vivera pigmented
inks), which is pretty picky about transparency media, BTW. (Couldn't find
something else than Pictorico that works reliably - But I have high hopes
with Agfa CopyJet!) So, sharing your experience in digital negative making
on HP9180 using negative medias other than Pictorico would be highly

Do you have any suggestions for alt. process related places / shows /
"must see"s in London? Also, I'd like to meet London-based
alt-photo-process-l members too, if their schedule permits...
