Film Photography / Developing query

Post by jackv on Mon May 08, 2017 3:48 pm

I'm moving Lakeside next month and wonder if anyone knows of sources for b&w film developing supplies. The moving company I'm using tells me NONE of the chemicals I wanted to bring (including even food-grade ascorbic acid and household washing soda!) are permitted in a shipment of household goods. Does anyone know of a source for chemicals, developers, fixers etc down thataway in case I can't get my supplies past Aduana in my car? (The only way to get such chemicals NOB these days is online, given than camera stores have gone the way of the buggy whip.) Chemical supply stores in Guad, perhaps? Although I do shoot digital I'm not keen on giving up the analog part of my hobby. Thanks.

There is an art association in the area called "Ajijic Society of the Arts" which will be meeting at the La Bodega restaurant on 16 de Septiembre St. in central Ajijic on June 5th and again on the first Monday of July.
Coffee served from 9:30; business meeting at 10. Visitors welcome.
Yearly dues $200 pesos if you want to join.
There are a number of photographers who belong, among them several who work in black and white film. During the open question period, you can ask for information about getting supplies. I'm sure they are available, either nearby or in Guadalajara. Not to worry.
Welcome!
