    Hello,

    I am considering to order a 20-pack of Velvia 100F from a New York based dealership and have it shipped to my address here in Europe. Does anyone know if carriers (UPS, FedEx or USPS) scan the pack with X-Ray so that it will possibly destroy my films? Thanks!

    x-ray is probably OK, but you may likely be charged for import custom / duty, plus the P&P, i doubt if there is any benefit mail order fromt the states. i live in UK and always buy my photography related consumpables from You must be logged in to see this link. check it out to see if its any good for you.

    Thanks for all the tips! I have checked out You must be logged in to see this link. Andy...My first order was just posted. They are very reasonable to say the least. Thanks so much!

    You must be logged in to see this link. looks like a great website only for poor souls in France I believe they don't ship !

    Anyone know of a good UK-based online photo store that stocks many products at decent prices and that ships to France? I'm from New York and quite used to B&H and have never found anything like it in France.

    I imagine there must be something like it in the UK, would be keen to have any recommendations.

    Many thanks,

    Mark

    What I'm actually looking for is HP Premium Plus photo paper, in both glossy and matt.

    Matt is especially hard to find
