Hello again to all you faithful readers of the Megaperls Webshop news and many apologies for a lack of updates. We have been running the site at full steam over the last months and thank everybody for their continued support and recommendations on the web.
The biggest news and most recent significant addition are the re-released Velvia 50 films. Early tests show that it lives up to the heritage of the previous Velvia and well worth going back to if you enjoyed shooting classic Velvia in the past.
Another fantastic addition is the Provia 400X. While it is not a cheap film many photographers state that the film’s quality in terms of grain and colour fidelity of that of a 100 speed film and people are very impressed.
MS-MAG rangefinder viewfinder magnifiers made by MS Optical R&D have been a hit and continue to see a lot of demand. The manufacturer have told us that 1.35 magnifiers will need to be manufactured soon which may lead to a brief interruption in supplies between production runs. Less so for the 1.3N, which fits Bessa R, Epson RD-1 and Zeiss Ikon series rangefinders – due to lack of domestic demand they will no longer be made once current supplies run out, so it is recommended to secure yours as soon as possible.
As previously announced, Neopan black and white film in 30.5m/100ft bulk rolls were no longer manufactured since March 2007 and supply is virtually exhausted for Neopan 1600 Super Presto and Neopan 100 Acros in this format. We still have good stocks of Neopan 100 SS and Neopan 400 Presto, but as always it is recommended to act sooner than later if you like those films and wish to continue to rolling your own.
Please note that Megaperls Web Shop will be on holiday from July 14th until July 21st. Orders placed after July 13th will be fulfilled on our return later in July. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but like everyone else we need a little break from it all sometimes.
