I'd probably start by calling up Kodak and Fuji and asking...have you tried that?

The last time I looked, Kodak only had two double-perf stocks available in 1-roll minimums, one B/W and one color negative. They had a few others with something like 18 roll minimums or 400 foot cores or both.

My understanding is that they are often out-of-stock on these-- give them a call and they can check. The big-city distribution centers might be more helpful or aware of the question. They might also have them.

Of course. But they aren't available from K or F in Aus. I should have asked above "how available is double perf in the USA?".
