Hello Xiao,

Bruce at Aranda supplies a lot of camera modifications for Asia and India because of his location in Australia. He is likely to know someone in China that he has supplied a 2-perf camera to. Here's a link to his website:

hi paul

thanks for the response, i am already in contact with bruce and planning my strategy out.
some guy from some rental company in hong kong told me that there are no 2perf cameras in hong kong available.
none in beijing as well.

so ill just bring one from vienna then i guess.

so whats the experience on bringing film along? (250d and 500d) xrays, flying etc.

thanks!

Ok, good to know, although I'd really need to get a major bump in my career to be able to shoot 35mm. :D So far I'm happy to be able to shoot 16 at my personal expense!
Do you live in Vienna?

Cheers, Dave

Dear XiaoSu,
Bringing film in not a good idea such as Xray issues. We are a HK production company with several thousand feet of extra new Fuji film. You mentioned needing film for your shoot. We may be able to assist Please tell us what you need and we will get back with a price.
Best Regards,
Bob Mony
