Where to buy film in Hong Kong

Here are some websites and shops where you can buy film in Hong Kong.

CameraFilmPhoto
Selling lots of different film, like cinestill, Agfa, Rollei everything really and also camera bags, darkroom accessories. Looks like a cool site, but I haven't bought anything from there myself.

Meteor
Same here, looks like a good site.

LOG-ON
Log-On sells Lomo cameras, Polaroid Cameras, Instax products and a bit of 35mm film, but not very consistently. But every time I'm there, I get some Agfa Vista. I think they also will be selling  the INSTAFLEX which is available to buy in just 9 days.
City Super Log-On

Yahoo Auctions
is really popular in Hong Kong and it is alright sometimes for buying film or even cameras, especially Holgas, unfortunately it is all in Chinese, but if you already have a Yahoo account you can contact the seller (with some help from google translate) and arrange the trade somewhere. I bought a Minolta HiMatic 7S there once in really good condition and with 3 months guarantee!

Here's a Shop selling Lomo Film

I like the back alleys in HK. Sometimes they're really disgusting with all the rats, roaches, greasy concrete and rubbish from the restaurants.

By the way, http://hong-kong-blogs-review.com/ has reviewed my blog. Thank you :)

Photos taken with a Braun Ultralit Point and Shoot and Agfa Vista. I bought this little camera in a small shop in Wan Chai, still in the original box for about 100HK$. It's nice, but the focus is a hit and miss.
