Yes I bought an X0 (which broke!) and then an X9 to preserve the LDs and now this. This is a very expensive forum!
Silverwook, unfortunately I can't write any off to tax, I actually earn so little each year I pay around $1000 tax per annum, and this doesn't qualify unfortunately.
Even if it isn't working, I should have the expertise to get it going.
The shipping is a bit high, but $500 of that is import duty and Australian Tax, and it has to be crated up. It weighs 400kg. I live 4 hours from the nearest city as well, so it all adds up.
I just though with 35mm prints starting to come out of the woodwork, it would be too much of a shame not to have a way of preserving them when the opportunity comes up. This was too good to pass up. I am selling pretty much everything to scrape the money together to pay the logistics company, so fingers crossed it all works and arrives in one piece!
