    I get my Fuji Neopan 400 from Wells Photo in Magallanes and (my personal fave) Ilford HP5 from Shutter Master in Pasong Tamo Ext.

    As for film development I also to Wells, since they still do manual film processing, and it's right next to my office.

    I've been using an Epson V500 for a couple of years now. No complaints here. I suppose they're all the same.

    Disclaimer: I'm not a film master like Toto. ;)

    Not a leica user, but i do scan my own color and develop bw negs. Got an Epson 4990 pro for 3.5k years ago from a tpc seller. 6 years running and never had an issue.

    I think I'll sell off a farm lot in Pampanga to get me an M with a 0.95 Noctilux. Let the new owner deal with the nice people around.

    Had a Digilux 3 before and liked the image rendering of the camera. Sold it though since it was too slow for use for my wedding photog sideline . . .

    I'd seriously consider getting the Type 109 as a nice light travel cam. Have an OMD Em5, but even that seems a bit complicated to carry.

    Miss my old LX3 which proved very handy as a vacation cam.

    Let's hope the Philippine Leica store's price of the Type 109 is close to the global SRP. It would be a shame if they overprice it, people who do Leica can get theirs easily overseas. Sayang yung 3-year warranty.

    this new typ 109 will likely be faster in operation than the digilux, since it's equipped with the gh4's cpu and dfd autofocus.

    let's hope the leica ph store will have it when they finally open. :)
