I'm trying to get hold of a 72mm acrylic UR-Pro filter, CC colour, to dismantle and recess in the front of my Z1 to use in conjunction with an Expodisc.

I've been trying UR-Pro by email and phone for a few days and I can't get any answer. Does anyone know another source for one of these that might be able to send it here to Thailand?

Thanks!

Nick,
That is your best source. They are a small shop and when traveling, are not super fast about responding. As soon as they get back in the shop, they are very good about turnaround. If it is not super urgent. i would give em a few days. Realy nice folks too.

Well I've been emailing and calling UR-Pro for 2 weeks now and I can't get hold of them for love nor money.

A member here kindly advised me that Gates have them but unfortunately they only have the glass ones, and I'd prefer acrylic.

Any other ideas anyone? A mobile number for them perhaps?

Nick, email Andrew Yeo at SEA & SEA Photo in Singapore. He carries some of the URPro stuff. He won't be as cheap as Dirk but at least he's just 2 day mail.
