    Where to buy film and paper in Canada?

    Now that Rob Skeoch appears to be closing his retail store, where in Canada can I buy sheet film (4x5,5x7 and 8x10) and paper ?

    Thanks,
    Ron

    If B&H Photo and Freestyle ship to Canada, they would be the way to go, IMO.

    Where are you located? I'm just down the road from Vancouver. I get film from B&H and Freestyle and have it shipped to Blaine, WA, where I pick it up. In the past I have also gotten film and paper from The Camera Store in Calgary, as well as Henry's in Toronto.

    There is also Beau Photo in Vancouver, but I find them to be expensive.

    FilmPlus (in Toronto) had 8x10 Ilford last time I was there (number of months ago). Think Downtown Camera and Henrys still sell 4x5. Otherwise B&H if you want to save money.
    notch codes ? I only use one film...

    My local Henry's here in Sudbury, Ontario told me they couldn't get 4x5 film today.

    I know about B&H but hoped there was another source other than Rob. I may have to persuade him to do a once a year order type of deal .....

    Thanks for the responses so far. I'll check out FilmPlus ...

    Ron, The Camera Store in Calgary is the western pro store & has Ilford 4x5 all the time. Unlike the stores in Toronto it also lists the films & prices. They're great folks to deal with. I've ordered without problems from Glazers in Seattle (Kodak TMY2) Canham (Kodak TMY2), B&H in NY & lately from Freestyle. Freestyle has high shipping rates to Canada but B&H is very reasonable by comparison.

    B & H have excellent shipping to Canada via Purolater.

    Ron, As an example, The Camera Store charges $159 Cdn for a box of 100 sheets of Ilford Delta 100. B&H charges $130 U.S. I'm betting the credit card exchange rate & the shipping cost would make it a wash whether you order from Canada or the U.S.....but I'm betting shipping from Calgary will take less time than crossing the border from the U.S. If you're shooting 4x5 you've got lots of great options, & it is a shame that Rob S isn't able to keep up & running for paper & film sales.

    Just for fun I've compare the price for a box of 100 sheets of HP5+ 4x5 between The Camera Store (149.29$) and Photo Service in Montréal and Photo Service is selling the box at 124.98$ a 25$ difference.
