    E-6 Chemicals in Canada?

    Does anyone know of a source for E-6 chemical kits in Canada? Freestyle can't ship theirs to Canada. I've asked around in the Toronto market, but I'm curious if anyone else has had success recently.

    I think B&H will ship C-41 and E-6 to Canada, but I haven't verified that.

    I used to get Kodak's kit from Vistek but that isn't an option anymore.

    I've tried getting Freestyle to ship. But they're stubborn about it.

    B&H doesn't appear to have any complete E-6 options. Last I checked. Adorama I believe does carry E-6 chemistry and I think will ship.

    You could try Beau Photo in Vancouver, as a newspaper photographer, our paper used to order C-41 chemicals from them about 10 years ago.

    Hey Sean,

    Earlier this year I ordered about 3 Kodak single use kits from ElPro in downtown Toronto. Give them a call and tell them I sent you. I believe Kodak plans on discontinuing them but ElPro may still be able to get some for you.

    Cheers,

    In Canada, no. I've mail ordered from the UK (expensive) and shipped to friends on buffalo (inconvenient)

    Getting E6 chemistry in Canada isn't a problem it has to do with the quantity that you have to purchase. Because the different chemicals are shipped in case lots Dealers end up with stock sitting on their shelves going bad so they won't order it unless you want to take the case lots. Colour Dev. for example comes in quantity of 1 -5 gal/19L where the first dev. come in a quantity of 4 - to make 4 10L. I just picked up an order yesterday and it is expiration date is 05/2013 to 12/2013. If you have one or two people to split an order with you won't get stuck with much in the way of surplus chemicals.
    If you want any information on the case lots send me a PM.
