    Is there a list os shops in the US or Canada that still sell medium format/large format film. I am traveling and mail order is difficult. I figured there might be a list somewhere here. I am especially interested in Montana, Calgary, Washington/Oregon region.

    How are you travelling, by car or air? If by car, save yourself a lot of trouble and just buy what you think you will need before you leave.

    I am traveling by motorcycle so space is an issue.

    In Calgary The Camera Store has a good selection of medium and large format film - 120 4x5, 5x7 & 8x10. It is probably one of the largest camera stores west of Toronto and services both film and digital shooters. Check our their website and it should give you a good idea as to what film is in stock.

    Sorry, couldn't stop in Calgary. Any places in Oregon or Washington state. I also need a good CLA for my Bronica RF645.

    Check out 220 film instead of 120, half the space requirement, and 50 sheet boxes of 4x5" film instead of 10 sheet boxes (if you shoot color.)
