    When I was a young lad of eighteen I worked at a camera store. The boss called the regional Kodak rep to complain about some Kodak dealings. The rep just scoffed and said, "If you don't like it go buy your Kodak film somewhere else".

    In the hopes of sparing others the feeling of dread that I experienced, I'd like to point out that this thread was started last year.

    This may be an old thread but it's still fun to complain about it.

    In Edmonton, Tri-X is $6.89 for 36 exp 35mm roll. It's one of the few that are cheaper in 35mm than 120 on a per roll basis. That's Don's Photo (Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg).

    Henry's (Toronto, Ottawa, ...) has it for $8.99 for 36 exp and $6.99 for 24 exp (ouch!).

    Kerrisdale Cameras (Vancouver, Victoria) has 24 exp for $5.99.

    The Camera Store (Calgary) has 36 exp roll for $8.18 (ouch again!).

    Lozeau (Montreal) has 24 exp for $6.99 and 36 exp roll for $7.99.

    Those are some of the main Canadian stores (Henry's and the Camera Store particularly). Don't know about stores in Quebec City or the Maritimes (except Atlantic Photo Supply, which didn't show 400tx). Other stores in Toronto are comparable and other stores in Edmonton are more expensive. It looks like Prairie folk are getting the best deal on Tri-X in Canada. I'm surprised, I always thought that Canadians elsewhere paid similarly to myself. I'd assume larger markets like Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver would actually be a bit cheaper.

    But I hardly shoot Tri-X anyways. I've long dedicated my B&W photography to Ilford. HP5 is the same price as Tri-X, anyways.

The 3 largest markets, close to major U.S. markets, have expensive film. Just defies logic to me. For $8.99 a roll, no way I'd be continuing to support the local guys, I'd just buy from B&H like so many others clearly have done.

    Beau Photo has HP5+ 35mm 36 exp for $6.60 a roll on their website.

    And their Kodak pricelist is still "coming soon" - grrr!

    Kodak doesn't seem to change their attitude even though the loyalty isn't there anymore, they aren't "the best" like they used to be... Just one of... But they don't realize this...

    Agreed, I buy from B&H and Tmax is actually cheaper than Tri-X and the Tmax is cheaper than Delta 400 so that's the only Kodak film I buy, if that changes, I'll go back to Ilford, I buy 2 other of their films already anyway and they 'get it' so I'll support them but when grain-less-ness is less important I still go for HP5 over Tri-X, it's got such beautiful tones... Yep, Kodak is certainly pricing themselves out of the market... Shame...

    Ultimately you have two choices,either pay the price or do without the product.
