    Where Are You Purchasing 120 & 4 x 5 film? Is across the border the answer?

    My supply is getting low & so I'm going to need to replace my stock of 120 & 4 x 5 film. I live outside of Waterloo so going to Toronto isn't as frequent anymore to catch the sales. I was really considering buying from B & H. The chain store in Waterloo, (I'm sure you all know) sells at list here. Any suggestions?

    Film stocks in TO have thinned out dramatically. Limited selection and high prices. You can try FilmPlus but suspect you'll opt for B&H. Their shipping is reasonable and they'll tell you upfront what taxes and brokerage will be on your order. The higher C$ makes it less painful, too.

    The PHSC Fall Fair is coming up next month(see thread in this section) where you can get expired film cheap. It's anyone's guess, though, what will be on offer. Rarely anything fresh for sale.

    I buy 120 film and lot's of other stuff from B&H. Delivery is incredibly rapid to Québec City, and B&H takes care of customs and taxes. Their shipping rates are low. For most things, the final cost is usually lower than from Canadian sources, like Henry's.

    Try to buy local when I can but honestly, my hard earned dollars usually go to B&H.

    Hard to beat B&H for prices (and shipping) on anything but I've been buying chemicals, paper and some film from Beau Photo. Their prices are reasonable enough that I'm happy to support them. They're probably not as convenient for Ontario though but they are the best I've found on this side of the border.

    I agree with most guys above. I buy all my film from 35mm to 8x10 with B&H. Their iPhone app is so good that it's a breeze to spend money. Problem is, every week I have to go back to work to make more money.

    I recently discovered Beau Photo in Vancouver and will buy my Tetenal 5L C41 kits from them now. I buy my E6 chems from Foto Impex in Germany (It's cheaper. Can you believe it?). Thank goodness for the global economy.

    As long as we support film and film related products of all flavours, I'm sure together we can weather this digital storm. I don't like when it rains pixels and SD cards.
