    What there are, are shipping restrictions. The consumer oriented ground shipping system that people can use to ship Rodinal and other similar items within the USA is not available for shipping to Canada.

    The consumer oriented shipping procedures that are available for shipping to Canada aren't approved for items like Rodinal.

    You could arrange special, commercial shipping, but the cost would only make sense for large quantities, and retailers like B&H probably wouldn't want the aggravation.
    OK for the specifications you brought up. But, in the end, the results are just the same...

    In an earlier post I suggested two places in Canada who would definitely have access to it: Beau Photo in Vancouver and argentix.ca in Quebec. The second is close to you and an APUG advertiser, I suggest you check them out.

    Beau Photo mails all kinds of stuff to me that can't be shipped from the USA. HC-110 for example.

    And that's a shame given the Canadian American relationship and geography. What happened? Last time I was in Vancouver I really felt like I was in a foreign country. More than any other time since I first went there at age five and that was in the 1950's. Nothing awful just different. Maybe 911 had something to do with it. Maybe it's always been hard to ship certain items, I don't know.

    Photo-service, on Notre-Dame, had about 10 bottles of Blazinal (Rodinal in Canada) last time I was there (yesterday).

    That's what I have, Blazinal. But I have been told this is not the original Rodinal recipe...

    Right, Argentix has it and more. All this mainly imported from Freestyle, so a bit more costly. A final solution when everything else doesn't work. Sorry to say it.

    If by original rodinal you mean the "last" iteration, the one from say 2008, then yes it is, absolutely.

    If by original you mean the first iteration, from say 1914, then no it isn't.

    Is there still some Rodinal similar of the original recipe on the market. Sorry, I might have missed the information along the whole thread. If so, is this the one offered by Adox?
