    Seriously it's like Nirvana... (and Ken would probably know about Nirvana... being near Seattle and all... hehe).

I kind of like the AGFA sign above the cooler, wish I could snag it!

    As far as non-lab film places...
    That shot I linked to is of Beau Photo. They aren't a lab, it's just that they've recently started taking in photofinishing orders for one of the pro-labs in town.

    They are a professional photo supply retailer with a fairly large pro rental program.

    They also service a lot of the educational institutions - including Emily Carr, which is an art college with a photography program.

    They used to be one of the two major album suppliers to the pro wedding market. They still sell lots of that sort of stuff.

    They bring in materials from Photographers' Formulary as well as some of the Freestyle house brand stuff.

    It is often significantly more expensive to buy from them than to import stuff from the New York megastores, but that is because they pay a lot for their stock and they sell with a reasonable markup.

    I have just one complaint - they aren't open weekends and the only evening they are open is Thursdays until 7 pm.

    Hi Ken:

    Glazer's has more selection and, as it sources from US distributors, it can offer lower prices on quite a few things.

    The photo linked to does a wonderfully artistic job of showing most of the analogue/film inventory at its best. There is actually another moderately sized section not shown, where they have their (predominantly Ilford) photographic paper.

    But Beau is a really good source, with really good people.

    I just wish they were open on weekends and more evenings, because their location is near downtown Vancouver, and I'm rarely their during business hours.

    I've been trying to persuade them to advertise on APUG - I wonder if this will help?

    That's the same as my local photo store... they ARE a lab, but most of their actual money making is in selling new shiny digital cameras to unsuspecting soccer moms...

    Just checked my local pharmacy and they still have HP5, XP2 & BW400CN on buy one get a second (cheaper) half price so I bought 2xHP5. They had lots of C41 colour as well.

    Jeebus - I'm so jealous of you all. My local pharmacy offers a stunning selection of disposable cameras and memory cards in their still-demarcated "Film" area. And the photo dude said that they couldn't develop my ilford xp2, because it was black and white. Even though I explained that it was C41. So...yeah.

    But on the plus side, I am surrounded by lovely mountains.

    I'd take the lovely surroundings any day. I can order film easily off the Internet, and have it delivered to my door in two days for less money than most places sell locally. Heck, the two days is probably quicker than I could find time to run by and buy it locally. But you can't just order up some lovely mountains via the Internet.

    Maybe I'm not old enough, but I do not remember any non-C-41 B&W film at pharmacies here in the U.S. I do remember a wide variety of color film before digital, but anything B&W (other than C-41 b&w) seemed only to be at camera shops.

    Nah, probably just not old enough. I used to buy Tri-X and Plus-X at department stored and pharmacies in the 70s.
