    Have to blame the USPS, not freestyle. At current rates, the shipping comes to about 2 bucks US a pound. I don't beleive that freestyle marks it up any.

    I don't care who to blame. What I care is that its expensive to order from the US, hence my query as to whether Arista is available in Canada!

    Since I don't know any retailers that sell Arista besides Henry's, I don't know what the Canadian retail prices are. The is the reason for my question

    I know Don's doesn't carry it.

    I've had excellent service from Photo Central based out of Winnipeg for all film-related purchases -- their site is darkroomcentral.ca, I'd recommend going there to see if they can help.

    (I have no ties to that company, just making a recommendation based on personal experience)

    Henry's has a website. Is the film not listed there?
    Jim MacKenzie - Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    I have had 4 or 5 boxes shipped from Freestyle to Edmonton, and they are all shipped by USPS...have to make it larger orders thou to save on shipping costs, as it is still fairly expensive.

    I have also bought photo paper, and chemistry from darkroom central, they are a pleasure to deal with and ship quickly.
