    Just hope they ship it via the mail, something US buyers may not realise, it's not the cost of the product, it's not exchange or even customs duties, it's customs brokerage fees that kill you. The post office is quite reasonable in brokerage fees, some of the couriers not so much. I once bought a product from the US, it was $10 for the product, no tax or duties but, DHL nicked me $50 (their minimum) in brokerage fees.

    Customs Duty

    I believe it does come via the USPS. I hope it works out OK. Of course, one never knows. The amount I order each time is low, and I am not a company, so everything should work out OK, but it can always change. This is the first time for film but I have ordered other items overseas and not been killed by customs duties. If it does happen I will know better next time.

    It really depends on the film, I tend to order online a lot more often than not, my local Samys is more expensive than online.
    I order in bulk so shipping is somewhat economical. B&H Has pretty good prices, and I've always gotten fresh film.
    Everybody has a photographic memory, some just don't have film.

    I buy my Portra 160 from B&H...5 roll pack of 35mm-35exp is $30.

    This film is worth the cost to me. I like Portra 400 too, but it's cost is a little too high for me; I have learned to love MAX 400 and Superia 400.

    sounds about right.
    make sure it is cold LOL

    i know someone who
    used to deliver thousands of dollars of "cold pro flm" from a store to another
    pretty much all the time ... (the stores were a few hours away from eachohter)

    the film basically baked in a 110ºF van for the drive 3+ hours ...
    ( the drive included a rest area when the driver napped ... )

    don't bother with the pro film, get consumer film
    unless you wet process it yourself, or send it to a lab that will wet process it for you or need to have "bragging rights"
    these days the prints are all done with the dreaded numericalizer and tweeked ... \\

    so in the end does it really matter ??

    (KOKO jacked up all their prices ( as they always do ) a while back
    in just a few years b/w sheet film had nearly doubled in price ... i can't afford it anymore)

    I have to second Mark's post. I just got a bulk loader on ebay and my next film order will be 100ft roll and some cassettes. Both Freestyle and B+H carry bulk film. There are also videos on youtube that demonstrate how to use a bulk loader properly.

    Houston Camera Exchange keeps their black and white film in the refrigerator, too.

    Ask them the price on Provia 400x.
