    Chemistry in Canada

    Hi,

    I've recently moved to Winnipeg from the states. Does anyone develop their own C41 here in town? Can anyone please recommend a good source for C-41 chems (kodak or otherwise)? Any input is appreciated!

    My recommendation would be B&H. They have very reasonable and fast shipping to Canada. I found the Jobo/Tetenal pwer kit works well enugh for what I need - and it can be shipped across boarder.
    I spend some time in Winnipeg, and have not seen a lot of chemicals in the camera stores except, understandably, the very basic B+W ones.
    I bought some film at one of the stores and they were surprised that I shot it, and very surprised I could develop it.
    I read Beau photo in Vancouver ships but have not used them.

    I second Jeff L. I gave up on freestyle a long time ago due to their unreasonable shipping charges. B&H even has the ability to pre pay the taxes and duties.

    In Halifax, I order through Henry's. We have 2 local ones here, and they can order in with their normal shipment. No shipping charges.

    You should compare the prices. Henry's does not give anything away.

    I agree with the others. While living in Toronto, Kamloops BC, and in a small town north of Winnipeg, I almost always ordered everything from Freestyle or B&H. Even with shipping and duty, it still usually worked out cheaper than buying in Canada (plus there is usually a greater selection at your disposal.) Things may have changed in the last few years since I've been there, but I doubt it. In any event, it pays to shop around and compare prices (including shipping).

    Don't get me wrong; I prefer to buy in Canada. It's just getting past that bull's-eye on my head as I walk in the store.

    Mostly for me it's the ability to get things in a couple of days, and not having to pay for shipping. And getting liquids shipped is nearly impossible. And now with the dollar falling, I find the cost differences to be not so great. It's not like I order so much C41 that it makes it worth it to deal with powders and pay for shipping and HST, and quite often, brokerage fees. I get my RA4 from the local lab.

    That being said, I AM in the market for a couple of C41 packets to try, and some crystal archive... but, beau photo's pricelist is offline.

    The Tetenal C-41 kits they sell are the liquid chems, not the powder. Prices are on par with Freestyle.
