Just put your items in the cart and you then get a total with shipping and all duties&taxes.

BTW, we live in the same country so if you ever decide to order from B&H we can share the shipping costs...

The customs fees and shipping costs might kill that bird ... you better check that before you order. Depending on the country, there can also be a bit of work to track down and actually get your package too if it comes from outside of EU.

I am a bit tempted to get some CHS II in 6.5x9 size, we'll see - need to find a camera for my Linhof holders first.

I just did that - put ten boxes in the chart and the amount topped up by a further 121,85 USD from duties and taxes alone!

Sure, great idea. I will let you know should I ever decide to do shopping over at B&H.

Yes, locally all the exotics (Kodak and Fuji Pro, Cinestill, Ektachrome) are $15-$19 at Beau, Leos and Kerrisdale.

However, there are several films for less than $10 at Kerrisdale Cameras.

Consumer films,
Kodak Gold 3x24 for $19
XP2 (24) $9

Surprisingly,
FP4 (24) $8
FP4 (36) $9

I agree that's "pretty well no..." in comparison with the overall market selection.

Here is a snapshot of the film wall today (12/24) at the Burnaby store:

Just buy 35mm film in bulk and load your 36 exp cassette at home. It feels sweet on top of being cheaper.

It is already available in sheet film. 35mm and 120 are coming a bit later.
This film is coated on their modernised coating machine in Marly (former Ilford Imaging Switzerland, bought by Adox in 2015).
You can get it in all standard and non-standard sheet film sizes:
https://www.fotoimpex.com/films/sheet-films/
Even in all ULF formats up to 20x24" / 50x61cm!!
And that all over the year (not only once a year like the Ilford ULF programme). You make an order and then it will be made for you.

Cheers, Jan
That are indeed excellent news!!
It is one of my favourite BW films. It belongs to the best ISO 100 films with classic emulsion technology. Very good detail rendition, wonderful tonality, works perfectly in combination with lots of different developers, excellent price performance ratio.
The timing is perfect for me, because my CHS 100 II stock is down to about a dozen rolls. I am looking forward to buy this film from the new production.

No, fortunately not......
4x5", 5x7" and 8x10" are available. And the other sheet film formats can be ordered and then will be made for the customer.

Sorry, you are correct. There are no roll film formats in stock.

Yep. But hey Nokton, what cameras are you using again? 'cause I'm asuming you made the decision to eschew 4X5 for very specific reasons.

Don't know how many here follow the Nicos youtube Film News show, but sometimes I think he's on to something by dropping medium format and barbelling his shooting between 35mm M's and Large Format. Then I come to my senses and don't want to run another series of GAS sessions and instead just shoot the stuff I have. Maybe one day I'll go in another direction... but not now.

I need at least 40 rolls per year to call it as photography, not a hipsta status on forums with three rolls per year developed, scanned in the lab.
But if I'll spend 400 USD for film, it is quit call for my wife. Because after taxes and conversion to Canuckistanians it is something like 700 CAD.

So, it is simple choice at ten bucks per roll. Stay single or quit from film.
Are you, guys, single?
The rollfilm sells in the EU for the equivalent of around $5,50. Lately I’ve been buying a mocha latte on the way to work each morning for what translates to $6,70. I drink it within ten minutes and convert it to a liquid that’s quite literally flushed down the toilet within a couple hours.
In Sweden a Leica M-10-P (body only) costs what equals to around $9100,00. You could take more than fifty-nine-thousand photos with this film, before you got to the price of the digital camera body. Of course they need to be developed too - but the digital camera also needs hard disks and a computer - and a lens.

Anyways - to address other points in the thread, on sites in Europe the rollfilm is simply marked as currently ‘sold out’ rather than discontinued. I’d wait a while before making assumptions based on one store’s listing.

Perfect reply.

That said, we all have our cut-offs for our various vices. I’m feeling lucky to be down to film, fancy coffee and one or two others.

Not for sale in the U.S. yet? You can buy the 4x5 stuff, which interests me, at Fotoimpex.

Which size are you looking for? Their web page says "35mm and 120 films are more complex and we are still in the optimizing process," so I assume you're after the larger size? Hopefully they can catch up.

This looks like a B&H listing problem, nothing more.
The film is definitely available in countless sheet film sizes (a friend of mine just got his shipment in 4x5" last week):
https://www.fotoimpex.com/films/sheet-films/

Adox has clearly explained that this newly produced film will come first in sheet film (because sheet film is a bit easier to made).
And later 35mm and 120 will follow.
