where to buy in canada

I was looking into buying a battery holder for my kr but it will cost me at least $50.00 extra for delivery. Does anybody know where to buy in Canada.

You could also try Vistek in Toronto.

Also, McBain camera out west in Alberta.

Also, don't forget ebay, sometimes someone is selling exactly what you're looking for.

This website also has a Photographic Marketplace where you can put in your wants. I think you need to become a site supporter to put in a want but I'm not sure about that.

B&H now ships via Purolator and they collect Canadian taxes as well based on your province. My last few orders from them have been less than $10 shipping...

I can vouch for B & H. Depending on the shipping method you choose they will show you exactly what you pay for shipping, handling & taxes & duty as gregvassie says.

I needed a replacement flash tube for a monolight and I think their shipping was also less than $10. Even shipping a whole monolight unit to me cost less than $20. I placed the order on a Monday (I think) and it was at my doorstep around noon on Friday.

Also, I did a quick search on ebay, there are a number of third party battery holders available. They may be cheaper and not as well made in some cases but you could afford to buy 2 in case one breaks. Shipping from that side of the world averages about 3-4 weeks. (Personal experience)

Sorry to say, but when I bought mine I told them to throw it in, or I wasn't going to buy the camera.
