Hi all,

I have been trying to expand my horizons and view as many titles as I can on film, and in order to do so, I have to constantly buy and sell. This, however, poses a problem as Canada Post is extremely expensive to ship overseas. I am hence interested in knowing how many Canadians are on here so as to try and see if I can get any interests, since shipping within Canada isn't at all expensive. Thanks again to you all [Smile] !!!

Hi Terry,

my bad, I totally forgot and only thought of Winbert, who's also in Ontario. Guess that just means it's only three of us on here [Frown] ? That sucks as I was hoping to sell some 16mm titles but got discouraged with trying States buyers as Canada Post has got ridiculous rates [Frown] ... Oh well, guess I'll go the good ol' ebay or Kijiji route :/... Thanks again [Big Grin] !!!

Hey Elyas,
I'm from the US but am in the Montreal area for the next three years. You aren't kidding about shipping. I've lost many an eBay auction because of knowing I'd have to factor in a huge shipping bill. I actually just got a digital projector and am doing a little downsizing in my 16mm/Super 8 collection. I was just going to compile a list and see if a guy here was interested (actually a pretty big older film viewing community here) because I have no interest in doing the eBay or shipping/customs thing.

Hi guys,

glad to hear there's a few of us on here, I'll run ideas on some prints I'd like to sell by you and hope to hear from y'all if you have prints for sale as well. Thanks and have a great weekend [Big Grin] !!!

Hello Jeffrey,

man, am I glad to hear of a neighbor on the forum [Smile] !!! I am getting into 16mm BIG and was wondering if you have any prints so we could swap to watch [Smile] ? Also, I have some lamps, reel storage cans and lenses if you think you'd be interested [Smile] ... Thanks again and hope you're having a great week [Big Grin] !!!
