Probably most of what Freestyle sells is imported into the US from a non-NAFTA country. Maybe someone from Canada can say if they are charged customs duties for Rollei or Efke film, but not for Kodak film.

Canadian taxes and customs brokerage fees may still apply. There are many people here from Canda who doubtless know more about this than I.

Anyway, my point to the poster who said he was screwed by Freestyle was simply that he wasn't screwed by Freestyle.
And quite right you are.
