Could be several reasons. Like we got a good deal on film. I have a dealer 
that sells Provia 100 to professional account holders (that is, newspapers 
and other big accounts that pay well over $20,000 a year for film) for 
$3.50 a roll, min. order $100. I hate to rub it in, but people have asked 
what's the difference between pros and amateurs. Here's one of them. I wish 
I used slide film at work!

Why would I pay over-priced rates overseas?
