I recently sold a Digilux 2 cable release to a nice gentleman in the
hinterlands of Manitoba. The release cost $69. A competitor wanted something
like $65 to ship it to him. I shipped it for $3, par avion, insured. All I
had to do was walk to my little Louisville post office and fill out a little
customs form, and put it inside (with my standard perk--the Leica microfiber
lens cleaning cloth) and off she went.

Once more I just came up against the shipping US to Canada problem and a
business that isn't interested in accommodating their customers

I wanted a collar to slip into my Arca Ball Head when it has the 8x10 on it
to prevent "slippage" while it's being carried.

I found Kirk Enterprises makes the one I had seen in the past. Just the
thing - $24.95. Well,  a week after placing the order they got back to me -
shipping via Fedex would be $23.40 - this is for what must be a bout a 2oz
piece of plastic. (on top of which, based on past experience, Fedex will
charge upwards of $20.00 to collect $2.25 in tax).

When contacted, they aren't interested in shipping via USPS Air Mail

So, anyone else know who makes such a gizmo - or who retails the Kirk one
(otherwise, I'm happy to do without...)
