When you all buy across the border isn't there a huge import tax? I once sold a Minolota SLR (film) to a guy in Canada. He was supposed to pay the import tax and then balked when it was about $200. He just didn't pay it and I got stuck with it. It basically negated any reason to have sold the camera to someone in Canada. After that I never sold outside the US again.

There are NO customs duties or tariffs on camera equipment bought in USA and shipped to Cananda.

There is provincial and federal sales tax which can be between 5% and 12+% depending on which province you live in.

Not sure how long ago you are talking, 20-30 years ago before NAFTA?
