For several years before Eastman Portrait Film was produced in Canada, the Canadian Edition of Studio Light reprinted the articles written to place before United States photographers the merits of this modern negative-making medium. So to speak, the way was being paved for the Canadian appearance of Film, but we had no idea of the effective paving that had been done.

No photographer in Canada, to whom our demonstrators have shown Film, has failed to appreciate its merits, and seldom, too, has he failed to show conviction by an order for Film and Equipment.

Despite advertising conditions, referred to later, the sale of Eastman Portrait Film in Canada for September will equal more than half the sale of Seed R Plates. This showing is all the more noteworthy, in view of the handicap imposed by the shortage of Equipment. Our customers, who have been delayed through lack of accessories, will please be as indulgent as possible, for we need hardly labour the point that our travelling men are not encouraged when they find that the friends they won.

For Film are still using Plates, through lack of Equipment.

Every method of meeting the demand satisfactorily is being used to the full and no effort is being spared to overcome the handicap, despite which Film has gone so nicely. It is no satisfaction to a photographer to be told that we are doing all we can do to meet his requirements in this regard, but it is none the less true that we can hardly be held responsible for the present worldwide shortage of help and material of every kind. So clean-cut is the superiority of Film over Plates, that a very considerable number of photographers have ordered real Film Equipment, preferring the Film Holders to the Sheaths and Kits, which adapt Plate Equipment for use with Film. This, after all, is the most satisfactory course, for the cost is more than set off by the ability to obtain results far beyond the capacity of Plates, in a straightaway and certain method of working.
