I might pull the trigger on another 100 rolls of Tri-X / 120, there is a big difference between $379 from Freestyle and $499 from B&H and we all know that price difference won't last.
The last time I bought Tri-X roll film it was $1.35 a roll for 120.
$4.99 is cheap. In Melb we group buy from B&H, and it's generally +15% on cost of top of that to split shipping in a $1k order. Which becomes basically $5.75/roll, which is still cheap.
Local price is $7.15/roll at Vanbar online I just checked.. which is surprising I was expecting to be over $10. At Michael's in the CBD it will be.
$7.15 is real cheap here now that I think about it.. they must have dropped the price... because Delta 100 in 120 is $11 a roll.
120 Velvia 50 is $17/roll
120 Portra 160 is $10/roll
120 Provia 400X is $27/roll.
35mm Provia 400X 36exp is $42.21/roll.
And you complain about a few cents increase in the U.S...
$7.15 Local vs $4.99 B&H
$27 Local vs $6.29 B&H
B&H must have had it listed as a mistake for a few days. I see the price is back down to 3.99. That's much better than 4.99!!! This is great!!
Good to know that it went back down--I stocked up from Adorama anyways. :)
I didn't mean to complain about the price increase per se but the huge overnight spike was shocking. It was strange to see BH selling a very popular film for $1 more than their competitors.
Well it's good to know that this was false and I hope to continue purchasing tri-x.
Checked B&H this evening. Seems it's back to $3.99.
My local store has 120 at $4.85, up about a dollar from a month ago but still not too bad.
