    The Sinking Pound ...

    In case you were not aware, the British Pound has been falling sharply in value recently, especially against the US Dollar. From around $2.00 a few months ago, it's now hovering around $1.60. This means that our products have fallen in price to US customers by about 20% and by smaller amounts in some other countries. So the worldwide financial crisis could have an up side for some!
    Regards,
    Richard.

    Silver has been falling, too. Hopefully this will translate to fewer price increases in b/w film products across the industry.

    I was looking at your website and that paper flasher is really cool. Are they in stock?

    Regular gasoline was $2.04 per gallon this morning. Down another 5 cents from yesterday. Spending less on gas means I can spend more on my G.A.S.! Yeeeehaaaaaw!

    So is this the revised cost of the paper flasher to US based people... 63.83 pounds x 1.6 = $102.13 - 20%= $81.70 plus shipping??

    No, it's an effective price decrease due to the exchange rate - we haven't actually changed our GBP prices. The US$ equivalent cost has dropped from approx $128 to approx $102. We still charge you 63.83 GBP (plus shipping), your card provider charges you the equivalent in US$ which is now less than it used to be. Hope that clarifies it.

    The pound being approx. 1.5X the dollar is what the value was for years before the runaway inflation the USA has had since 2000, and particularly since 2004.

    Sometimes one gets lucky...we brought some Aussie dollars over to the States earlier in the year when an Aussie dollar was at a high of 86 US cents. It helped to buy a little bigger house (the old one was getting tight with three 11-year olds!). Now an Aussie dollar is only worth 52 US cents. Quite a difference.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
