    The most sold film products are single use cameras I believe Kodak was very strong in that market. So from a purely marketing perspective Kodak beats Fuji with single use cameras. KA also sells super cheap films in some supermarket chains in Germany and Austria.
    After looking at online offerings from UK retailers I have to say that the price for film in the UK is utterly and completely nuts.

    Xmas how many rolls of 5222 do you shoot per year? More than a 1000 ft more than 2000ft or less than either.

    But in some of the new episodes they've been saying other things, I think maybe destroy was an alternate? I know the metal men (forget name) say "delete" lol

    Thank you for the link. I think Steve'ss post is very interesting and relevant to the discussion of film prices. It's often not the film mfg who increases the prices but the retailer. The mfg get's the flack though.

    I don't shoot 5222 all the time depends on cloud cover in total I use

    minimum in summer is 400 foot a month.
    max 1200 foot a month

    in winter can drop to 200 foot a month

    but Ive still got a stash of

    Agfa APX400S (it was cheap)
    HP5 cine
    Ru cine

    and some expired bulk Formapan

    Occasionally I buy expired 135 loads.

    So eg I use PET APX400S on dull days cause it flares and light pipes HP5 or 5222 bright sun...
    with multi coated and single coated lenses respectively

    Lots of people use cine mono some use cine colour.

    Sorry no easy records of film type used per day/year
    Just fridges without food and cupboards of filing.

    I hope this doesn't happen in the US and I hope the Australians can find a good retailer that doesn't charge as much.

    X-mas thank you for the info I admit I would have thought of a much lower number, although 36 to 215 Rolls a month is/was quite common in certain areas of photography.

    Stone the price increase was made by a retailer not by EK or KA.

    My post quoted the APUG rule for this category. Just because an Australian blog engaged in rumors and speculation about the price of Kodak film, whether for Australia only, Vanbar only, or whatever, doesn't mean it isn't rumor and speculation.
