But my point was a marketing observation our happy snappers are buying rebadged Fuji 200 for two reasons it is in a Poundland (real cheap) chain shop and cheap.
The Ilford, Kodak and Fuji in the pharmacy few doors away will not be selling like it might otherwise sell. So the pharmacy chain may not restock with the same volume.
My circumstances are different I only use mono and buy 5222 (cine) cause it is about 50% of Ilford bulk and 25% of Kodak's bulk.
The distribution margins seem large and Fuji may need to dump excess production before exiting the market.
Agfa did the same as they went broke.
Im still shooting Agfa speed trap film I got about 2000 feet of it in '07.
Id suggest Kodak's management have fallen of the potty to sell into a saturated market you need to cut overheads from production to end user.
Eastman would not have recruited a bungee manager.
Fuji look like they are saying Sayonara.
5222 is an excellent product even if it were at a premium price, my Kodak all in one office printer does excellent gilee prints I bought it cause it was the cheapest scanner...
