    I'm little surprised that the greatest percentage increase is in film, where Fuji is quasi-monopolist (in colour material at least).

    PS Nothing wrong in that.

    Not a problem in itself , other than it must tend to reduce overall consumption, sales and profitability, which may in turn start (or continue) something of a spiral of rising prices. And, for color at least, the ongoing concern of availability of processing services or home chemical kits.

    (At least my own freezer holds enough to last me many years, so I'll just keep replenishing stock as it get used ).
    Yup.That's been the basic mechanism for at least the last 3-5 years with what's left of demand steadily shrinking against higher film/chemistry/processing prices and limited commercial processing. It's likely not going to be a good year for film.

    WAR!

    Damn this oppression! Our only hope is to invade Japan. Yes, APUG should declare war on Japan.

    We shall go on to the end of the roll.
    We shall fight in Tokyo,
    We shall fight on the gelatin and paper backing,
    We shall fight with DEVELOPING confidence and FIXING strength in the labs.
    We shall defend our Velvia, Provia, Astia and Acros prices whatever the cost may be.
    We shall fight on contact sheets, we shall fight on the light table,
    We shall fight in the darkrooms and in the film fridges.
    We shall fight in the changing bags,
    We shall never surrender.

    Who's with me?!

    Well, my point was "compared to double the price, or similar".

    The Acros hasn't been the most expensive film out there anyway (in fact, it has been one of the cheaper ones produced by the 'big two').

    I just supported the US economy by ordering $200 worth of Acros from B&H to Europe, be nice.

    Their 120 acros 100 is way undercutting even Fomapan 100 and holga film on B&H. $3.20 versus $4-4.59 for Kodak B&W. From a pure business perspective, it has room to increase price and still be a solid contender, especially given the quality. I think acros 100 is the best 100 speed film available right now. (but I mostly use tmy2 since I think a faster film is more practical for mostly handheld medium format shooting)
