    Unless its a state law? I know in CT if I'm at the store and the price says $5.50 and I get to the register and it says $7 they HAVE to give it to me for the advertised price, not just out of courtesy but by law.

    Not so sure. If something is supposed to be $500 and by mistake some clerk labels it $5.00 I'm pretty sure they do not have to sell it to you for $5.00. Can you show me the law?

    Most of what I'm finding shows this:

    “From a legal standpoint, a price is merely an offer, not an obligation.”

    Retailers may agree to give you a discount on a price error out of courtesy but I do not think there's a law that says they must sell it to you.

    A bit of Googling indicates that Connecticut does have legislation that requires retailers to pay a small "bonus" to customers who pick an item off a shelf and then, when the item is scanned, it turns out that the scan price and the shelf price differ.

    I once bought a bike, it was listed as $500 on the rack, when they rung it up it came up as $800, the shop called to confirm and in fact it was an $800 bike, they sold it to me for $500

    I dunno if it's just rhumor, and no one is going to sue for the price of a miss stickered price (in most cases) but I know it at least viewed that way here. And when I worked retail the bosses always told us this was true because they were always worried about us miss-pricing things..

    At the current prices for 400X in Oz and NZ, it should be well stocked for the next 50 years!
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Velvia 100F and 50 and 100 are basically the same price give/take. There is one store that sells 50 at $32US and the other two at $16US, haha.
    Yes, they still advertise Fuji Astia The last time I went for an event due to the camera club they had a members night. They had a 100F roll of Provia 100F but it was like a few years expired, they also had APS film. Mind you the price was still half the NZ price which is still more than fresh film in the USA.

    Digital stuff and modern lenses etc are not that bad, maybe 20% more than the USA. In the film days, a F100 Nikon was $2200US at the time when the USD was stronger and a used one still went for $1600US. This was 2006, I got a used one off a Photography Forum from the USA.

    But, do you guys make more money than us? it seems like you couldn't have a sustainable economy if everything were 20%-500% more expensive than elsewhere...

    We do have a minimum wage law that is about $10US/hr but the NZD is quite strong, in the past this amounts to about $8US/hr. The average wage here is $55k USD a year. But I am sure you guys the food etc are cheaper. For us here a sandwich or a coffee could be $5US and $3US respectively. Average lunch I guess in a cafe might be $10-15US ex the drink. Our sales tax is 15%. Income tax ~33%.
