Fuji Film Imaging announced the price raise last month.

B&W films : 15 - 21%
B&W papers : 10 - 20%
B&W chemicals : 10 - 30%

Is that known oversea ?
Any word on their colour papers?
No, it doesn't say anything about color papers.
I use fuji NPS for weddings. $2.49 in 120 @ b&h. The new pro S version that replaces it $3.75
35mm nps- $2.29imp. usa version discontinued.
35mm Pro 160 $3.99imp or $5.79usa
that's more than 10% here
I know what I want but I just don't know how to go about gettin' it.-Hendrix

Well with the wedding season comming I'm glad I have 10 bricks of it in the freezer!
That could make a difference in pricing to the client!
Hmm, I wonder if with this we might see a boost of the competition of Kodak's Pro lines? I wonder if the color print will trickle down to the consumer films eventually?
I guess this raise in price further cements me from ever trying their B&W films. I am quite satisfied with Kodak, Foma and Ilford so Fuji will just get me on the consumer print film I guess.
Is there any information on the color chrome films?
No, It doesn't say anything about color chrome films.

The renaming of NPZ to Pro 800Z and NPH to Pro 400H etc gave Fuji an excuse to raise prices dramatically a short while ago. Same film, higher price (unlike the two Pro 160 films, which are new films and are noticeably better than the films they replaced).
