    I guess price increases on film are to be expected given the current photographic landscape, just that a $2.09 increase seemed a little steep. Wish I had stocked up a bit more a few months back. Luckily I have plenty of 4x5 to last me a while.

    Speaking of availability, Velvia 50 is pretty slim with almost all the major vendors in 35mm and 4x5. Medium format seems to be widely available. By the way, thanks for the tip on Freestyle, I'll have to check them out.

    Oh, wow. News flash: Velvia 50/36 is double that price+a bit here in Australia.
    What's your beef?

    Every time I go back to buy new chemicals, the price always is higher. Hence I am not surprised that Velvia's price went up. Since it is a Fuji color product be thankful that they did not discontinue it. At least in the color realm Kodak is doing the heavy lifting. <<Insert anti-Fuji rant here rather than the usual anti-Kodak crap from the "I am boycotting Kodak because ..." loony mob.>>

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I see no price changes at my end of the world.


    It is still cheaper (and better) than digital. I'm not concerned.
