    If you can afford 50 rolls at $3/roll...No one said this would be getting any cheaper. How long will 50 rolls last you?

    50 cents on a $2.99 product is a 16.7% increase. Considering that the annualized rate of inflation in the US is 3.5%, that is almost 5 times the rate of inflation.

    And your solution is? Though down now from late summer highs, silver still isn't giveaway priced. Less selection, higher prices, lower demand seem to be the parameters facing film manufacturers/consumers. Welcome to the new reality.

    I never liked Fuji color negs, Kodak are technically much better; however I prefer Fuji slides than Kodak ones.

    And it certainly isn't related one bit to the exchange rate trend of Dollars vs. Yen .... oh, no, can't be, since such an explanation wouldn't fit well enough into the "(slide) film is dying" meme

    Pull the other one. What accounts for Kodak price hikes?

    There is a strong perception that 5x4 sheet film will be the first facing the axe by Fuji. There is just not enough demand there on a global scale. It's one reason I did not invest in 5x4 by 'looking into the future'. I don't see what there is to argument about Fuji vs Kodak in this thread. Both have their merits and will travel well, it's falling demand in the film market that is causing more concern.

    I love me some Acros and will be sad if it gets more expensive but frankly, it's crazy-cheap in 120 at the moment compared to everything else of even remotely comparable quality (TMX, Delta-100). What I don't understand is why it's so expensive in 4x5 and why Fuji doesn't sell 50-sheet packs of any of their films.
