    I can't believe it's not cheaper to buy it there considering how much it is to ship international and that you're in the area of FUJI ...

    I don't know but I'm just surprised you can't get it there and make it worth the price. Ask an APUGer from that area or something. Call a few labs there. Call Fuji themselves and ask where they have suppliers?

    Just a suggestion.

    At $2 a sheet for a 50 sheet box, that's $100 + $23 for Priority Flat Rate box.

    Here in Japan, the cheapest I can find is Amazon.co.jp, for 7800 yen per 20 sheets (with free Prime shipping). which amounts to like $195 for 50 sheets. Still quite a bit cheaper.

    If I can get 2x 50 sheet box, that's $223 for 100 sheets vs. 39,000 yen (~$390), making it MUCH cheaper.

    Amazon!! No no, an actual photo store, Amazon is always overpriced... Find a photo store, I once found 50 photo stores in India for a guy, just with google, try googling "photography lab, [city], Japan

    See what you get.

    Nope, like with the US, Amazon now will mostly list the cheapest prices you can find, if not directly through their warehouses, through one of their partners.

    A 20-sheet box of Provia 100F goes for ~8500 yen at some of the major camera chains (e.g. Bic Camera).

    Buy new like the rest of us? It's 74$/20 sheets from Freestyle. If you can afford to go to Japan and shoot 4x5, you can afford 40 sheets. Yes, it sucks at close to 4$/pop, I know.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
