    15% Price Increase for Kodak Film

    Kodak "We have to contend with further increases in energy and raw material costs, and higher costs associated with lower volumes. Therefore, to remain a sustainable, viable business, the company is implementing a price increase for consumer and professional films."

    Per Amateur Photographer:

    I will gladly pay more than lose another line. We can continue fellow ostriches! D&Gs need not apply (doom and gloom'rs).

    As long as they don't can my Tri-X they can charge as much as they need to to stay in business.

    waah, TXP320 in 4x5" was US$59.99 for a box of 50 in 2010, and is now US$75.99. Ouch. I've just ordered 4 boxes and will be eating bread and dripping for a few weeks now...

    This sort of thing has been in play in Canada since Kodak.ca folded in 2005. Film, chemistry, paper handled by a shifting(and shifty)parade of distributors who jacked around price/accessibility. Created a lot of new business for Fuji.ca!

    they raise their prices once a year every year by 15% ...

    in 2001 i paid 65$ ( shipped ) for 100 sheets of tmx 4x5 film
    in 2011 i paid 135$ ( shipped ) for 100 sheets of tmx 4x5 film


    seems like business as usual ...

    as has been noted, better a price increase than the loss of Tri X.

    Fully agree I prefer the price increase to product loss as well

    Much cheaper than paying inflated eBay prices for a discontinued product. I might order another hundred rolls of Tri-X in 120 before Freestyle raises the price to where B&H has it...
