    My first thought was "again?", my second was remembering how low film prices actually are compared to 10 years ago and the decrease in demand. If it keeps film alive, so be it.

    Better than coughing up three grand every couple of years.

    Still feeling good with just over 600 sheets of HP5+ and about 300 rolls of Tri-X 120mm in the freezer.

    These things happen, staff get pay rises, property prices increase, that needs to be paid for. Almost everything goes up in price, that which does not, you need to question how it's being made. Sure, I can buy stuff from Indonesia for pennies, but it's the factory workers who pay for that. The major film makers are Kodak, Fujifilm, and Ilford, all in first world nations, paying proper salaries and with realistic costs.

    I want a pay rise this year, so do Fujifilm workers, you can either increase your sales, or charge more for your product. Products which are not in dramatic growth will need to go up in price.

    It's called inflation. Was a box of color film really that much cheaper thirty years ago given its percent of one's overall income at the time? I don't think so.

    As a student I paid roughly double the price in retail stores 10 years ago pre-internet than I pay now when I buy online (no more local stores selling film, especially b&w)...

    Very true. I gave up on shooting film last month and have already spent close to $750 on digital gear. I know for certain that next year will be much, much more expensive. Digital is definitely not cheaper than film.

    A shame that I could not get the quality I need out of my film gear. I still come here out of force of habit.
