    Maybe not in absolute terms but relative to wages and salaries I am sure that there were periods up to quite recently when film prices fell relative to income. Then came the quite sudden and dramatic rise in both film and paper from about 2007/8 which was put down to dramatic increases in material prices, the silver price being cited as the main culprit. As I recall it this was certainly the substance of Simon Galley's post on prices.

    With a drop as large as this I wonder if we can expect to see Simon posting anything in this thread?

    I'd expect the prices to stay down for quite some time before I'd expect to see lower prices on anything made from silver. Who is to say it won't go back up in a month or so?

    You never know what the results are when you are investing in the stock market or purchasing precious metals. Its the game of chance you take.
