    I waste a lot of paper when printing whatever the film so it doesn't really matter to me. LOL.

    I just don't see a lot of close substitutes in any marketplace being able to charge a 50% premium. Hopefully Kodak thrives with their strategy.

    I wonder how the prices compare in the UK where, strangely enough, some Ilford product appears to be more expensive than the same Ilford product is in the USA.

    The photographic distribution system is in a fractured state - particularly with respect to product from the two big "colour" film producers. IMHO, the largest benefit we might see from Kodak Alaris, if they are successful, would be an improvement to Kodak distribution.

    I live in France and Canada, and use Tri-X and FP4. I can buy Tri-X, made outside the EU, in New York, across the Atlantic, as cheap or cheaper here in France than in North America.
    FP4, made within the EU, in England, 400 miles away, is much cheaper in New York than here in France.
    Positively weird.
    So, I buy my Tri-X here in France as I need it, and I get enough FP4 from Adorama to last me 'till I'll be back in North America the next time.

    Prices are affected by taxes. In the UK "Value Added Tax" at 20% is added to give the final price the consumer pays.

    This is surprising... at least for sheet film, I bought as much as I could in the USA, because it was soooooo cheap compared to France!

    Better than the pricing Fuji adopted
    $6.50 for Acros 135?

    Gee and I was hoping for a possible return of Plus X and Panatomic X. I guess I can keep dreaming for now.

    Wow I wonder how this can happen???. I think we have been here before. Another poster buying Ilford and Kodak in France seems to have the same puzzle to solve as well

    There is no puzzle really.
