    Hmm. It could possibly be this: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...odachrome.html

    Or they are just incorrectly pricing it because B&H has it for 8.50

    Well, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say that price is for a brick or pack - I don't know, say 5? Take a look at their pricing in general for slide film and it would appear that way: http://store.uniquephoto.com/e/index...nufacturer=138

    The description needs work to clarify, if what I think is true.

    I have used Unique photo as my main film vendor for over 20 years. I pick up the phone and telephone them when I want to order. I have found their film prices across the board to be very similar to B&H and Adorama and less than Calumet. I have never placed much emphasis on their website, and actually I find their website to be difficult due to lack of information on film products.

    Oh man, I just checked. $109.00 for one 36 exposure roll of Kodachrome 64. I am all for Capitalism...but come on...

    I knew that the Federal Reserve and no backing of paper money was a bad idea. Dang you Woodrow Wilson! *angrily shakes fist*

    It's a good idea.
    Step 1: Price Kodachrome really high for no apparent reason.
    Step 2: Kodachrome users freak out thinking this is a sign of the end times (i.e. last production run of the film remaining stocks being sold out) and buy it en masse at the high prices.
    Step 3: Profit!

    Something wrong with the website prices, surely? (I don't think they'll sell many 36 exp Ektachrome at over $130, either!!)

    Why not phone them, before anyone dies of shock! I'm in the UK, and the best price at the moment (process included) is the equivalent of less than $12There are warnings of a price rise, but that would be understandable as there surely can't be any profit at $12 a time.

    I think those are probably multiple roll packs, and somehow the fact got missed on the web site, they have a roll of Fuji Superia 400 CH, 135 x 12 exposure roll for $18.90 and a 135x24 exposure for $9.25 (huh?) and and a 50 pack of 24 exposure rolls of the same film for $74.50 or $1.49 per roll. You would have to be smokin' some really weird stuff in order to buy the single 12 exposure rolls in that case. Now if those are 5 or 10 packs, then it would make a lot more sense. Some films are labelled as multiple roll packs, and some are not, which is why it's a little confusing.
