Could have sworn the price was ~36, 2 days ago. Now B&H shows it as 39$. Gotta love these guys.
Please note: The maximum quantity allowed for the FUFP100CG45 -- FP-100C Professional Instant Color Film Glossy, ISO 100, 10 Exposures, 4 x 5" is “389”. Please select a smaller quantity.
It's 36 at adorama. b and h was always 39.
I see 39 at Adorama. The reason I think it was 36 at B&H is because I had 5 in my cart from a few days back, and the price was around 184$ if I remember correctly. However, since I can't prove this I could be entirely mistaken.
Yes, asshat B&H and Adorama both jacked the price from 36.95 a few days ago to 39.99 now. Thanks, profiteering scumbags! It's especially egregious on something they probably bought at closeout wholesale prices from Fuji to begin with.
There's also people (polastore) already scalping this stuff on ebay @ $50/box for those who don't know it's back again at (inflated) retail pricing for a short time.
Yep. I noticed all the same trends myself. Even considered buying 200 boxes to eventually sell at a higher price and then my integrity kicked in to remind me that maybe other people want a good deal and to be able to use the film too.
The part that angers me is the obvious profiteering some of the people do - completely based off of consumer ignorance and false hype.
Making a profit is the primary rule of capitalism isn't it?
Nothing to see here, just move along.
Let's get this back on track! Here's a test image from one of the 10 the packs of FP100C45 I got at the lower price.
(Photo of the print, using my D800 - my scanner is in transit from China. I had to tweak the D800 photo's colors a little, it wanted to mess with the gorgeously saturated print. This is pretty close to how the print looks in my hand.)
Here is the setup, using a Chamonix 045N2, a PA-45, and a Nikkor 300mm f/9 lens at about f/22 (I wanted enough DoF for the flower to be in focus.) (This is actually the setup for a tighter shot in landscape framing, but you get the point...)
