I never liked Fuji color negs, Kodak are technically much better; however I prefer Fuji slides than Kodak ones.
exchange rate trend of Dollars vs. Yen .... oh, no, can't be, since such an explanation wouldn't fit well enough into the "(slide) film is dying" meme :whistling:
There is a strong perception that 5x4 sheet film will be the first facing the axe by Fuji. There is just not enough demand there on a global scale. It's one reason I did not invest in 5x4 by 'looking into the future'. I don't see what there is to argument about Fuji vs Kodak in this thread. Both have their merits and will travel well, it's falling demand in the film market that is causing more concern.
try paying $7 per roll of 120 Acros and $.50 will look like peanuts ;)
btw, Acros is $3.20 at BH
I love me some Acros and will be sad if it gets more expensive but frankly, it's crazy-cheap in 120 at the moment compared to everything else of even remotely comparable quality (TMX, Delta-100). What I don't understand is why it's so expensive in 4x5 and why Fuji doesn't sell 50-sheet packs of any of their films.
