I don't do that.

It's bad for those industry players who actually are trying hard to survive as film manufacturers. And I need them to survive.

If they don't, my brand new Aristo tubes will be no more than a pretty aquamarine-colored mood light in a very strange-looking table lamp...

Posted by me on the subject of price-hoarding from this thread:

"And the [Ilford] price increase? Not a problem. In fact, I'm not even going to alter my purchasing cycles to try to "beat" it. I will simply continue to purchase what I need, when it's needed, at whatever price helps to provide for its continued availability.

"To do otherwise would be, I believe, both short-sighted AND truly shooting myself in the foot..."
