I've been on APUG for 8 years, and we've been having these discussions since inception. Film and paper costs a bit more (so does food and gasoline), but I'm using more or less the same materials. Gear prices go up and down and vary depending on what it is. Leicas and Hassies are fairly pricey, but Mamiyas and Minoltas are dirt cheap. Well, except for the Mamiya rangefinders. I still can't get over how enlargers can't be given away in some cases, but a good 4 blade easel will cost you a couple of hundred dollars!
