Film photographers need to reevaluate the value to them of the products they use. The huge economies of scale are no more. If you value using today's products you are going to have to change your mindset that says cheaper prices are always better prices.
Beware of the law of unintended consequences. If you make the mistake of confusing the cost of something with its value, then you run the risk of engaging in a race to the bottom where everybody loses.
Remember, the cheapest possible film with the least possible impact on your budget is the film that no longer exists...
