I have not bought any IP film because of the price. I have thought, though, that it's really not out of line. When I bought my Wifa a SX-70 in 1973, film was about $8 for a pack of ten, and flash bars were about $2 for ten flashes. So, it came to $1 a photo if you used flash. Fast forward to today, and think what those prices would be! Makes the IP film packs look reasonable.
