Trix is comparable in GBP already Ja and USA prices have been cheap.

The only Trix I have ever bought is the 220 but it has gone years ago.

HP5+ is only cheaper in bulk

I use rebrands and cine film already some short ends some decades old.

Your increases are Kodak Alaris Yen %s Eastman Kodak upped all the cine materials and film 15% in Jan14. Alaris should have had agreements with EK when they spun off so more than 15% is possibly either supply chain risk management or KA greed or both.

Resellers might reduce stock holdings and increase margins.

So Id expect some panic buying of film.

Lemmings are us.
