I was sent an email the other day from one of the UK’s biggest, if not THE biggest photo wholesaler, giving an idea of the film price increases expected from Jan 1st. All I can say is that if you like film, and you can.. stock up now – quick!!
Below is a table of the expected increases from Kodak from the 1st of January, no doubt Fuji will follow soon! I assume that if it’s going up in the UK there will a similar increase world wide, I assume this has come from Kodak headquarters in New York as I note that color is missing it’s UK “U”.
|Film Type||Percentage of Increase|
|Color Reversal Film||17-19%|
|Color Negative 35mm||18-21%|
|Color Negative 120||24-25%|
|Color Negative Sheet Film||19-21%|
|Professional BW 35mm||16-19%|
|Professional BW 120/220||16-52%|
|Professional BW Sheet Film||9-19%|
|Professional BW Bulk||16-18%|
|Color Plus 35mm||29%|
