    Kodak 4X5 B&W to be packaged in 10 sheet boxes (only)?

    See post number 16: http://www.apug.org/forum/index.php?...in-4x5.142983/

    Note that this information is shown to come from Kodak Alaris.

    I just saw this over there...Great for low volume users I suppose, for the rest, a real pain in the neck. More boxes to deal with, and undoubtedly a higher cost.

    I cannot fathom the rationale for such a pitiful quantity-per-box. At 10-per I think they make more money on the box than the contained film.

    They can sell more boxes of film this way.

    10 per box is dumb.

    Seems like they could fit 20 or more sheets no problem.

    Of course; some idiot bean counter convinced brain-dead Kodak that selling almost empty boxes was better.

    At least you come out even on your holders. I always wish Ilford sold 26 sheet boxes instead of 25 five sheet boxes! I guess I should not complain. Ten sheet boxes seems not only annoying, but wasteful.

    Yes, they've decided selling boxes is more profitable than selling film.

    As long as there is going to be a change, why not go back to the old way of 12, 24 and 144?

    Tonight, Keith Canham mentioned that, while Kodak is changing its standard catalog item size to 10 sheets for 4x5, he's been told he'll still be able to special order 50-sheet boxes. So, if any large volume users are really annoyed by the smaller quantity per box, they need only get together the minimum quantity and have Keith place an order with Kodak for them.
