Fuji announced at the end of last month that it will be increasing the prices of some of its film, paper and chemicals. The most important for us is an increase of 4% to 5% for color sheet film an dan increase of 19% to 20% for black and white sheet film. This information comes from a Fuji press release dated 12/26/05. It may only be available in Japanese bu tfor those who can read it see it at http://www.fujifilm.co.jp/news_r/nrj1454s.html. This is the price to distributors and dealers ... no indication of exactly how much it will impact the end user.
Let's NOT start another oh woe is us thread over their cited reasons ... the advance in digital imaging and the rise in silver and crude oil prices.
