    Guess they truly are the only ones that don't think their prices are already too high

    Anyone have any old catalogs, or just recall prices for sheet films they paid in say, 1980s-90s? I'm curious to see prices now & then vs inflation.

    Someone on, I think, APUG said they found a 100-ft roll of 35mm Tri X with a sticker of $17.xx

    I have an Shutterbug magazine from Dec 2000 (not that old!) and 50 sheet boxes of 8x10 Tri-X were $109. Fifty sheets of TMY were $116--today they're $385. A 25 sheet box of 11x14 FP4+ was only $99.

    I would ask anyone on this board if they would like to go back to what they were earning 10-15 years ago?

    They aren't alone. My lab just told me that the E-6 Fuji film that they sell is going up by 12% (via Fuji) on the first.

    I'd also like my costs to be what they were 10-15 years ago too.
