Post by nikonr10 » Sun Jan 13, 2013 2:53 pm

Hello when to go see my super 8 dealer for film ,He told me that Kodak have put the price of tri X up to around 27 euros ,
So will not be selling it after he runs out ? so up in price by 10 euros ,

Is Kodak killing B/W Tri x as well ,

Who would that be? Euro 27 is excessive.

Better check for super8dealer on eBay :)

From the east just as easy as from around the corner.

And why do you ask us if your dealer is going to quit?
Kind regards,

André

Didn't you keep track of Kodak announcements. As replicated here and on schmalfilm.de

There isn't much choice beyond Kodak. All other material comes from Wittner and I doubt dealers will be getting a decent wholesale discount. The world is a village so why would they share their profitmargin.
Kind regards,

Yes the world maybe a Village now but it's still along way to walk around ?
Maybe Adox can save who knows , still cheaper than kodak ? I can understand why people do not want to deal with Kodak after
100 D and how there pulled the plug after just two years , Still price of film is going up that sad part of it all .

Hi,
I suggest you buy Tri-x from another source. Buy from the USA and have it posted over. Kodak in the usa did put up the price of Tri-x, but its still on US$13.50. Find a friend in the USA and have them buy it and post it over to you in moderate quantities.
keep sourcing film!
