Wasn’t it just last week when Kodak said they were gonna stop producing colour reversal films? Now the British Journal of Photography confirms that there will be a 15% price increase for all remaining Kodak films on the market. When will Kodak stop bringing us sad news?
Kodak just keeps bringing us news to be bummed about. As BJP Online reports, a Kodak spokeswoman has confirmed the price hike on all their films still currently available.
“We have to contend with further increases in energy and raw material costs, and higher costs associated with lower volumes,” a Kodak rep said. “Therefore, to remain a sustainable, viable business, the company is implementing a price increase for consumer and professional films.”
The increase is expected to take effect in shops in the coming weeks. Boo-hoo, Kodak. :-(
