Fujifilm says film prices will rise by up to 60%

In a statement on their website, Fujifilm has confirmed that the price of their photographic films and papers will rise as much as 60% and 20%, respectively. Those relying on prolab products, printed products, and services can expect to see a hike of up to 94%. No double services providers will be passing these increases on to consumers.

Fujifilm has indicated that these increases are as a result of "soaring raw materials, transportation costs, etc., as well as the decline in demand."

A press release on the company website stated that the company has "been working hard to absorb costs by improving production efficiency and saving costs," but that "corporate efforts" only can only go so far.

Film current available from Fujifilm includes two consumer films – Fujicolor C200 and Fujicolor Superia X-TRA400 colour negative films along with a number films aimed at the pro market such as Fujicolor Pro 400H and 160NS (colour negative), Fujichrome Velvia 50 and 100 (colour transparency), Fujichrome Provia 100F (colour transparency) and Neopan 100 Acros II (B&W negative).
