So my comment/question/observation is, with Kodak film noticably
more money for than the competition, is this some sort of a long term plan
to find a reaosn to phase out B&W products, or maybe just poor planning? I
can understand T-Grain films being more money, at least from a marketing
perspective, but Tri-X is an older formulation, no reason it should be more
money than a film that is made overseas and has the added cost of shipping
across the Atlantic ocean.
You're confusing cost with price. They might have sold less product with a
lower price. Think about that Forte film. How many people refuse to buy
Forte,Efke etc because it's "cheap" and therefore not any good. OTOH stick
the Forte in a nicer box. Raise the price. Watch the same people rave about
the special film worth any price.
Agfa 4x5 was even cheaper then Ilford. I can't get any more-(
Selling your product cheap tends to convince people it isn't worth buying.
