End of an era

I remember when Jim Grey wrote this post just last a few weeks back, I thought to myself, “I’d better get over to Wal-Mart and pick up another 4-pack for old time’s sake,” especially since I had just looked on B&H and everyone else and saw that 4-packs of Fuji were listed as discontinued.  By the time I actually got to Wal-Mart, it was all gone and the only film they sell now (besides Instax) is single-use cameras.  It breaks my heart, however I have 5 or so rolls close at hand and more in the freezer.

But then just a few days ago I went to the other old standby, my local City Market.

They’d been selling 3-packs of Kodak Gold 200 for around $9.00, but now they’re $15!  Heartbreaking, to think that there are now no cheap sources of film left unless one buys online.  Still, when you really need something immediately, it’s good that there are a few options left…

edit: Superia 400 is back, and at a comparable price.  Time to start shopping online exclusively…
