Kodak price rises to hit film
June 12, 2008
Kodak is likely to raise the price of some films as part of its worldwide response to the increased cost of raw materials.
At first Kodak had only suggested that photographic paper and chemistry would be hit.
But Patrick Hamilton, the company?s European PR director for consumer digital products, said it is ?likely? some films will also be affected though he could not yet confirm details.
Eastman Kodak recently stated that the price of some consumer products would rise worldwide by up to 20% in response to the higher cost of materials such as silver, aluminium and petrol.
The price rises take effect from 1 July.
On 3 June The Guardian issued a correction, after Kodak complained that the newspaper had wrongly reported that digital cameras and printers would be among the products affected.
