Celebrating Four Years Of Zay Plus Fuji Raising Film Prices & COSMOS?! πŸ˜€

Good morning guys! Hope you don’t mind if I indulge a little in celebrating and wishing my daughter Zay a very Happy 4th Birthday!! A wonderful child, couldn’t ask for a better baby, we’ve been blessed. Love you lots kid πŸ˜πŸŽ‚βœŒπŸ»

Sorry if you’ve seen some of these pictures before but they just happen to be some of my favorites among many.

Time marches on so fast! Sometimes I get sick when I remember like yesterday it was 1999 and now you telling me it’s twenty years later?!

Friend, it doesn’t get any slower. In fact, anyone above the age of forty can tell you it moves faster every year! Cherish the day and take lots of pics!

FUJIFILM, FUTURE REVIEWS & COSMOS?!

I posted this a couple of days ago, sorry for the late update. In our latest “Trends” video, we look at the news that Fuji will be raising the prices of their films by thirty percent. I’m not too happy about this. Yes, I understand they are a business and prices do not stay the same forever. However, a thirty percent increase is pretty steep and in my opinion, they haven’t felt the love for the “film” portion of their name for a long time now. I wouldn’t be surprised if they eventually get rid of all their 35mm and 120 film and focus squarely on their Instax line which makes them a lot of money.

I will also show you some of the cameras and lenses that I plan to review. Actually, I already have drafts for most of them! My issue is that I tend to be too cautious with what I say or write so I just keep editing. I just want everything to be accurate. This explains part of the reason why it takes so long between reviews. Sorry about that! My reasoning is that once these reviews come out you cannot take back what you said so you must get it right!

Thank you guys for reading and as this is the last day of February, I guess I’ll see you all next month!

  1. 4 years old! Bro, I know time flies but this is scary….I recall walking around NYBT with Zoe when she was 3 like it was yesterday and now Zay is 4. Well like you said Bro, you are blessed with two beautiful girls…30% increase…wow….that’s a consequence of plummeting volumes. Gotta amortize those fixed costs to keep the line running…plus from what I hear, the cost of chemicals is going thru the roof. Lucky I have a ton of film laying around as I am sure you do as well.
    Later bro and keep posting.

    1. Bro-Meister!! Yes I remember when you guys gave Zoe that nice book on animals and Zoe was dancing for Mrs. B!! I think you took a nice pic of her too. She wasn’t even five then. Just like Blaise growing up so fast now! And Zayda too! I think you see the Fujifilm thing from a business perspective and in that sense you’re right! Gotta stop by Pbase and see you soon! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ»
