A decline in demand for analog imaging products due to the advance of digital imaging, plus rising silver and crude oil prices are quoted as the reason behind this move.

Whether and to what extent those prices will be passed on to consumers is not known at this point. UPDATE: our supplier confirmed that their prices will rise accordingly as a result.
