Fujifilm to reorganize film lineup UPDATED

UPDATED 7 Mar 2010 (see below)

Fujifilm has announced some changes in their product line affecting the following film products:

  • Neopan 400 (Presto) 120 size is discontinued with immediate effect (does not affect availability in 135 format)
  • 12 and 24 exposure rolls for 35mm film will be gradually phased out
  • Acros 100 in 11×14 size (special order) discontinued
  • Provia 100 F 11×14 (special order) discontinued
  • Pro 160 NC 120 discontinued
  • T64 reversal 4×5 sheet film, T64 reversal 4×5 Quickload and T64 reversal 8×10 sheet film discontinued

There will be some gradual changes in the packaged quantities of some films, for example single packs will become 3 packs or 5 packs; in the case of 120 format the 20-packs will be withdrawn and only 5-packs remain. We will reflect these changes in our web shop over time as appropriate and where applicable.

In the meantime, the best way to ensure long-term availability of film is to continue shooting it!

Neopan 35mm Test Sets

Not everyone is fully familiar with the Neopan range of black-and-white films by Fujifilm. Before you commit to a particular emulsion, it may be worth trying out a few rolls and see how you like it and how it behaves with your darkroom workflow. Neopan 35mm Test Set A
includes three rolls of 35mm film with 36 frames each of one type, Neopan 35mm Test Set B four rolls of 35mm film with 36 frames each, one of each kind. This set is for the impatient, who want to get familiar with all the films at the same time. Happy testing!
