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of some films, for example single packs will become 3 packs or 5 packs; in the case of 120 format the 20-packs will be withdrawn and only 5-packs remain.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!
