    Does anyone know of anybody who has acros 120 in stock. Everyone I can think of seems to be out of it. I just ordered 20 rolls from Warehouse Express to find that they only had two in stock.

    I noticed the same problem trying to find Acros 120 before Christmas. A batch of stock eventually arrived at most retailers, but sold out quickly. It seems Fuji are only supplying Acros 120 sporadically now. I eventually switched to Delta 100 for this reason. I fear Acros is being quietly phased out... but I'd love to be proved wrong.

    Have you tried Fuji, they have a uk website - fujilabs, I think- but google it and it should come up.

    I bought a load of film from fujilab after the 160S scare and it took a month to arrive; they kept claiming they were waiting for the Acros 100.

    Here is the crack with ACROS 120 - they had a quality control problem and had to trash a whole load of production (expensive!) and this has caused the supply problems. We are getting at least 3 calls a day for this stuff.

    We are expecting it in approximately 4 weeks - we can take pre-orders if anyone wants just contact us - you don't have to commit or pay any money until it is here. Any orders placed on line will be queued and you wont be charged until time of dispatch (your card is only encrypted at point of order)

    Depending on how desperate you are, there is an eBay seller apparently claiming to have stock, although you'd need to get in touch with them to see if they actually have any!

    Calumet UK have it at a reasonable price (£2.35) - order it on-line and collect from a shop to save on the postage.
