    I've been trying to place an order for Fuji 35mm E-6 mailers and have suddenly found that they unavailable from a variety of sources. B&H, Adorama, Hunt Camera, and Amazon show them as unavailable. A quick check of the Fuji USA website brings up a "Requested page unavailable" screen. Has anybody heard anything more about this?

    Well if its gone it was a good deal while it lasted. Probably about half price of other E-6 processors. I have a 5 pack that I haven't used yet and I had hope that it would last. I also noticed that they were not in stock at most places.

    If you are looking for a dirt-cheap processing option, I would recommend Clark Color Labs. All of their E-6 gets sent to Dwayne's, and it only costs $3.95 plus $1.75 shipping per roll.

    The mailers in the USA are not discontinued and the loss of Sensia is not going to directly affect them. A re-vamp of the offerings with the mailer coming I believe.

    A friend of mine called up Dwaynes to check and they told him that they had not heard anything regarding a discontinuance of the mailers. They did mention that they had a number of calls from people about the lack of the mailers availability. BRPhoto is probably right. The last batch of mailers I purchased were branded for Sensia. It probable that Fuji wants to issue newbranded mailers since the discontinuance of Sensia. You would think that they might coordinate the issuance of new mailers so as not to disrupt the supply chain. At the same time why have a USA web page that is unavailable. If the above scenario is the case what is so difficult to have a page with this information about the change and an approximate availability date.

    Just got back a roll of Sensia 400 from Dwayne's sent in via mailer. Record time; 5 days.
