    I think there is a long thread on this at photo.net.

    sorry about deleting but there seems to be a lot of confusion about this and it's a big problem for many people not knowing if they should order large quantities of film which are possibly being dropped. I find it disrespectful on behalf of Fuji not to comment on the reports that have surfaced weeks ago on the films being dropped.

    There are some reports of Pro 160S being rebranded to Pro160NS should be mentioned.

    I hope it is not true, if it is this is a bummer!

    I was so disappointed to learn the Neopan 400 120 was on the list. I bought 60 bricks.

    Quickload will be discontinued from April 2010 onwards. Fuji UK recently provided the opportunity to order Velvia 50 quickloads at the special pre-order price of about 11 GBP a box. So I ordered a number of boxes.
    800Z has been discontinued since September or October 2009 but Fuji UK still offers this film in 35mm format. 160S and 160C is available in several formats from Fuji UK:
