    I just noticed that the Legacy Pro film in both 100 and 400 is showing up on freestyles site in their HOT DEALS category. :confused:
    http://www.freestylephoto.biz/clearance.php

    I was wondering if this is a result or a cause for this film to be the lowest cost of the various private label films on the freestyle page. (135-36 ASA 400 has LegacyPro at 1.99, Arista PREMium and EDU.Ultra at 2.19 and Kentmere at 2.99)

    I also wonder if this is related to the other thread about Fuji discontinuing some B&W films in 120 in Japan.

    Hi. According to Fuji's site, for B&W, Acros100 and Presto400 in 135 and 4x5 will remain, but not in 120.

    I can't understand why Fuji would launch their 667 RF camera and discontinue their 120 films. That would be a very bad decision, to my mind...


    "Oh we launch a new 120 camera, but we do not produce the films the camera eats..." not very logical don't you think?
