    What is your detailed receipt? Stock? 1+1? agitation? Looking for a good point of start for my own experiments, so your support is appreciated

    This is what I also do I have quite big stock of frozen stuff (not only neopan 1600).
    I have been forced to borrow space capacity in my friend's freezer

    Fujifilm UK had quite a lot of 1600 still in their stock when I asked about 4 months ago - several thousand rolls. But they do say that it has ceased production. I would imagine this stock has been considerably depleated now.

    I use XTOL one shot at 1:1, agitation is bang on the counter a few times, then invert a few times, then three inversions every 30 seconds. Times are 7 and a half minutes at 20 C or 7 minutes at 21 C. Seems to work for me.

    Where does this rumor come from, I was unable to find any news report on the death of Neopan 1600.

    Apparently it was discontinued in 2010:
    Here is a thread with some responses from Fuji Japan in it:

    sandermarijn: I live in the south of Norway, it's spring-like temperatures here now, all hail to global warming :P

    All N-Europeans intensely hate this global warming thing . Well, Holland may sink in the sea, but that's for later, 2014 or so.

    I asked Matt from Ag about the status of Neopan 400-135. He is not aware of any official discontinuation. Pity that Fujifilm don't communicate a bit better. Or would this be strategy of some kind? To let the remaining stock sell better or something? It may also be a cultural issue- we need a Japanese interpreter.

    Fuji must have gone to the Kodak school of communication. After the film runs out, they decide that its time to announce that its been discontinued.
