    120 Fuji Neopan Acros 100

    I'm starting to wonder if it is the end of the line for this great film. Everyone is out of stock and has been for a while. Freestyle had a shipment coming in today that's been pushed till the end of June. B&H and Adorama say they don't know when to expect more. I have found it on a few UK sites and that is giving me hope. Though a few said low stock qty.

    What are peoples thought on this? I assume it was a profitable film for fuji based on my expierence with it and reviews form around the web.

    Has another well liked 120 film gone the way of the dodo?

    That's a good question: when I was on the phone with Freestyle, they sounded optimistic it will be around for a while, although the demise of Neopan 400 in 120 was a huge loss for me (thank god for ebay). I think Fuji might be doing smaller runs, maybe one a year on this stuff, so maybe we just have to be patient.

    Got 25 rolls of 35mm and 25rolls of 120 from B&H two weeks ago, ordered when the message about Fuji price increase came, glad I've secured a whole heap of Fuji, they seem very sketchy (but I love their films, so what can I do?

    How much do you think this has to do with Fuji announcing a price increase?

    Users probably hoard it in order to avoid paying more for their favorite, hence the short supply.

    Plenty of stock at where I live and get my film from. But it's already their only b&w film in the line up. So unless they plan to pull out of 120 film completely.

    My thought exactly.

    This is what scares me so much about Acros. It's my favorite film bar none. I just don't like any other film nearly as much as I like Acros, so I use tons of it. But, when Fuji stops production (which I'm sure they will) I'll be up the creek.

    I've moved to Ilford for all other films (Tri-X to HP5, TMax 3200 to Delta 3200), but Acros stands alone. I don't like Delta as much.

    Oh no, what a nightmare this would be! I hope this will not happen... Acros is a wonderful film. I have around 25 rolls (120) left in my fridge and will re-order soon.

    (My personal disaster would be the loss of TriX - it would hurt like the loss of Polywarmton - but I'd surely miss Acros as well. These are my two main films.)

    Unique Photo lists Acros 100 in 120 format as "in stock" so I may have to get some from them...

    Over here the only shop selling serious film in the country has it in stock. Also my favorite film, but that may change when I start doing IR in the summer
