    That really doesn't mean much. If a Fuji rep told Henning in Germany it was coming back, this probably just means they've told people at the trade show before they told their own North American distributor, which is stupid but not surprising for Fuji. They do many things right. Communication is not one of them.

    I agree. Henning's post goes into some pretty serious detail of his discussion, face to face and as to what was displayed at Photokina by Fuji. That vs. what a rep in the US said, in writing, in an email? Guess which I lend more credence to? (and wish for!)

    Well, the reason I sent in the inquiry is because it's still listed on their product website and I looked at a google cache snapshot from september and it was still there. You'd think they would know what's on their site..

    Knowing the history of Fuji and Kodak as to what their websites say and what the reality is, this is no surprise....but yes, the inquiry was a valid one for sure! Thanks for trying.

    Call me pessimistic about getting to an unequivocal statement that covers both 135 and more importantly in the U.K. the situation on 120 but I have a terrible feeling that the first I will know of the real story is when a U.K. based APUGer reports in a post that he has found some fresh 120 Neopan 400 at a film retailer or the story dies a death after several weeks and we can take it that its the last we will hear of any re-start of 120.

    If the film industry was as healthy and as vigorous as the film rumour industry then we'd be back to boom time

    BH and Adorama both list it as disconitued, so I guess time will tell if that title ever gets lifted from the page. Interesting how long these people leave these things up for though.

    I did not read the entire thread, but when i went to the Fuji film booth (practically an entire hall), and asked around, there was no one to talk to me about film other then a lady behind a counter which handed me a chromo single page brochure of what she called "all remaining films...".
    I walked around some more, and asked a few more people, but found only instax stuff going on.

    Inside the the Fuji Cine lens display case, were also displayed, anonymously, the entire line of Fuji LF lenses. When i asked about those, Fuji's Cine lens product manager for Germany said that he never saw anything like that before, and that a rep form Japan had hand carried them and decided last minute to display them, and that they are not marketed anywhere outside of japan, but he promised, that if i email him he will get me the pertinent info, if i wanted.

    All that not so great stuff aside, after seeing so many silver based\film\analog stuff traded\displayed\promoted i only have a positive perspective coming out of the show.

    This does not surprise me.
    That Fuji Rep had a few very interesting points about what the state of B&W is from Fuji's perspective.
    Yay! Maybe now I can use up my frozen 120 rolls and Buy Some More.

    This is exactly my experience as well. I moved on to TMY2, but it's never treated me as well. Let's hope this is for real.

    Agreed, on 120 Neopan 400. That film, in DDX, was the first film/soup combo I liked enough to put in the effort to really learn well both for printing and scanning. Beautiful greys.
