    Fuji Discontinues three film camers

    http://photorumors.com/2012/08/07/fu...-film-cameras/

    Fujifilm issued a press release that they will discontinue the production of the Natura Classica ($299), Klasse W ($559) and Clear Shot M compact film cameras.

    I'm not sure if this means they still make any film cameras. This is a shame, I do hope that we haven't seen the last of Fuji coming out with new modern film cameras. They were the only company to really show use what could be achieved when you combine the latest technology with film camera production and the only company to really come out with new modern film cameras after 2004, and I assumed this was because it was in their interest to do so, but it would seem that that isn't even intensive enough anymore?

    "Klasse W Black" is still listed.

    As is "Klasse S".

    Also their MF rangefinder cameras and their instant cameras are still listed as in production.

    That a thread may only informative to few members should be no reason not to start it.

    I think it would've helped if they'd sold them worldwide, why did they only sell these cameras in Japan?

    Well, Fuji also introduced new cameras recently. (Variations of their Instax models.)

    I followed this up fearing the loss of the RF cameras (not that I could ever afford one), and eventually found myself on Fuji's Global site ... where the Film & Cameras product section mentions only instant and single-use cameras.
    (I'm not suggesting a conspiracy, just that it seems ridiculous to produce something so good and then not mention it)
