    Fujifilm Kills Two More Films

    I nearly had a heart attack when I saw this one.

    Neopan 400 Presto and Proo 400 are axed. This is NOT 400H being killed off apparently. I never heard of Pro 400 before, nor did I ever see it in Japan.

    Of course, 400H's days are probably numbered too. Fujifilm simply isnt interested in film anymore. Sigh.......

    If you link to the eBay Pro 400 off Photo Rumour's webpage. It is the 400H. Wasn't the 400H Pro the only professional C41 Fuji did?

    Per that article that's linked to they say the neopan 400, which is the American or European version of neopan 400 presto, was discontinued last year. I thought there was just a thread six or seven months ago insisting it was being reintroduced and everything was fine. I was skeptical and I was pretty much ridiculed for being skeptical, guess I was right unfortunately...

    Didn't they get rid of Neopan 100 and now 400. Are all Fuji b/w film gone?

    That's a shame - there was a great razor-like sharpness to the grain of Neopan. It was my favorite 400 film (and the 1600 was even better, although too expensive for me to buy much of, unfortunately) and I miss it.
    Thankfully, Kodak's restructured leaving some phenomenal quality film and of course the one and only Ilford -- even more choices there. Fuji's loss, really.

    The Neopan 100SS they discontinued a long time ago. I believe Neopan Acros 100 is still around.

    Big shame. I love Neopan 400. Still have a few dozen frozen rolls in both 120 and 35 that I treasure even more now! That said I am VERY happy with the four remaining high-quality alternatives: HP5+, Delta 400, Tri-X and Tmax 400, all capable of terrific results. Hope Kodak stays around but if not Ilford will suffice.

    After the petition and many letters to Fuji Japan in an attempt to save their "flagship" Velvia 50 product in sheet film..... I suspect you're statement is very correct to a point.

    AFAIK, Pro 400 is 400H (the repackaging)
