    You can get it from Asia, pm if you want details about it.

    Well, in live in Tokyo myself. That's why I was starting the thread. It doesn't feel like it's going away here anytime soon.

    I mean a way to source it easily for people who don't live in Japan, or China,

    I can still get it in the US if I shop around, but it's expensive. It might also be available from Asia even after it isn't here - or, dare one hope, was only discontinued here? I'll PM you.

    I've pushed Rollei CR200 with so-so results, it's not Provia 400, but it works when you're in a jam.

    Yahbut, Provia 400X pushes too, to 1600 if really needed.

    But yeah, once my stock of it and all the remaining stock I can buy are used up, that leaves the CR200 as the fastest on the market.

    I really wish Ferania would have jumped into an unserved part of the E6 market instead of another 100 film, either something lower saturation/contrast like Astia/E100G or something faster like 400. Both those niches are unfilled now. There is Velvia and Provia both in 100 so they are entering the most competitive part of the small E6 market.

    This is really interesting. I just emailed my cousin in Beijing to look around for me and see if there is an abundance of 400x. I never had the chance to shoot the stuff I just got into film now...so it'd be great if it's still around in Asia.

    It's still around in asia. Just because it doesn't look like it's gone, it doesn't mean it's discontinued. Once all of the last stock is gone and you can't buy it, you will know then it's discontinued.

    very true, it might just be the last stock that's selling now. I guess I could start buying in bulk and store it in my freezer, but not sure if it makes sense. Maybe it's better to face reality and move on.

    The reality is no more iso 400 slide film. I want to have some around for when I really want it. Otherwise I will use something else. I bought 4 pro packs when I was in Japan in Feb. I probably should have got more, but I also got few other films too.
