    It makes sense to me. I participate in monthly group activities Mar-Oct (occasionally Nov too) and shoot lots of slides then show them at a group party every December. Depending on the weather I sometimes can really use the speed. I've got maybe 20 rolls in the freezer now, enough for two years of that project but do occasionally use it for other things.

    It's just too good a film to let go without stocking up what I can. Yes, it's grainier than slower films, but still good for a 400 slide film. Color is excellent, quite natural, in fact I used it some in situations where I could have used 100 but needed something more moderate in contrast than Provia and when I didn't want to dip into my frozen stock of E100G (back when 400X was still being made but E100G and Astia were not.)

    Sigh.

    Yeah I'm trying to scrape some cash together to stock some film. I've never shot 400H either and they're disappearing too.

    Sludges? Damned autocorrect, that piece of shut. Let's see if it's too late to fix that...

    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.
    I might be very wrong here, but the reason Nicola gave for Film Ferrania to start with the 100 ISO films is that they are the newest emulsions the old Ferrania produced and they have the recipes for it.
    To create a 400 ISO film, they'll have to start from scratch, or so it is my understanding.
    I believe Ferrania did once a very fast 1000 ISO slide film. If I remember well it was very grainy!

    400H isn't disappearing, it received the new box design.

    If anybody wants a 5 pack of provia 400x I can definitely pick one up for you. Just PM me. Or anything else that's hard to get outside of Japan for that matter.

    Fuji Pro 400 (Japan only) is what is gone. 400H is good.

    My local San Diego stores have a good amount of 400X, up to $16/135-36 now. One place has a fair amount of Tmax 3200 as well.

    Update. My cousin did find 400x in China and is shipping me a couple boxes of 120 and 35mm. I didn't want to bother him with getting me a ton but at least it seems relatively easy to find there, it's not expensive either.
