    Hmm. Fuji's DSLR cameras are based upon the soon to be discontinued Nikon N80.

    Juba, I agree even being an ex Kodaker. I think Mr. Perez made both a strategic and a tactical error by making that statement. Even if it were totally true (which I discount) it should never ever have been uttered, particularly by the CEO of Kodak.

    Terrible disease that. Hoof in mouth disease, I mean.

    A friend has just brought back for me, from Japan, a few boxes of 4x5 Acros (20 ind. sheets per box) @ only $22.00 CDN or $18.00 u.s. per box! That's cheaper than what I have to pay for Efke. What a deal, for such a beautiful film.

    That's great news to hear of Fuji's committment,...for the moment.

    Why the backhanded "for the moment" comment.

    No wonder we have diminishing resources with attitudes like that. If we as photographer continue to buy their products and the profit is there for them we should have product. None of us has a crystal ball but come on this company has a transparency film desired by most serious professionals and a range of Black and White materials that is the equal of any on the market.

    Terribly sorry if you're offended by my "backhanded"comment. It's probably my utter lack of keyboard savvy, or failure to include a plethora of smilies that's likely contributing to the diminishing sense of community, brotherhood, sisterhood, and overall wellbeing of so many others. I beg pardon. Oh,...the error of my ways.

    Photography is about the only thing that I see in black and white.

    Keep in mind that still photography for Fuji along with EK is just a part of thier conventional silver halide based business. Motion picture film, medical and scientific imaging, etc. will keep the two big boys producing film for us still shooters for quite some time.

    This is great news, but perhaps it would further strengthen Fuji's resolve if they got some positive feedback on this release...?

    If someone can dig up an (appropriate) email address I'd like to propose that every APUG member sends a message of thanks and support to Fuji. At least it would show that there is an active customer base out there that is listening and welcomes their decision.

    What do you think?
