    You may be right about Reala, but I take little stock in notifications. Kodak discontinued E200 in 120 last summer and there was no notification. Their web site shows it's available. Try finding some, it's gone.


    Why Kodak announces some and not others is beyond me.

    Hi Bob, I know I can get it 135. Was your question to Fuji specific to 120 Reala? Going back to the E200 scenario, its still available in 135, but not in 120. Perhaps this is why Kodak says they have not discontinued E200.

    This shows Superia Reala (CS) available in 135 only:

    http://www.fujifilm.com/products/con...superia_reala/

    We've seen this before with Superia 100 (CN). It's still available in 135, bt no longer produced in 120. A few outlets may have a few rolls left. Freestyle, B&H, and Adorama do not have any in stock. Adorama show's that "This item is currently back ordered from the Mfr. We have no estimated time of arrival for this item "

    So the Fuji rep was correct, they do not have plans to discontinue Superia Reala. In 135.

    Of course, I could be wrong.

    Unfortunately I used the fujifilm USA feedback to ask that question. I'm pretty sure reala has only "officially" been available in the US in 35mm never 120, note at B+H at least you can get USA or IMPORTED 35mm, but only IMPORTED 120. It couldn't hurt for someone to email fuji using a regional web page where reala 120 is available.

    Here's the same website from 2008:
    http://web.archive.org/web/200804081...superia_reala/

    I dont think fuji has ever listed the 120 version of Reala on the consumer area because they consider it a "professional" film due to its format (120).

    Here is the professional film page (only in Japanese though) and it lists Fuji 120 Reala ACE at the bottom of the page. It looks like the whole lineup of the Reala films are still in production.

    PS:
    Here is a page that lists the 35mm "consumer" version on the Japanese site.

    Yep, Reala is still in production, but only available in the U.S. by importing (from the UK, Japan, etc). Someone else posted on another forum about getting it from the UK, which I checked out -

    Reala 100 120 5 pack
    http://www.fujilab.co.uk/catalog/reala-pack-p-187.html

    Superia 400 120 10 pack (single packs also available)
    http://www.fujilab.co.uk/catalog/sup...ack-p-154.html

    Then with shipping I think the Reala works out to about USD $30, so $6 / pack - not too bad if that's our only option.

    Things have drifted a bit here from the OP's actual question. It wasn't about Reala.

    (Non-Reala) Superia 100 does seem to have vanished from most sources. Adorama lists "Fujicolor 100" in stock, but not Superia-labeled stuff. Branding change? I don't know, but the shortage of the Superia name in 100 is widespread enough to be worthy of note.

    not sure why they describe this as (superia) when film packaging has no mention. Do they know something?

    also

    The Fujicolor 100 datasheet link found on Fuji's global site brings up Superia 100:

    Old Superia was designated "CN". The new Superia-Reala is designated "CS". The older CN has been discontinued and was the original subject of this thread. A few outlets seem to have some CN left as well as fleabay. The last production run had expiration dates in 2010. I would be willing to try Reala (CS) if I can get my hands on some.
