Thanks for checking and clarifying. This is important to do, because we get a lot of posts of this sort based on sketchy information from camera store employees or regional distributors who may only be aware of what is happening in their local area or may be actively trying to get out of the film portion of their business.
Anyone in a position to check other markets? I'm posting a query on choose-film.com, which is Fuji UK--
Hmm... the response I got from Fuji UK a short while ago was that they don't really know what is happening, but they are looking into the matter (presumably with headquarters in Japan) and will make an announcement sometime in the next few days. Guess we'll just have to wait for a press release in order to confirm all of this.
User "Fujifilm UK" seems to be the userid for one or more actual representatives of Fujifilm UK, and they usually respond directly to queries about Fuji products and services with the kind of information that one would expect them to know.
Where is the FP series of film made? In Japan only? Overseas, too? If it's made overseas as well perhaps Fuji would only discontinue it here? But that doesn't make sense as there are plenty of film users in Japan.
Fujifilm Japan's contact number is 03-5962-6200 in Tokyo. At the bottom of this page is a link to submit inquiries "Inquiry re this product" - the form is completely in Japanese, however.
