    Well that sucks. I cant say I ever used the 400/500 speed versions, but a nice 100ISO black and white was handy to have.

    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--

    Ok, so - with the power of Twitter - I sent a message to 'Choose Film':

    ChooseFilm Any response to the end of FP100B etc.? http://www.apug.org/forums/...

    This is the response:

    "ChooseFilm: Hello Namke, There are no plans to discontinue any of the FP Instant Film range for Fujifilm UK."

    So, different hymn-sheets perhaps? Or a positive result?

    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.

    Choose-Film is run by a marketing agency called WPS Media, but is owned by Fujifilm UK and appears to be regularly monitored by them. Here's a discussion on the forum that identifies the players--

    http://choose-film.com/?page_id=5&xd...&search_words=

    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.
    Those who know, shoot film
