    Fuji Pro 800 Z is not dead

    I read today on on Fuji's Use Film Club site. that although they announced last September that Pro 800Z was to be discontinued, they have been surprised at the customer reaction World wide, and have decided to continue manufacturing it.

    It's currently priced very cheaply in the UK - cheaper than Superia 800, 400H and the 160 films. I think I like it more than Superia 800, it seems better on the skin and I like how 800Z and 400H are only 5cc magenta in difference when printing.

    Yes, they did announce later that they would continue to produce it.
    I have bought some last month.

    How does it compare to Portra 800 in 120?

    800Z is more saturated Chazzy and more contrasty and has the fourth emulsion layer that improves it's performance in mixed lighting, whereas Kodak Portra 800 is softer in contrast, colour balance, and saturation that makes it particularly suitable for portraits in low lighting conditions. IMHO Fuji 800Z is much more suitable film for general purpose available light photography and capable of amazing results considering it's speed in low light.

    It's always good news when a film escapes from the jaws of death

    Maybe if everyone came to Japan and started buying Neopan 400 in 120 ...
    Those who know, shoot film

    Well, fuck a duck! That was the only reason I used the film instead of Press 800!!!
