    Yes, they did, in the 80s. I used to have a copy of the ad on my office wall at EK.

    While we're talking discontinued film, I posted way back in this thread about why I don't think Superia/Natura 1600 will be discontinued in the near future. (i.e. that Fuji is still marketing cameras for use with this film.)

    Quick question: was I wrong in assuming that it hasn't been discontinued, and isn't it the only 1600 color film still available? I tried to get some at a local shop today and was told it was discontinued. Since it's still widely available and I haven't heard otherwise, I'm guessing the store just isn't carrying it anymore.

    Maybe I need to start pushing Portra 800...

    I can tell you one thing about Fuji's communication style: it's very much in line with other Eastern/Asian styles insofar as saving face goes. The whole 800Z ("okay, we'll bring it back guys!") debacle is a perfect example. Ask yourself if they even manufactured a single new spool of 800Z since then.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    By the way...

    I would just like to say to all the people who talked trash about my counter people:

    This sounds like Fuji is doing this because they don't want to rebrand Japanese film for the U.S.. The Japanese version of 160s is called 160NS.

    in the grand scheme of things, it appears as though the three film manufacturers have made a deal to at least survive with what their strengths are: Fast forward to 2015 and: Ilford b+w, Kodak C-41 only and Fuji will make E-6 film.

    This is yet the third rebrand of 160, btw.

    NPS 160
    Pro 160S
    160NS

    I believe all of them are exactly the same too. I don't think 160, specifically, got the "4th layer" changes, but I could be wrong. They should have just added a P and we could have gone fully backwards.

    I think Kodak will stay in black and white maybe even longer than they are in C-41......

    I don't mind Kodak, Fuji or Ilford discontinuing products that don't sell. Unfortunately that's unavoidable. But I DO mind them lying about it. What is wrong with telling your clients ahead of time that a product will be discontinued?

    I once loved the high quality of Kodak. But several times, they have discontinued products just a few weeks after telling us the contrary. Such an untrustworthy company won't get one cent of my budget anymore. I simply cannot afford recalibrating my methods every year because Kodak disrespects me as a client.

    As long as Ilford or Fuji just tell me the truth, they can count on me voting for them with my wallet.
