    At this point, Fuji appears to be sitting on both hands. Oh, and at least one thumb is where it should not be! Maybe they are playing switch!

    One the one hand 35mm Reala is supposedly threatened but some of Fuji's own pages only state that 24 exp is being discontinued. Who knows what the truth is, one thing is for sure, Fuji have made a bloody mess announcing these changes and they should be ashamed of themselves for how badly this has been handled. Some clear statements from each global unit of Fuji's stating in plain language what's chopped, what's not, what's renamed and what's repackaged would go a long long way.

    I would seem that 160S is being renamed 160NS and 35mm discontinued, 160C I think is dead, 800Z also seems to be dead. Neopan 400 120 is definitely dead in the water. The big problem is Fuji's own information contradicts their press release that Superia Reala 35mm is discontinued.

    Vicky. The OP is correct with his information. I have an email from fuji, I sent it to PE because I am not allowed to post it all over the internet. He confirmed it. Sadly its all true. I wish it weren't.

    I got a reply from Fuji japan that said 160S was going to be imported into the US as 160NS. So 160S is gone to be replaced by 160NS, at least according the reply I got. What will actually pan out is anybody's guess. But Fuji USA appears to not to know whats going on, or isn't releasing all the information or Fuji Japan is full of crap. I do believe the original list to be accurate in that everything on there will be discontinued, but not every replacement has been mentioned yet. Too much contradictory information from multiple sources.

    Fuji is you are reading this some PUBLIC clarification would be nice.

    Fuji really has learned from the Toyota School of Communications.

    Just share the information rather than hinting around please. The way you're going about it is just going to frustrate people.

    PE, 400PR in 120 was apparently discontinued due to issues with PFOS and the environment. Any thoughts?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    B&H have marked 800Z 120 & 220 as Discontinued. Stocks of 160C and S still appear to be available.

    Arrghhhh...Typical Japanese rubbish.

    I'm born and raised in Japan (also a citizen), and this is a very typical thing. No one can ever make up there minds, everyone is very slow at making clear decisions, and no one communicates with each other. Fuji's business ethic is very close to that of the Japanese government!


    As long as 160NS stays, I'm happy.

    I use the 800Z and have come to like it. Sad to see it go but I won't stockpile it, I'll probably go back to Superia 800.

    But what of Reala? Is this also now discontinued as the BJP suggest? The OP didn't mention this film. That will be a big loss.
