    I hope this is a case of lost in translation plus Fuji US choosing not to import certain lines.

    Couldn't we stop this until we got more profound information?

    The term "news" in the title is misleading seen the source of information.

    About three weeks ago I already hinted at some Fuji amateur colour films being reduced in the offer of lenghts/package sizes. That information was from Fuji's japanese site. The same site also shows the cancellation of Neopan 400 Presto as type 120.

    Looking at that site today I see that PRO 160 NC is cancelled as type 120.

    If it is true there's f**k all we can do about it, ultimately companys are responsible to their shareholders to make a profit not the consumers .

    Re: Interesting news about Fujicolor Pro

    By the time i die I wonder what will remain of photography other than a bunch of digital trash. I'm past the point of making allowances. I absolutely don't have to support a technology which is killing an art that I'm into.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Starting a thread on a wide-spread internet forum on discontinuation of products without valid information (and camera shops are NOT valid sources of information) is close to libel. A company might lose customers (or at least reputation) based on this (very likely) mis-information.
    And it's plain stupid, too. But thats normal for the web.

    In a written, published, magazine - the British Journal of Photography, there's a prediction that E6 processing will almost disappear within a year. That's not actually as speculative as it sounds because in many town's/cities the closure of E6 labs has accelerated in the last 2 years.

    In a separate thread I mention Birmingham, the UK's second largest city, there's now just one professional lab left processing E6 in all formats, ten years ago there were close to 20 labs in and around the city offering E6. If that many labs have closed then E6 film sales must have shrunk in comparison.

    I wonder whether it is more of an agenda than a prediction.

    No, this is one magazine that reports accurately and has no digital only agenda, and the figures on lab closures across the UK and in other countries isn't speculation, it's fact.
