    The more I read about this the more I want to get into wet plate photography and making your own emulsions. Now I need to find out if one can make a color emulsion as well ;-)

    There is a possible logic here if you extend it to the Pro range. Most pros today are using digital, and therefore that range of colour films is of limited interest to them. It is possoble that Fuji has decided to consolidate the Pro part of the portfolio and allow consumer films to continue (which may make sense, since that is where all their sales are and particularly in their film ready snap cameras and in developing nations).

    I too would regret a decision like that if they made it, since it reduces choice, and that is always bad for the art and the pocket (imagine of there was only one company making only one 800 film...)....I just realised, if Fuji lose 800Z...that is exactly the situation!

    Given that they mentioned T64, and 800Z discontinuance was discussed in the past (and revived), the only new one here is 160C/N. I honestly think the photo store is just drumming stuff up that was either heard of before or possibly (but doubtfully) new news. When I see the notice from Fujifilm USA, then I'll believe it. Until then, Film FUD.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Unfortunately the list has been released by Fujifilm officially to their dealers in the UK & US so there's no doubting anything written about what's discontinued.

    I have only seen reference to the US getting these letters but nothing on the UK just yet -- the reference for this was a recent post on JapanExposures as well as the OP.

    I have e-mailed Fuji in the UK for some clarification.

    At this point, there has only been copies of alleged postings, I saw this, I heard that etc. Even the posting on Japanexposures was only an reference to an alleged email. Until there is either a copy of the official email or an official annoucement from Fuji US/UK we should relax a little bit. No one has provided that yet. No other sites, other than filmwasters, a little blurb at the LF forum and here have anything posted yet other than rumor and speculation. I think we need official word before we can continue, otherwise we are just wasting bandwidth and time.

    Gary,

    I agree. I have contacted Fuji for this reason.

    Fuji UK are good at replying fast and it's usually a manager rather than someone quoting a script.
