    Well, it looks to me that all their B&W film at risk.

    黒白フィルムにつきましては製造可能な最小
    ロットを下回る状況が続いており、もはや作れない状況となってきて
    いること

    The fuller sentence:
    ネオパン1600を含めた黒白フィルムにつきましては製造可能な最小
    ロットを下回る状況が続いており、もはや作れない状況となってきて
    いること

    I would translate as:

    Concerning Black and White film, which includes Neopan 1600, we are facing the situation where [sales]continue to remain below the smallest lots that can be produced and we are approaching the stuation where they will not be able to be made

    Perhaps my translaton is in error?

    I interpreted it as explaining why, "the small lots of Neopan 1600 among B&W films could not continue to be produced," but you could be right, it could be read to say that Neopan among other B&W films cannot continue to be made in such small batches. If it isn't a form letter, I did ask about film production in general in my correspondence and perhaps this was part of that answer.

    No your translation is correct. No mistakes about it.

    Good to know that 800 and 1600 consumer color neg is still being manufactured. I was afraid we had lost both of those emulsions entirely. Too bad getting it here in the States proves difficult.

    No sheet film at all in Europe?

    When does the U.S.A. get 160NS?

    I am just wondering why it is not included on the display shown by Robert. Was it an aesthetic choice, is the film gone, or did they just forget about it or think no one would be interested anyhow?

    A film's availability in retail shops does not tell the entire story of what is or is not being manufactured.

    Well, I may be in England for a few months early next year. Maybe I can take the opportunity to stock up on Superia 800 and 1600, since at least one of these emulsions, and probably both, will not be long for this world.

    When Provia 400X goes, I will be extremely sad as well. I cannot imagine it staying around for that much longer.

    I've just noticed that the picture also has no B&W C41 film.

    And 6400iso only works with strong highlights. It's not really even close to 6400 speed - it's curve shifting.
    I disagree, my 6400 night shots come out well that arent highlights, on the same roll my 51200 shot (a curiousity at the time) came out, thin and grainy and only 3 stops of scene-range, but it was all non-highlight.

    Nor is local distribution, eg by Fuji UK (eg: Ceasing importing Astia in 35mm) and others.

    Market is online, many people import non-'local' versions due to apparent price-gouging.

    It is also still possible to buy Neopan 100 (Acros) as 5x4 sheet film, from MACO in Germany:
