    Acros 100 discontinued?

    I saw a post on the Flickr Fuji group that it's discontinued in 120. Has anyone here heard this?

    Reading multiple online theads it seems that only the 4x5 readyloads have been discontinued. I have not been able to see any postings on the 120 being discontinued....lets hope not.

    As I understand it, they have discontinued selling single rolls, now offer just 5-packs. They apparently "discontinue" the single rolls, and "introduce" the 5-packs. Easy to see this causes confusion. If they eliminated Acros in 120, they would have no B&W film for their newly-introduced 6x7 folder and the promised 120 wide-angle camera reportedly in the pipeline; but then again this wouldn't surprise me.

    Acros is pretty popular, isn't it?

    I would be really upset if Fuji cut Acros anytime soon, like the next five years. My heart can only take so many of these culls...

    The Japanese website only states that single rolls will be discontinued - 5-roll packs from now on
    Those who know, shoot film

    Freestyle carries 5-packs, as well as single rolls. Doesn't look like its going away time soon.

    I believe the bulk version sold by Freestyle as Legacy Pro 100 is gone too.

    Good news, then. It's my most commonly used film (I still have 32 rolls od Neopan 400 left, too).
