    Part of the constant frustration with shooting film is that there's this ever present uncertainty, most notifications of discontinuance emerge as rumours, then conflicting statements from distributors, often followed by oblique statements from the manufacturer "it's in stock" "we'll continue to offer...", followed then by the official notification of death some months later.

    I find at present the only way to ensure a consistent reliable supply of my favourite films is to buy enough to last for several years and deep freeze it.

    Reala was there in that picture however it is gone now?

    I'm still shooting some old Fujicolor 400 NPH in 120 format at the moment. Still seems good.

    Reala is shown on that display as type 120 only. Not as type 135.

    I looked too quickly, my mistake.

    There's plenty of 120 Reala in the UK and Fuji UK will ship worldwide http://www.fujilab.co.uk/

    Well, I seem to have spent more time that is healthy trawling through fuji websites and have reached the conclusion that no information on discontinuation on anything is confirmed. Fuljifilm.com doesn't even mention that it makes monochrome film as far as I can see. Until I learn to read Japanese I shall assume that it's all still available until I can buy no more!

    The Japanese site still lists Neopan 1600, Neopan 400 in 120, Astia and Reala in 35mm... so you are right, it is tough to tell.

    http://fujifilm.jp/personal/film/reversal/index.html
    http://fujifilm.jp/personal/film/color/35mm/index.html

    Though if you read the side bar it says some are discontinued...

    I've also received Japanese email responses to them about discontinuing some of these films so they have done so. Learn Japanese, it's fun!

    well, I guess buy it, store it and shoot it, and find something else to worry about in the meantime.

    If you pull the Japanese sites through google translate you can get a feel for what they mean. This link shows that Neopan 1600 and 35mm Astia are cut:
