    FP-100B appears to be cancelled globally

    I wrote to Fujifilm (in Japanese) to ask just case there is some mistake but there does not appear to be any mistake this time.

    DISCONTINUED PRODUCT - Limited Supply

    I'll let you know their reply to my enquiry but I expect it will resemble the one I got when I asked about Neopan...

    Sadly they didn't buy the pack film machinery from Polaroid. I hope Fuji stays in the market with 100C and 3000B at least but if they were to exit the market entirely I wonder if TIP would buy pack film machines from them? Given the longevity of TIP film I'm not sure I'd want it but you never know... is their recent stuff lasting more than a few months now before fading?

    The FP-400B is also discontinued according the japanese site.

    The only B/W instant product seems to be FP-3000B.

    I think there was a FP-500B in the past too.

    Not sure about their stuff, I don't have any cameras that take their film.

    "Shuryo" is a term I'm dreading whenever I look at Fuji's offerings.

    What's Fujifilm.ca's supply like? I suspect only the Instax stuff will be available in the not-so-distant future.

    This is sad. I still have 3 sheets of FP100B45 in my polaroid holder.
    f/22 and be there.

    I have eleven 10-packs left and will get more. Canadian prices are so high I never buy here buit they could have the last stock left for that reason...

    Down to two pack films now, 100C and 3000B.

    I don't have any SX70 cameras either so no TIP film here.

    I discovered the magic of the FP-400B last year c/o Japan Exposures. Too bad it's gone though, because for me it was the perfect film to use indoors with the RZ67-II + 110mm f/2.8. Now that the 100B is gone too, it looks like the writing is on the wall for pack film in general.
