    Why is it that Fuji's discontinued products result in some angst among a few, with grumblings to accompany. But Kodak's behavior results in rabid wailing and gnashing of teeth accompanied with death wishes toward the Kodak management?

    I don't have any info from Fuji but this is the response I got from Freestyle. Copied and pasted:


    Hello Jason

    The Legacy Pro film is no longer available. What we have left in stock
    will be available until sold out.

    Thank you.

    Kodak loyalists have a greater tendency to join forums and really express themselves online?

    I don't think that the discontinuation of Legacy Pro is the same as the discontinuation of Neopan 400. I think the former was just Fuji dumping short-dated film. Which probably doesn't bode well for sales of fresher film...

    I agree. I wasn't trying to imply that the Legacy Pro discontinuation had anything to do with the availability of the fuji film.

    I do think that this thread is far more sane than the 40 page Kodak bashings.

    Because Kodak was the 800-pound gorilla in the room.

    If Hawker Beechcraft said they were getting out of the aircraft business there would be angst and grumblings by a few loyal users. But if Boeing said the same thing, the aircraft market would tank overnight. You wouldn't be able to count the number of death wishes...

    speaking of grumblings...

    I personally stopped using all Fuji Film products after they discontinued Neopan 400 in 120. It wasn't so much that they stopped making the film that got me angry (though I certainly wasn't happy about that) but more the utterly horrible lack of communication on their end. Kodak at least takes the time to issue a press release and responds to my e-mails, even when it's news I don't want to hear. Ilford of course is incredible with their communication and doesn't leave us guessing.

    I'd just rather give my money to a company that talks to the people who keep them in business.

    I have now had an official answer from Fuji to my question: Fuji Neopan 400 135 has NOT been discontinued.

    As others have said Reala 135 has now ceased production but in the U.K. large stocks remain.
