    Fuji Neopan 400 (135) running out ...

    ... due to a well-known german mail-order company near Hamburg, production of the Neopan 400 in 135 format was ceased by Fuji. Sad, another classic film down the drain ...

    It ceased some time ago and there is not much left. What did the German mail-order company have to do with the end of this film?

    I have difficulty keeping up with the discontinuation of films but I had thought that Fuji had discontinued Fuji Neopan 400 in 120 only. If Fuji 400 is now discontinued in 135 does this leave only Acros in both 120 and 135 with no other non chromogenic B&W in the Fuji range?

    Neopan 400 appears to be still available in 35mm, at least according to the Fujifilm UK website. And 7dayshop.com (UK) also has it in stock, with no indication of any discontinuance.

    That is exactly my findings, railwayman3 so maybe Tom Stanworth could give us his source of info on its discontinuation in 135?

    It is a pity that neither Kodak or Fuji seems to want to keep contact with film users via APUG and give us the up-to-date position

    I bought 40 rolls of the short date Arista Legacy Pro 400 35mm for my photography class earlier this summer, Freestyle says their stock is limited, so there might be some truth to a scaling back of production from fuji. I like this film very much as well.

    Maybe, hopefully, it's only the Legacy Pro films that are affected. I went to Freestyle's site and noticed that the Legacy Pro films are listed as "Short Date Specials" but the Neopan 400 seems to be plentiful. I hope that Fuji hasn't discontinued Neopan 400 in 35mm. I really like the film, and hope Neopan 400 doesn't go away anytime soon.

    It says: sold as long as the stocks last. Fuji ceased production...

    If anyone wants to contact Fuji UK about this, here's the direct email: gdacosta [at] fuji.co.uk

    I'd do it myself but I've pestered them so many times over discontinuation scares that they're rather sick of me.
