    Either way, both are still available from japan exposures
    I tried email contact via their web site and their customer service email link appears to not work (at least from my machine!). I dropped a PM with the Fujifilm sponsor account, but I'm not sure how often they check it. They have a US 800 number (1-800-800-3854). I'm traveling next week so it may be a while before I get to calling these folks, but it is on my to-do list. If anyone wants to call and post back to this thread, please feel free (:

    3614 Yen comes to around 38 Dollars US plus shipping and any extras for 20 sheets of 4x5 inch Acros 100 from Japan Exposures. Now for Quickload film and a holder it's a no go apparently. There is nothing worse than the lack of communication when it comes to product availability. I believe it's called transparency these days and there is less and less of it as time goes on.

    OK, I called Fujifilm USA and they say that BOTH sheet and Quickloads will continue to be available. They currently have problems in distribution (whatever that means) so it may not be on the shelf. It feels like things are in flux over there.

    but in this case, we're dealing with a negative situation

    It may be that Fujifilm USA has the problem. Fujifilm probably manufacture both for different markets around the world, after all Fujifilm sells globally. Sheets may be more popular in some countries while Quickloads are in other countries. The problem may be that the market for this particular film is too small for either, but big enough that both types together have reasonable sales, so which one do you sell?
