    So that's the end of conveniently projectable color home movie film? Or does Fuji make it? I know there are black and white films available from Kodak and Foma and maybe others.

    Black and white reversal is indeed still available from several suppliers.
    But as far as Super8 goes, I think we lost the colour reversal option as soon as Kodak runs out of stock.

    For Single8, there's still an option, and that is some good news. Fuji Velvia, T64 and my favourite, Astia 100F, have been unavailable in Single8 for some time now (at least from my usual supplier, and as far as I could search the internet, everywhere). As of now, my supplier has them in stock again, see http://www.wittner-kinotechnik.de/ka...m/single-8.php .

    So, not all is lost, if you happen to have a Single8 camera.

    I thought Astia was gone in all formats?

    Fuji did recently indicate they might consider bringing it back.

    I did a slide show at a party over the weekend, which included some Astia slides. I commented on loving the film but it's been discontinued. Several people commented that they could see why I liked it. (Of course then I moved on to E100G and really liked it too....)

    Indeed, it was gone, and... I don't know, but I guess it still is. The Single-8 film is not sold in Fuji boxes or even in Fuji cartridges, so it could very well be old stock, spooled into the cartridges by another company.

    I've also read about a possible come-back. "it is not completely excluded that Astia 100F might come back one time" (see this thread). That sounds rather iffy, so it's safe to assume that the Single-8 is old stock Astia.

    Hm... which slide film are you using now? Will that be the next one to go?...

    Wittner also sells Velvia in Super 8-cassettes and is thinking about offering other Fuji-slidefilm in Super-8-format. So if Fuji keeps producing Slidefilm, we will still have reversal available in Super 8.
    The only problem is that slidefilm isn't optimized for movie use. So there is a change of jamming. Haven't had any problems with the Velvia cassettes I have used. I shot three rolls of it.

    Well I'm still shooting up the rest of the E100G, Elitechrome 100 and Ektachrome 200 that I bought up. I also shoot some Provia 100, the Agfa Precisa rebranded version of it, and Provia 400. What choices do we really have? Velvia (reduced varieties but that's ok, more than enough left) and Provia 100 and 400 are IT now.
