    Very unfortunate, but probably very realistic. Fuji has been more involved in the reversal end of the business for a while and seems to have trimmed their negative films, while Kodak has trimmed reversal and now has fewer, but better and more versatile color negative.

    I wonder if Fuji just might be left "holding the bag" on this one?

    E6 processing is no longer convenient or especially good in many markets. Why? Lack of demand. Surprised they held on this long.

    Personally, I see no reason to use reversal films any longer. This is where I think digital shines.

    Agreed, hence my "holding the bag" comment about Fuji.

    Let's hope Fuji can continue for a little while yet.

    Yes. Looks like the family slide shows may not go on much longer.

    Somehow I've heard that before......!!
