    Fujifilm

    I always thought Fujifilm was going to be the company that kept the film torch burning. After all, they released a medium format film camera recently!

    But after looking at both www.fujifilm.com and www.fujifilmusa.com, I dont know anymore. At their main site, they fail to list at all any of their Neopan B & W films. It's completely missing! And over at the USA site, not only is Neopan missing, but all of their professional films as well as transparency films. Seriously, both of these sites look like they took about 30 minutes to put together. They should be doing so much more to generate knowledge and interest in film photography. It would not require a lot of effort if they had the passion and vision to get it done.

    Take it with a grain of salt. Website geeks are often badly out of sync with what their company actually does.
    Dime a dozen from the day labor line at Starbucks. But Fuji USA has long had internal communications problems,
    if not downright infighting.

    ^ and Neopan 1600 is still on the site!?

    Ironic that the US Fuji site has Neopan 1600 still listed and the EU Kodak site has Plus X still listed...

    Fuji isn't exactly keeping the torch burning with color negative films....

    The B&W films aren't listed on the UK site but appear on the US site. Must have the same web techs as HP - if you visit their sites, products pop on and off at random.

    I lost all faith in Fuji when they discontinued Neopan 400 in 120 without warning, and released no information to the public regarding it. That was in my opinion one of the most versatile films ever. It's a shame. More power to Ilford in this day in age. I will support Ilford til the end.
