    Maybe they were just wrong.

    According to Fuji, Acros employs "Super Fine Sigma Grain Technology", which to my understanding is equivalent to T-grain.
    Here's what Wackypedia says: "Tabular-grain film...includes nearly all color films, T-MAX films from Kodak..., Delta films from Ilford Photo and the Fujifilm Neopan films."
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    That would mean that the NEOPAN word is the T grain indicator not Acros, so then what's "Neopan Acros 100" vs just "neopan 400"?

    Acros is a type of Neopan. I don't know if the Wiki article is accurate, but Fuji makes it clear in their Acros data sheet. It uses tabular grain.

    Anybody think that if Kodak doesn't find a buyer for its film and it discontinues all the film (I'm hoping it doesn't, but you never know) that Fuji will re-introduce Fuji 160S, Fuji 160C, and Fuji 800Z? 400H isn't much to go on, considering the only other colour neg they have is Fuji Superia (and Reala in 120).

    Reala is gone too, it'll only be around for as long as remaining stock lasts.
    I don't remember where I read it, but there was a statement from Fujifilm that they would bring discontinued films back if there were demand. Kodak kicking the bucket would surely qualify IMHO. On another note: I would love to see 800Z back and have both 160NS and 800Z available in 135 as well. Fuji only has 400H left in 135 (at least in their professional lineup). Portras are fine but at times for certain situations too magenta-ish for my taste, the lack of choice in 135 really bugs me...
