    You'd better not forget that the latest official announcement from Fuji was issued for the Japanese domestic market exclusively; Velvia 50 4X5 has never been discontinued here yet, so far at least. And I think it should also be reminded that the article in the BJP was just an "excerpt" from the interview with the rep of the Fuji's UK department rather than an "official anouncement" released from Fujifilm itself. It is highly likely that "stop importing some range of films to the UK" could have been misinterpreted as "discontinuation of the product".

    Think positive, maybe they like the box design of Provia 400X and decided not to change it as it's already a departure from the current box designs. I use Provia 400X, 100F and Velvia 50 in all assorted sizes regularly.

    I'm surprised to hear that Fuji Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 is still out there to be taken advantage of despite the discontinuation announcement last summer which had everyone freaked out. BTW, I just bought 3 boxes of Velvia 50 8x10 from Adorama Camera for $219.99 a box. Exp is April 2014. I know it's the old box design but looks like they still have more for anyone else interested.

    I will continue to hunt down and use all these great films regardless of where they need to be purchased from. It may get pricier but at least my photography will improve by being more selective. It's just like when I shoot LF vs smaller formats. I walk away with more prized keepers at the end of the day with LF.

    I can't see a world without film, can you? That's why I will bicker less about cost and just buy what I can, when I can, to keep Fuji and even Kodak (I use some colour neg) doing what they've done best all these years.

    So is the price increase for Japanese market only as well? Anyone heard anything from B&H on the coming pricing increase?

    Fuji film price has just been increased in the US a few months ago. 35mm Velvia 50 is now $8.59 per roll, up from around $6 in 2011 (according to my not so reliable memory). I would hate to see it up by another 25%, which means that the same Velvia will be sold at $10.74, almost doubling from a couple of years ago.

    It should be japan only, since the yen fell quite a bit in value over the last year and they should recoup that. Silver has been constant and with the down-turn in the economy so should be the other raw materials.

    Thanks! fingers crossed for that. I really don't want to stockpile on film as it is always better to buy fresh.

    You think you've got something to whinge about?
    In Australia, Velvia 50 135/36 is $32 a roll. Or $164 for a ProPack (5).
    So there must be room for you to pay a bit more with the next scheduled increase...
