Fuji FP-100c 4x5 discontinued?
I was about to order some Fuji FP-100c 4x5 from B&H. They had it in stock a few days ago, but it's now listed as "Discontinued".
Is it really discontinued? Does anyone have information?
Adorama has some in stock: http://www.adorama.com/FJFP100C45.html
Freestyle is out of stock, but is not reporting it is discontinued.
I hope this is a fluke at B&H. It's great film. Same thing is going in with Acros; every place is out of stock.
There was a thread here earlier on polaroid backs where it was said it was discontinued and I recall reading that somewhere else. Even if it isn't, the cost difference is silly. I just bought a 405 back for my 4x5 to shoot the 3.25x4.25 - close enough for me.
EDIT: Here's the other thread. No source is cited for the information about discontinuance of 4x5, but I'm sure I've read the same thing before:

i think it is being discontinued, they may have done one last production run so stock should still be around.
maybe try the choose film website.
I haven't seen anything official from Fuji.
The only statement from Fuji was concerning B&W, 4 X 5 pack film, being discontinued.
Instant 4 X 5, B&W, peel-apart pack film will be discontinued.
Instant B & W film FP-3000B 45 SUPER SPEEDY" of film method (peeling) (4 × 5 size, film black and white) Instant Peel Type of apartment will be discontinued soon.
B&W will be discontinued, but Color will continue(?).
It is becoming increasingly difficult. For this reason, forced out of the 4 × 5 film the same size, will be discontinued as described below black and white film. In addition, the color film will be continue to sell.
The only film listed in this notice, 'by name,' is the FP3000b45, B&W film.
Discontinued one name. "B & W instant film FP-3000B 45 SUPER SPEEDY"

To the best of my knowledge the production line was dismantled last year. Here's a thread.
That doesn't always mean that a product is dead. I knew of one computer company, back in the day, that set up a line, made so much of a product, tore down the line, built up a new line on that spot, and made a different product, then tore that down and built up another line. Technically nearly their entire product line was out of production at any given time.
