    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.

    http://translate.google.com/translat...lead_0132.html

    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.
    Instant 4 X 5, B&W, peel-apart pack film will be discontinued.
    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.
    B&W will be discontinued, but Color will continue(?).
    Discontinued one name. "B & W instant film FP-3000B 45 SUPER SPEEDY"

    • From FP-3000B 45 SUPER SPEEDY 1 pack
    • From FP-3000B 45 SUPER SPEEDY 20 Pack
    The only film listed in this notice, 'by name,' is the FP3000b45, B&W film.

    To the best of my knowledge the production line was dismantled last year. Here's a thread.

    Best,

    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.
