    Is 120 Fuji Reala Actually Discontinued?

    I've read on internet that 120 Reala is discontinued, elsewhere that it is still being manufactured. What is the truth? (B&H is out of stock. Adorama is out or nearly out. - both possibly?? for good??)

    (I was lucky to get the last chunk of Adorama's stock of this great color neg film. After this is gone, it will only be the weird looking Kodak Ektar 100 left for ASA 100 120 format color neg film.

    There was a post here from someone in Japan with a link that claimed Reala 120 was discontinued. A later post clarified that Reala 120 is discontinued in Japan only.

    That's news from Fuji almost half a year ago. So Fuji is still making 120 Reala, correct?

    120 Fuji Reala is freely available in the U.K, but the 135 stuff is discontinued. Fuji seems to have a different policy from country to country and Fuji Japan probable leaves it up to the individual countrys film devision what it wants to import based on the sales figures.

    I bet that Fuji's film manufacturing dept and its Japanese film distribution dept are completely separate entities in terms of ordering/supplying stock.

    Your'e quite right it's not imported, but the decision of what's going to be sold in which country based on the potential market for the product is a commercial decision that the company is entitled to make.

    The Rollei Crossbird is actually a twisted C-41 film, so the DIY-people might add this film to the negative film listing.

    They make both 160S and 400H in 120, as well as Reala which is not discontinued.
