    Fuji Pro 160NS - Where do you buy yours?

    Hey Everyone,

    Throughout it's many re-formulations and re-brandings, Fuji Pro 160NS has always been my favorite and most reliable color film...but it's getting pretty hard to find. I'm not a huge fan of ebay, but it looks like the only place you can purchase it in the states.

    Is there anyone else here that absolutely loves this film that knows of a store in the U.S. still selling 120 pro packs?

    Any help is much appreciated

    Is this the new version?

    I'm still working through some 220 of the 160"s" and I think I have a few rolls of "c".

    I'm assuming the "ns" is the latest iteration?
    I've never shot any or even seen it offered at the big 2. (adorama/B&H)

    Yeah, Pro 160NS is the latest version of the film that used to be known as Pro 160S and, way back, NPS 160. It has less saturation and contrast than Pro 160C, which I believe doesn't really exist anymore.

    As far as I can tell, it's only sold in Europe and Japan...but I'm hoping someone knows a place in the U.S. where I can get it without paying obscene shipping costs or VAT.

    Thanks Matt. That's what I thought I remembered reading.


    Good luck in the search.

    Have you considered the new Portra 400. That stuff is nice for a 400 speed. Heck it's a nice film period.

    Fuji 160NS is freely available in China. I saw many boxes of it this week when at the film store.

    I suggest you Email Fuji U.S and tell them you are having problems getting it , and find out which stores they have supplied it to recently.
    I've just seen Amazon.com in the U.S. are selling it.

    Unfortunately Fuji isn't known for good customer communications.

    Fuji discontinued all of the Pro 160 film earlier this year without any announcement.

    ON the japanese fujifilm site, which is the only one reliable, they still list the 160 range of pro films !

    Please, don't tell things like that ! In Europe there is no problem to have some, and I have in my shop ! 120 roll films and 4x5 inch !
