    Well excuse me, I'll make sure I check every post you make to make sure I'm not duplicating one of yours.

    Sorry I hurt your feelings

    I don't understand the translation link. I don't know how anyone can determine anything about what Fuji is going to do with their films from the translation.

    This is an incorrect heading for this, there was another thread about this, it's not coming back in 4x5's here, it's only going to be for the asian market, the US only gets 120 and 35mm in Velvia50

    Looks like Velvia 50 is back in production!

    I'm glad Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 is still being made, and if it means I have to buy it from Japan, then that is just what I'll do. But let me get through my 180 4x5 sheets and 110 8x10 sheets first.

    i don't know why they do this stupid exclusive regional marketing crap, when the internet allows for a global market and online ordering straight from the source. it's not like they don't have the infrastructure needed to make that possible...

    I agree. the world is now a global market, so why not make all the film available world wide?

    They must have their reasons... price perhaps... they can't sell it to B&H for X price because B&H just won't order it at that price, so they just discontinue the sales of it here, over there they can sell it for Y price... if we want it here, we have to pay Y or Z price and they make more...

    I'm sure most of it has to do with the fact that we can't get the home chemistry here anymore so no one is shooting chromes because the lab costs are ridiculous, they sort of shot themselves in the foot there... stupid forced lab usage is such a DUMB plan... grrrr

    Can't you just buy your Velvia's 4x5 and 8x10's from here?

    I've bought Super Prodol dev from them and that was delivered fast with no hassle at all.

    This is a international forum.

    Some material not imported by the manufacturer's distributor into the USA does not exclude from stating it is back in production, are even just back.
