    I've looked at the normal outlets here in the USA and do not see any listed. I did see one site in Japan that showed some 160NC in 4x5. So, I'm thinking it too has been dropped along with the cut they did last year on a lot of 4x5 stuff.

    Fujifilm 160NS is discontinued across the board. It is no longer being manufactured. I was in Japan a few months ago and was looking for this film and could not find it anywhere, even in the largest film store in all Tokyo. I was told it will not be made again.

    Sucks........

    There might be stock still out there, as the discontinuation was very recent. I have some recently made Reala and that too is 100% discontinued. I searched all over Tokyo looking for Reala and 160NS and came up 100% empty.

    Basically only the films that got redesigned packages now survive at Fujifilm. 160NS did not get the redesigned package, 400H did.

    I'd be happy to be proven wrong as 160NS was quite cheap compared to 400H.

    By the way, I can still buy 160NS in China, but my film guy tells me that he cannot order any more.

    I've only seen the 400H being offered up as a continued product at this present time.

    So this leaves Kodak as the sole manufacturer of colour print film in sheets.

    Yes this link provided at the time a bit of positive news, but as we've seen the outcome was not as good as it looked at first. I just see it as availability is what's on the shelves. I do not seek further then that any longer after the last few years of holding out hope with everyone else.

    Yes, the image in that link shows films that currently survive at Fujifilm. Reala 100 and 160NS are gone as they did not get new packaging.

    Yes Fuji discontinued that emulsion in 5x4 with a couple of others a year or so back. What is still available is back-inventory, like a lot of the films that were discontinued.
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.
