    Fujifilm Pro 800z to continue production

    From Fuji's Choose Film website newsletter:

    Fujifilm re-think Pro 800Z withdrawal

    Due to demand from its customers, Fujifilm Professional has decided to continue production of Fujicolor Pro 800Z. It was announced recently that the company was to discontinue the film from September 2009.

    Fujifilm's Product Manager for Professional Film, Russ Gunn, explained the turnaround: "We were amazed by the reaction from our customers following the announcement that Fujifilm was going to discontinue Pro 800Z. We have received many calls and emails from photographers who appreciate the natural skin tones and fine grain that Pro 800Z gives them. Many people were genuinely upset about the withdrawal so we have bowed to this pressure and decided to continue production for the time being."

    Good news and its even better if it is true that 800 pushed, as some users claim, is better than Fuji1600 which is in my experience quite grainy even at 8x10 in 35mm.

    Now WE PHOTOGRAPHERS have a responsibility to buy 800Z.

    The problem is that 800Z is right in that usage area where d*g*t*l excels. I think we've only gotten a reprieve.

    But as an encouragement, Neopan SS has been "discontinued" for many years, but it is still available.

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    Yet again another turnaround from Fuji - remember the one where they announced discontinuance of the Single 8 movie film, then did a u-turn. Then of course there was velvia - wonderful marketing and free adverising! Either they never intended to discontinue it in the first place or they just wanted to test the enthusiasm for their products.

    Incidentally I don't have a problem with this approach - it's great free publicity and creates a great image for them caring about the customers - clever. Maybe Kodak should try it too.

    *happy*. I only just shot my first roll of this film, and I think it is great. Quite amazing to get such good colours in low light.

    I'll be sure to buy some more of it in my next film order.
