    Fuji Astia

    I'm getting to the end of my current supply of Fuji Astia and after checking with my usual suppliers here in the UK, I can't seem to find any. Is it still in production?

    It's in production, but it's no longer being imported into the UK. You can buy it from Maco in Germany:

    perkeleellinen - thanks for that info. I was aware that Astia was no longer available in the UK but had not yet tried to locate another source (I'll need some more Astia when I've finished using up the last of my K64 this summer )

    Just checked AG Photographics website...it says "This product is no longer available".

    (Fuji UK have definitely ceased importing Astia.)

    On Fuji's 'choosefilm' website, someone asked about Astia, this was Fuji's reply:

    Unfortunately Astia 100F is our slowest selling line in the UK. It was discontinued because UK minimum order quantities from our plant in Japan meant that stock would go out of date before it was sold. We cannot run a business efficiently if we do this for a handful of UK users
