    Fuji FP-100B is Gone, Forshadowing for FP-3000B and FP-100C?

    Hi all,

    So it looks like Fuji FP-100B is officially gone. To any of you who are in the know, is there any foreshadowing here regarding FP-3000B and FP-100C? I use the FP-3000B regularly and love the film so I would be devastated to see it gone. I also know that the FP-100C still has a fairly large commercial use in some places. Aside from the normal speculation, can anyone offer any insight here?

    I was on this forum the other day and read that there were reports of 100C being discontinued in 4x5.

    There were rumors earlier in the fall that both 3000B45 and 100C45 are being discontinued. It turned out to be true for 3000B; Fuji has already announced its discontinuation. 100C45 is still hanging in there, but I don't think anyone should assume it'll be around for much longer.

    I still have a bunch of the FP-100B in my shop, it never really sold that well. I would guess 3000B and 100C will be around for quite a while. Both sell very well. Who knows though. These companies can be fickle!

    Here's the thread: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum172/...continued.html


    FP-3000B45 will cease to be shipped around July 2012.

    I didn't even know 3000B45 was still around. We haven't been able to get it for the last year. I knew it would only be a matter of time for 100C45. Both FP-100B and FP-3000B sell very well in our shop so the news of 100B was a bit of a surprise to me. I've always used 3000B for the most part so as long as I still have that I'm content. It would be a real shame to see it all gone.
