    Another quickload question....

    There seems to be a lot of conflicting info on quickload film being available.

    The shelves here in Japan are oozing Fuji quickload film. Is this exclusive to Japan?

    It'll be like Kodachrome withdrawn from overseas markets first and the remainder sold in the home market while existing stocks last.

    When was the official discontinuation of quickload? Seems odd that there would be so much fresh quickload. There wasn't even a notice about "while supplies last."

    They've been gradually disappearing from various markets as stocks ru out rather, there were announcements that they were being discontinued here in the UK a year or two ago.

    You're seing only small amounts relative to the global market.

    For the most part, yes.

    I wish Fuji had a better distribution system. I really miss the Acros QL and the FP100b Fujiroid B&W. The stuff seemed to suddenly disappear from the shelves.

    Fuji have a very good distribution systems but when products are no longer made then items get withdrawn from some areas before others. It's termed phased withdrawal.

    There's nothing stopping you from buying from a Japanese supplier, except possibly the language. Don't worry we learnt a long time ago foreigners understand if you speak louder

    If Acros QL were still being made and available here that would be reason enough for me to get a QL holder. But it isn't, so I'm not.

    I'm probably just going to stick with sheet film in the end. Across in QL is about 5 bucks a shot and standard sheet is about 2 bucks a shot.
