Good news! Now if they start to make it in 120, that would be really great.
If the raw material problem has been solved and it is good news if it has then I would have thought that the Fuji announcement would be that production of the 120 film will be re-started.
I never knew 135 had been cut! Supplies have been OK here. Glad it's back as it's my favourite, but odd that I never knew it had gone away...
Seriously, this is like one of those things that goes on behind closed doors that you never really know about...who knew Neopan 400 was going to be discontinued? And then revived. To most people, it's going to just seem like they kept making it right along...in stock at B&H, et al, right now.
But great film, and good to hear. At least Fuji has now brought back two films...Velvia 50 and Neopan 400 135. But what about 120 format Neopan 400?
It's good to hear others may be thinking more progressively regarding film's future. And aren't hiding from any modest increases in market demand.
I've never tried Neopan 400 and I don't shoot 135. If this comes back in 120, what's it like? Is it a fine tabular grain like Acros or TMY2 (probably my 2 favourite films) or is it more of a Tri-X/HP5 kind of thing?
And while Fuji is bringing stuff back, how about bringing a few more of the C41 emulsions back in 120 (160C!) and 4x5.
