Ron, Fujifilm is now producing much more RA-4 color paper (on a mē basis) then film. RA-4 demand has been much more stable than film demand (a very high volume of prints from digital files are printed on RA-4 by high volume labs like CeWe and Fuji Eurocolor; that compensates to a significant extent the lower demand from the film side). In some major markets they see even increasing demand for RA-4 products. That's why they continue R&D and introduce new papers. Like the silver-gelatin papers for photobooks introduced at Photokina (I've seen them there, excellent quality).
