Fujifilm Announces Discontinuations - Fujifilm has confirmed that four of its films have ceased production.
Fujifilm has announced the discontinuation of four of its films.
The discontinued films are:
- Fujifilm Neopan 400 35mm black and white film
- Fujichrome Provia 400X 35mm and 120 colour transparency film
- Fujifilm Superia 400 120 medium format colour negative film
- Fujifilm Reala 120 medium format colour negative film
Fujifilm is recommending Provia 100F as 400X's replacement. Fujichrome Provia 100F Professional is an ultra-high-quality, daylight-type ISO100 colour reversal film able to capture details with unprecedented clarity, while providing rich gradation, vivid and faithful colour reproduction and well-controlled gradation balance.
In place of Neopan 400, Fujifilm is suggesting photographers switch to Neopan ACROS 100, which achieves the finest granularity for a 100 ISO black and white film due to Fujifilm's Super Fine-Grain Technology.
Fujicolor PRO 400H 120 medium format colour negative film is being recommended by Fujifilm as the official alternative to both Superia 400 120and Reala 120 films. Pro 400H incorporates Fujifilm's most highly advanced emulsion technology to produce smooth, natural-looking skin tones, with exceptional detail, to create a film that's perfect for wedding and portrait photography.
Fujifilm are advising consumers who use any affected films to purchase them now before stocks run out completely. Stock is subject to availability.
