Fujifilm Discontinues Neopan 400 and Provia 400X

8

Over the weekend, news broke out that Fujifilm has confirmed the discontinuation of their Neopan 400 B&W film as well as their Provia 400X slide film.

It was great while it lasted.

“We know that any discontinuation of a well-loved and long established product can be difficult to adjust to for both the retailers and the end-user. However, in order to gain efficiencies and proper utilization of line capacity, it is necessary to review volumes and make appropriate decisions moving forward.” — Fujifilm Bulletin

In line with this loss, Fujifilm recommends Neopan 100 and Provia 100F as product replacements for the newly discontinued variants. This leaves us with just the Neopan 100 as the remaining option for Fujifilm B&W film, and just Provia 100F, Velvia 100 and Velvia 50 for slide film.

    Suddenly new AGFA APX 100 and 400 have appeared. New production... As Fuji has only recently brought the Neopan 400 back to the market I guess that at least the APX 400 will be relabelled Neopan 400. Why? Because both "new" Agfa slide and CN films are really Fujis in disguise.

    I new it was comming since Fuji didn't show new boxes for 400 reversal film. I wasn't a big fan of 400X as it's not crossing well enough for me. But it's a loss anyway. Hopefuly they will still continue other films.
