Film photographers and enthusiasts, brace yourselves for yet another bad news: Fujifilm recently announced that it has discontinued the Neopan 400 PRESTO for 35mm cameras and the Fujicolor PRO 400 120.
According to the English translation of a press statement dated February 28, as indicated in an article on Petapixel, Fujifilm has been finding it difficult to continue the production of these films due to decrease in demand. Fujifilm will be shipping stocks of Fujicolor PRO 400 120 and Neopan 400 PRESTO 35mm to retailers only until early May and June this year, respectively. To those who love shooting with the Fujicolor PRO 400 120 and Neopan 400 PRESTO 35mm, Fujifilm has offered the Fujicolor PRO400H and Neopan 100 ACROS as alternatives.

In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months!
