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.
