Tungsten film has been a long time favorite for night photography as the low ISO makes it good for long exposures. It also balances out the yellow/orange color that we usually get from street lights and generally gives a cooler tone.

A few months ago, Fujifilm made a few announcements regarding the future of their film line. Last April, they have ceased the production of the duplicating film, Fujichrome CDU II and in July, they discontinued the Fujichrome T64 tungsten film. The reason behind the decision was that sales for duplicating films has been declining over the years and the sales of T64 tungsten film has dropped off as well. They have decided to focus on the more popular line in the pro film range and continue to sell the discontinued films while supplies last.

Don’t worry, Lomography has tungsten films too!

    Nice! I recently discovered the awesomeness of cross processing Fuji T64 and just started hoarding. It's fantastic that Lomo is continuing this purple & red magic!!

    Alas, even the Lomo tungsten film is now gone. Hopefully they'll revive it again soon.
