Yet another piece of unfortunate news makes its way to our feed today as Kodak Alaris announces the halting of the production of its BW400CN film stock.
In a discontinuation notice issued last August 14, the company explained that this move was “due to a steady decline in sales and customer usage.” Photographers would still be able to get their hands on this film stock, as there’s supposedly enough in the market to last “for up to six months, depending on demand.”
“We empathize with the Pro photographers and consumers who use and love this film, but given the significant minimum order quantity necessary to coat more product combined with the very small customer demand, it is a decision we have to made,” Kodak Alaris elaborated.
The BW400CN film has been popular among analogue shooters for its sharp, fine grained photos conveniently processed in C-41. To close this news feature, here are a few photographs taken using the BW400CN by our community members:

Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
We are officially half way through the year and summer is in full swing! This is the perfect time to stock up on film, get out your cameras or book yourself onto one of our fab workshops. This month you can choose from an LC-A+ walk or two LomoChrome Purple workshops!
