Fujifilm announced that it will no longer produce FP-100C. Instant photographers reacted with an online petition, which got more than 7,000 supporters in two days. The letter called on major film brands, including Lomography, to get the peel-apart film back in the market.
“We love to shoot with this cameras and wait for the results, this is a kind of magic,” wrote Francesco Gasperini in a signature petition hosted by Change. 314 more signatures are needed to reach a quota of 7,500.
Fujifilm FP-100C is a color instant film of the peel-apart variety. A negative strip is isolated or “peeled” to reveal the print. In recent years, integral film—which has the negative inside the paper—has been the popular choice among instant photographers.
But FP-100C still has a niche of loyal users. Some of them have even uploaded shots on their Lomography homes.
