And then there were two …


Sad news this weekend: Fuji is discontinuing Provia 400X. The Japanese film manufacturer is also cutting Neopan 400 black and white film from its range.

The news originated from Freestyle Photographic Supplies, who posted up a marketing announcment from Fuji on their Facebook page.

Provia 400X was the only E6 colour reversal film left with an ISO over 100, which made it particularly useful in Lomo cameras such as Holgas and Dianas with limited aperture control. Now there won’t really be an option for cross-processed slide film in anything less than bright, sunny conditions or in close-ups with a powerful flash, though push-processing Provia 100F might work.

Fuji is the only film manufacturer that still makes colour reveral film. They will continue to produce Fuji Velvia 50 and 100 and Provia 100F … but for how long? Fuji also makes AGFA Photo Precisa 100CT.

The photo above was taken with my last roll of Provia 400X. Here are some more:

Looks like it’s time to start stockpiling, if it’s not already too late.
