Fujifilm has posted a notification on its website apologising for the lack of availability of its 35mm colour negative and reversal (slide) film. They expect that things will be pretty tight for a while due to the availability of raw materials. Fuji cites some specific films in its apology and says they’re currently taking measures to help “ensure a stable supply of products” as quickly as they can.
The cynic in me wants to say that this is a prelude to discontinuation. Fuji has a habit of doing that, even when there aren’t global shortages of raw materials. Something becomes difficult to get and then they just decide “well, the market’s too small anyway” and then just discontinue the product. I hope this isn’t how it turns out, but this is Fuji we’re talking about.
