Fujifilm Announce End to Acros Films

11 April 2018

SIG: Analogue

 

Fujifilm have confirmed rumours that the company’s Neopan 100 Acros films will be completely discontinued in October of this year. 

 

A rumour began circulating several weeks ago after a document was circulated to film dealers around Japan announcing that the stock would meet its end in late 2018. Fujifilm officially announced on Friday that the line would cease production and ‘terminate’ sales between October 2018 and October 2019.

 

This comes just a few months after Fujifilm announced its 4x5 and 8x10 Acros 100 would be discontinued in May 2018. Fujifilm have specified that all of their black and white film and paper products are to be discontinued, as seen in a Japanese statement here.

 

Though Fujifilm have announced a number of cutbacks in its film manufacturing, the company announced in 2017 that its instant photography arm, such as the Instax cameras, have seen sales soar with 5 million units sold in 2016/2017 fiscal year.
