    Fuji Velvia 100 in 4x5

    Hi Everyone,

    Has Fuji Velvia been discontinued in 4x5? Badger Graphic says that it has been discontinued, but I still see it listed at Freestyle and at B&H. What gives?

    This is weird. I just checked B&H and they show two different listings for Velvia 100 4x5, differing only in the letters NP in the B&H stock number and different Fujifilm catalog numbers:

    One version is shown as In Stock, the other as Discontinued.

    Thanks for this follow-up. I think I'll make a couple of calls tomorrow to find out more. I hadn't seen the second discontinued listing at B&H. You're right, it is really weird.
    I also just checked with Adorama, and they list Velvia 100 in 4x5 ALSO AS DISCONTINUED! This is horrible.

    If the b&h graphics are right, the label on the new box is different. Could it be a different formulation or just a Fuji catalog number change..

    The old packaging is discontinued. Fuji has a different SKU for the new packaging. It's the same film, same emulsion just a different box and label. Kodak did something like this last year with HC110.

    Very interesting.

    The new B&H stock number is the same as the old one, with the addition of the letters NP.
    I wonder if that simply means New Package.

    UPDATE: I just got off the phone with Badger in Wisconsin and the salesman confirmed: THERE WILL BE NO FUTURE stock of Fuji Velvia in 4x5. Thanks, Fuji!

    Looks to be the same for 8x10 according to Badger...

    Thanks for letting us know, I just bought some from Adorama for $72.70 per box for a future project, should be set since I don't really need more beyond that. I bet all Fuji E-6 is gone in 5 years or less, sorry to say....

    Everybody raid Rick "King Tut Quickload" Denney's freezer! He's got lots of it!! He's got so much he's going to be buried with it!

    First it was Kodak, and now it's Fuji. You want color? You go to Kodak. No choice. No more E6 for LF.

    I wonder how soon Provia will be gone.
