    Goodbye Acros Sheet Film

    Yodobashi has officially discontinued Acros in sheet film sizes. I have one order pending, and I'm hopeful they will fulfill it.

    It was good while it lasted.

    That's really sad. It was a great film.

    I've got a few boxes left that I picked when I was there last March. Oh well... at least we can get it in smaller formats.... for now.

    Sad news.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    This comes, sadly, from a nasty corporate policy showing low commitment with LF photographers.

    One day they can do the same with slides.

    Does this mean Fuji has discontinued production of Acros, i.e., it's a "dead" film stock?
    Or does it mean Yodobashi will no longer stock Across sheet film?

    I've got just a few sheets of 8x10 left, and a box of 4x5 in the freezer reserved for some special project someday. This amounts to a discontination of polyester sheet base, really. They've stopped making polyester chrome film too. It shouldn't affect 120 roll film, where I personally find ACROS harder to replace.

    Drew, IMHO it is also a painful loss for LF, long exposure night shots will be more difficult from now.

    Ari,

    The production of Acros in sheet sizes was discontinued some months ago. At that time, they announced that they expected stocks to last until May 2018. Obviously, people bought up all their stock much more quickly, and Fuji now has none. All the official distributors with whom I deal have no stock left. Fuji is expected to make one last 4x5 batch available in February, when my pending order will be fulfilled.
