    Erm, both RVP's are both still on poly base, unless you are party to some confidential information to the contrary? Why RDPIII is still on thick triacetate is a question I'd love to know an answer to, but which we'll probably never be told...

    Re: Goodbye Acros Sheet Film

    I suspect ACROS 120 is still safe for now, but given it's my main thing, I'm tempted to buy a small freezer (because tiny apartment) and stuff it full of as many pro-packs as possible just in case.
    So apparently my signature was full of dead links after a few years away...

Fuji is expected to make one last 4x5 batch available in February, when my pending order will be fulfilled.

    Thanks, Kumar; disappointing news, indeed.

    I just bought a few boxes of 4x5 from B&H. I can't afford to spend the money but, oh well.

    Dang -- I knew I should have bought the 4 boxes of 8x10 ACROS100 I saw in Kyoto last month! I bought two 5-roll boxes of it in 120 instead. I was using 120 and had no good way to hold on to four 8x10 boxes while traveling! Nothing can be done...
