Fuji Discontinues The Pro 800Z Film (Updated)

It’s sad news that the British Journal of Photography is bringing us. Apparently Fuji will cease production of the Pro 800Z film this September. Sure, it’s even more of a niche film then their other Pro line films, but it’s a really nice 800 speed film, with very little grain when exposed properly. It’s perfect for the Holga in winter, when the sun doesn’t come up too far, and obviously for shooting any other camera in low light, as The 10 cent designer proves.

My kind of house

It’s a shame really, but probably not very surprising. If it helps to keep the rest of the Fuji film Pro line on the shelves, so be it. Only thing left now is to buy a couple of boxes before it’ll vanish. Stocks should last till November, so get yours before it’s too late.

Update: Hot on the heels of me ordered three packs of 120 800Z film, the British Journal of Photography posts a news update informing us that Fuji Japan might not discontinue the film after all. Oh well. Now I have a stash of it, so that’s that. We’ll see what the final decision is going to be.

  1. sigh. well i’m glad you posted this so i can go stock up. i like it better than the portra 800 which tends to be sorta yellow-ish. at least for me it has.

    i wish this was like when they discontinue yarn, it always means they’re coming out with a “NEW” (but shockingly similar) yarn line. but i guess that’s likely not the case with film. 😦
