Fuji announced that it is bringing black and white film back to market with the introduction of its new NEOPAN 100 ACROS II film.
“This 100 ISO film will deliver unsurpassed resolution, fine grain and sharpness, with exceptional detail satisfying a broad range of shooting scenarios and exposures. The 35mm and 120 format film will be introduced in Japan this fall, with other markets to follow, based upon demand.”
This is certainly a step in the right direction for the film enthusiasts out there; however, we still have to see enough demand before it shows up outside of Japan (although you can still find some existing stock of the original ACROS 100 in the US).
If that happens though, maybe we will someday get our beloved peel-apart Fuji FP-100C film back…?
