Neopan Acros 100 to return!...in Japan

Post by PFMcFarland » Wed Jun 12, 2019 11:49 pm

Fujifilm made an announcement about bringing back Acros 100, only in a new formulation with even finer grain.

It will only be available in Japan for the first year, and then marketed to the rest of the world. So be prepared for marked up batches of Neopan Acros 100 II on eBay and other sites.

I don't like to be a conspiracy enthusiast, but the timing of this does seem a bit odd. Just about the time they are running out on the stocks of old Acros, now Acros II comes to the rescue. Do you think that maybe they just wanted to clear out the inventory of the old stuff before bringing out the "new and improved" version?

Good news. I used to like the old Neopan SS. I think you may be onto something with you clearance thought. I would love to see it in 120.
If we all saw the world the same no one would need a camera.

It's also in 120, but still only in Japan for the first year.

It seems AcrosII is being shipped by now (11/22), and rumour is that it's made in the UK!
