Last week we heard the notice that Fujifilm will end the production of the Fuji FP-100, the last instant film for 3x4" cameras. This will be the end of instant film for tradicional analogic like 4x5" large format systems and old 4x5 Polaroid cameras. That´s not a surprising notice because there was many rumors time ago of that. Some photographers in Spain says that the film who actually Fuji sells is not totally fresh. It will be frozen stocks of film and Fuji will had deceased the production time ago, but there are only rumors.
In few hours the portal Save.org received a petition for Fujifilm asking the continued production of this film. The petition have right now more than 13.000 signatures and growing. You can see the petition and sign here.
Well, the last news says next. Florian Kaps, co-founder of "The Impossible Project" is trying to save this film and he will meet Fujifilm management next week in Tokyo. That will mean a new product of The Impossible Project relationated with the actual Fuji FP-100.
Hope to have more news soon, the sells of this film was raised with the announcement and we probably will keep this film, with one brand or another.
