    There's a petition, of course (hellz yeah, I signed it! You can too! :D ) but apparently there's actually going to be a meeting with Fuji on March 17th to discuss continuing production of the FP-100C. The Journey Begins

    Perhaps this might even have some teeth. I'm not getting my hopes up, but still going to keep my fingers crossed.

    Oh! Doc Florian! I'm in.

    Ya know, I'd thought about that, wondering if he would get involved and try to do something like what he did with Impossible Project film production.

    Go get us some film Doc!

    This guy is awesome. Analog lovers, and in particular pack film lovers, are lucky he's out there, able and willing to put so much effort into this! :586:

    I wasn't aware of CatLABS before. I see they are the US distributor of Jobo products.

    I'm happy to see someone is picking up the ball from Fuji on packfilm. It would be a shame if that film and all those great cameras were to die off.

    I've never heard of them, either. No doubt they were waiting in the wings to see about Fuji's final decision before making this announcement. I got an email yesterday from Francesco Gasperini about Fuji's final decision...he was not happy, to say the least. He and others made a real effort on various proposals to Fuji, and it's got to be a bitter pill to swallow.

    Best of luck to CatLABS, then! :icon_thumbsup:
