One thing if you noticed is that – FUJIFILM has been on a killing spree with films and last year, one film that bit the dust was Neopan 100 Acros. But it looks like FUJIFILM is reviving their black-and-white film by announcing the successor to the discontinued one – meet the Neopan 100 Acros II. Yes, it’s back from dead people.
Fujifilm Neopan 100 Acros II
If you aren’t familiar with this whole film, Acros is a part of Fujifilm where they make pretty fantastic monochrome films. About a year ago, Fujifilm announced that they are discontinuing the Acros which is one of the few films from Fujifilm that got slaughtered. One of the reasons why Fujifilm decided to bring the Acros 100 back to life is because of millennials and GenZs who have become film enthusiasts and has changed the market once again.
According to PetaPixel, the Neopan 100 Acros II will feature a new technology called Super Fine- which happens to offer better fine grain, sharpness and a three-dimensional gradation compared with the original Neopan 100 Acros film. It will be made available in two different formats – 35mm and 120 medium format.
But hold your horses because the Acros II will go live for sale in Japan exclusively this fall and later on bringing into other markets where there’s a demand for the Acros II. So, I guess lets hope for the best and wait for it to hit all the shelves in Japan.
Maybe Fujifilm should revive every films they have killed so far – just bring the Natura back for the love of god.
