Fujifilm Discontinues a Number of Formats from the Velvia Film Lineup

This year hasn’t been very friendly to Fujifilm’s film lineup. The company has already announced the discontinuation of APS films, the cutting of some less popular films, and a worldwide price increase. The bad news doesn’t end there: the British Journal of Photography is reporting that the company is making major cuts to its popular Velvia brand, a film known for its resolution and color saturation.

The films getting the axe are Velvia 100F in 35mm, 120, and 4×5 formats and Velvia 50 in 4×5 and 8×10. The last shipments of these films will be around the end of this year. Luckily for smaller-format shooters, Velvia 50 will still be available in 35mm and 120.
