Fujifilm has announced plans to start offering black-and-white film again via the release of its new NEOPAN 100 ACROS II. The 35mm and 120 format film will launch this fall in Japan.
Though Fujifilm previously discontinued its black-and-white film offerings due to lack of consumer interest and production difficulties, recent shifts in market demand from millennials and GenZ customers have brought renewed interest in black-and-white shooting. As such, the company sees this as a great time to release a new generation of its NEOPAN 100 ACROS II film.
The black-and-white ISO 100 film stock uses Fujifilm's proprietary Super Fine-Σ technology and is being geared toward a wide range of shooting scenarios and exposures. According to the company, the film will offer "unsurpassed fine grain, sharpness and exceptional three-dimensional gradation even in bright highlights, when compared with the original NEOPAN 100 ACROS."
While the NEOPAN 100 ACROS II black-and-white films stock is currently only set for release in Japan, availability could expand to more markets based on demand.
