    Shame it's a nice film but definitely the 'third wheel ' in the marketplace.

    I actually love using Acros, there will be stock for ages yet, not immediate panic though.

    Didn't even know Fuji still made paper.

    Wont be long before fuji is completely out of film production. Acros is my favourite medium speed b&w, the best reciprocity rate known to mankind, its already getting hard to find it in sheet form. T-Max isnt too bad on reciprocity but doesnt have quite the same feel.

    Mind you, the name will live on as a film simulation mode in their digital cameras. When I had a rolleiflex T grey (really regret ever selling it) I don’t think I ever tried Acros

    This was Acros, but it was best for its reciprocity, no adjustment upto 120 seconds and only half a stop from 120 - 800 seconds

    Never used Acros but as a film enthusiast this is not a good sign.

    Stock up on some while you have the chance, its worth having some for when reciprocity would be a killer, has lovely tones and a nice fine grain

    Acros was special, reciprocity rate was unmatched and had a beautiful fine grain, still have a couple of boxes of sheet and a few rolls of 120 in the fridge.

    My favorite online retailers are all showing 35mm Acros as "discontinued". Luckly, I took delivery of 10 rolls today - it's the end of an era.

    Yes it's a shame.

    The long exposure aspect means nothing to me, I'd be in the pub long before I ever needed to photograph a landscape but it's a tremendous loss at whole to film photography.

    There are a few long exposure ideas available that seem interesting to me, not because the pub is a bad idea, it isn't.

    If the protective glass from a welding helmet works out, I'll post the results.
