Fujifilm to discontinue Sensia slide film
[compiled by KopiOkaya]
Fujifilm Professional has announced that the Fujifilm Corporation in Japan is to cease manufacture of the Fujichrome Sensia slide film range with immediate effect. Fujifilm’s Product Manager for Professional Film, Gabriel Da Costa explains the move: “Due to increasing production costs and decreasing demand globally, all Fujichrome Sensia film (100, 200 & 400 ISO) has been discontinued.
While the loss of Sensia will be a blow to fans of film photography, Fujifilm will continue to manufacture a range of other colour reversal films, as Da Costa says: “Fujichrome Provia or Fujichrome Velvia are both ready-made replacements for Sensia and both these ranges are readily available. Customers can continue to have their professional film processed and mounted using our Fujifilm E6 Processing Vouchers available from the laboratory itself. We will continue to support E6, C41, B&W and RA4 services for our customers.”
