Neopan Acros Returns

Fujifilm has today announced some fantastic analogue news.

Their Neopan Acros 100 black-and-white film is coming back, in 120mm and 35mm formats (anyway) by the end of the year.
However, although this is a new version of the beloved original, Fujifilm promises “unsurpassed image quality” and “world-class fine grain” as before.

It was the ultra-fine grain and sharpness deliverable from the original that we most loved and it compared favourably with its

T Grain contemporaries of Ilford Delta and T-Max 100.

Fujifilm also says that the new version will be suitable for shooting in a wide range of fields, such as product photography,

architecture photography, long-exposures and night photography.

Neopan Acros 100, first launched in 2002, was last available from us over a year ago but it was killed off as Fujifilm

sought to move out of the analogue film arena – many of its other colour negative and slide film offerings have also disappeared during this time.

With renewed interest in film photography, particularly from the younger photography users, it decided to rethink

its strategy on black and white film and re-enter the monochrome film market.

According to the company, “Neopan 100 Acros II will feature Super Fine-Σ technology for better

fine grain, sharpness, and three-dimensional gradation (even in bright highlights) compared to original Neopan 100 Acros film”.

Firstcall will, of course, update news of this significant announcement when we start to receive our first stock of Neopan Acros II.
