So…. I’m a little late to the sad party, but it was announced back in February that Fujifilm will be stopping production of its FP-100C peel apart pack film. It was the last hold out for pack film in the world.  Here’s some links: DIYPhotography.net, Petapixel.com, DPReview.com, PolaroidLand.net (this one also includes a good overview of the current standing of instant film in general). The black and white version , FP-3000B, was discontinued a while ago in 2014, and Polaroid threw in the towel with their pack film even earlier in 2008. Luckily, I still have a small stash of film that I’ve squirreled away for person use, but after that’s done, I guess I’ll need to find something else to occupy my photographic habits.  Maybe those cute Fuji Instax cameras?

There’s a petition asking for the Impossible Project and Lomography to step in and pick up where Fujifilm is leaving off. The Impossible Project picked up the last Polaroid production machines when they closed their factories, and are currently producing their own instant integral films, so there’s hope…

In the meantime, I’ve posted some pictures I took at the Charlton Mill in Fall River, MA.
