Fuji makes a lot of Freestyles product. Legacy Pro = Fuji.

Say how? Slide film? They have been killing product at an incredible rate in the last couple of years.

I can handle a price increase, as long as they don’t do a Kodak and cancel any films.

My local camera store still has plenty of Kodak and Ilford films. I don't see how Fujifilm is the only game in town.

They might have. I don't shoot positive films. But the conversation really doesn't seem to be specific to color or positive film.

I was probably too facetious with my "only game in town" remark...but it seems to me like a lot of film choices are being discontinued with not a lot of replacements to take their place.

And Fuji is actually one of the worst culprits.
