Fuji is officially set to discontinue FP-3000B, an instant b&w film, despite acknowledging a u2018dramaticu2019 rise in some instant film products in recent times.

The last shipment is due to reach the UK in March 2014.

In a statement, UK product manager Gabriel Da Costa said: ‘We have seen the popularity of many instant film products rise dramatically recently – in particular the new Instax camera, the Mini 90 Neo Classic.

‘Unfortunately, the demand for some instant film has declined…’

The ‘peel-apart’ FP-3000B delivers 85x108mm images and was targeted at industrial users, in addition to portraiture and other general imaging applications.

Fuji has pledged to continue to sell FP-100C, a colour instant film.
