To those few of us still using 8x10 colour transparency,
Even though we knew it was going to happen, this still hurts:

A shame and there isn't a single box on eBay it seems! That said, I do have a preference of Provia over Velvia to be honest. But any loss of film isn't a good thing.

The only Fuji tranny film I liked was Astia and it went a long time ago. It was the best Kodak reversal film that Kodak never made.

AFAIK, it is still going to be sold in Japan (albeit expensive).

velvia 50 has been discontinued in all sheet film sizes. not only 8x10. i am sad to see it go and will miss 4*5 velvia 50.. velvia 100 is still available but we all know its not the same. luckily for me i generally only shoot black and white in 4*5 and bigger, reserving my colour work to my 120 rolls...

Crumbs. $500 for 20 sheets of 8x10. You'd use that sparingly. I shall stick with B/W for 8x10 I reckon.
