I'm going to be the contrarian, I think Fujifilm is managing their exit strategy with their film business. Fujifilm Canada no longer lists or carries traditional film stocks in their distribution centre. There is speculation out there that Fujifilm is cruising on master rolls kept in cold storage and have not been making traditional film for some years now.

With the re-introduction of Ektachrome in 35mm and later on 120, I don't really have a reason to buy Fujifilm products and I'm spoiled for choice when it comes to black and white films and I would rather support film manufacturers who in turn support and engage with the film photography community.
