Today, Fujifilm Velvia 100 is being discontinued by Fujifilm in America. And this time around, it’s not because of sales. It’s fairly well known industry knowledge that everyone reaches for Velvia 50 instead. But Fujifilm Velvia 100 is being discontinued only in America. Why? The answer is with Phenol, Isopropylated Phosphate. This chemical is part of the layers of Fujifilm Velvia 100. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) considers it a carcinogen. Even though photographers would never physically touch the layer, Fujifilm needs to discontinue the product. However, sales of Fujifilm Velvia may continue. You might want to go to Amazon right now and pick some up.
