The end of ReraPan

A fellow 127 enthusiast told me last week that ReraPan has been discontinued.

I was surprised. A couple of weeks ago I bought some at a local camera store, and no one said anything about it.

Sadly, it's true.

Even more ominous,

A web search on "Rerapan discontinued" led me eventually to an announcement of this on Freestyle's Facebook page on March 8 ... yes, I am not on Facebook. Freestyle said in the comments on that post, "this isn't the end of ReraPan. #SecretProject."

So for now, at least, our options will be:
  1. bulk HP5+ (you can order this once a year; the ordering window for this year just ended);
  2. expired 127; and
  3. cutting down 120 film - watch this space for a new method!
There's speculation that ReraPan may have been respooled Acros. This makes sense in light of the  discontinuation of Acros. And in my humble opinion, explains why ReraPan is so beautiful.

I'll miss it ... as I know many of you will. And I'll stay hopeful about the secret project.
