The japanese photo brand Fuji retracts a former statement to stop the production of Single-8 films. On January 10th Fuji announced: "Our Single-8 films both R25N and RT200N were going to finish the production in March 2007 and its processing service was going to finish in September 2008. However due to the consumer's strong wish, we decided to change our plan and continue the film production and processing service. The sales quantities of the Single-8 is decleasing, also it is necesary to repair the film production machine and processing machine, therefore I would like to ask the customer to understand raising the price."

Tak Kohyama, owner of the Japanese company retro8.com, explained: "There was a lot of protest from professional film directors and amateurs here in Japan. Newspapers like Asahi published articles about the protest. The public made Fuji change his mind." More details in the next issue of smallformat.

Decleasing? Bad word and letter to mispell, in this context. :P

I think it's great that the public protest had enough impact. It's good to know Fuji listens.
