There are a few days left for 2020 (well, 2 at the time of publication) and like 2019, we didn’t see any film stocks being discontinued. A small blessing, given everything else that’s been going on. I was hoping for official news of a couple of new film stocks at least but you’ll have to wait until 2021 to hear more about those.
Perhaps we’ll even beat 2019’s score of new film stocks/formats: ILFORD ORTHO PLUS, Fujifilm NEOPAN 100 ACROS II, Lomography LomoChrome Metropolis XR 100-400 Kodak EKTACHROME E100 in 120 and 4×5 (and now 8×10).
