So i have been chatting to these guys back before the name change and have got some good feelings about this. I also pre-ordered a few rolls to test out!
I'm not affiliated with them but get very excited when i see new things!!!

Taken from their site:
"Kosmo Foto Mono is a 100-ISO panchromatic black-and-white film, perfect for all 35mm cameras.The film is a traditional black-and-white chemistry that can be developed with formulations such as Perceptol, Tetenal and Rodinal."

Anyways i think the pre-order is limited so get over there and get your orders in!!!

"The film is an existing emulsion made by a European film producer."

So it's not new, just something that's been renamed. They probably bought a big bulk roll from Agfa (the non-consumer films division still exists, making films for things like traffic cameras) and cut it up into 35mm width and added perforations.

It was/is Zorki Photo. Same packaging (apart fae the name) same owner, looking to maximise profits. Probably old Agfa or FOMA. Should be cheaper by about £1-£1.50. Wink
