I was wondering who makes this stuff. The B&W 120 ISO 100 seems like the cheapest 120 film in the US.
I just bought some at $11.95 for 5 rolls, or $2.40 per roll. Thats less than Freestyle's Arista Edu, which is more like $2.85

The opened rolls backing paper doesn't look like the Freestyle Arista film so I guess it isn't Foma.
Is it Chinese ?

I bought some in 120, looks like a Kentmere type of Ilford off shoot. Dev times are about similar to Kentmere too

This question has been asked many times over the years. The seller has always been coy about the origins, they did say once in the past that the 100 was 'similar to fp4'.
