    Is it perhaps faster version of the Orwo cine-films, N74? The development times look different though . . .

    How many german ISO 400 are there with seemingly unchanged major sensitometric characteristics, but nevertheless properties that reason a change of names?
    Look for similarities in name change between the spanish and the german films.

    It is possibly the ISO 400 aerial film coated by Agfa-Gevaert in Belgium (Aviphot Pan 400S), and then finished in Germany, ie cut etc & boxed , which would allow the statement "Made in Germany". Rollei sell a version of the Agfa-Gevaert film as Rollei Retro 400S.

    > and then finished in Germany, ...as Rollei Retro 400S.

    The new Rollei Retro 400S is Aviapan 200 (= Superpan 200 = Rollei Universal 200), which gives only 100 ASA when developed to normal contrast.

    That will mean Rollei Retro 400S is not Aviphot Pan anymore? Why this?

    The old Aviphot 400 was replaced with Avaipan 200 by Agfa.

    Maybe I was too enigmatic... I don't know that spanish film, thus I have to be careful.

    But from what both parties state there is indication to assume, as Martin already did, that
    "Argenti Reporter Film Plus" is the type 135 version of "Orwo NP-74plus".

    Yes, Argenti Reporter Film Plus is Orwo NP 74+, very nice film in my opinion and Argenti Pan-x 100 (APX100) I think is Orwo UN-54 also very interesting film.
