    Who makes the new Freestyle B/W film

    Freestyle new Artica II B/W is made in Germany, who makes this film? At $1.99 a roll may be a good shot around film. I have been using Formapan Action 400 which I like a lot, but any price brake in a storm.

    If you mean Freestyle's Arista II it is actually Agfa APX100 or 400 :-) that's no lie!

    The Arista EDU film is actually made by Foma which is what you are probably shooting right now when you buy fomapan 400.

    I believe that the Freestyle film is:

    Arista II : Agfa
    Arista .EDU: Forte
    Arista .EDU Ultra: Foma
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!

    Obviously stocks of the first two will be hard to replenish...

    Arista EDU ultra just went up in price if I'm not mistaken. I think it was 1.39 for the 100speed 120bw a month ago but I could be wrong about that.

    Yes, that's true. The third option, Arista.EDU Ultra is pretty good for the price though. Something to consider anyway.

    I will stock up with Arista II while I can, I used Agfa APX 400 and liked it in Edwal 12. At $1.99 a roll, looks like real value for the money. I would have quessed that all of the old Agfa stock would be gone by now.

    I bought 50 rolls of the Arista II, it's excellent value for money. And I too would have thought AGFA stocks would be well extinct by now, but apparently we underestimated exactly how much there was in so many places.

    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    It certainly isn't extinct at Freestyle; I called them up and they say they have several thousand rolls of Arista II 400 left, as well as over one thousand 100' rolls. Methinks my freezer is hungry...it keeps begging to be filled with soon-to-be-gone film...
