    I confirm. And from that kind of film I thought that Foma did have a clear base from day 1. It appears from this thread that Foma previously had a different base.

    This confirms the switch in base for 120. So far the emulsion looks the same.

    The emulsions are the same but for the 120 roll film, Foma changed from Blue Polyester base to Clear Polyester base, started in April 2012 with the Fomapan Creative 200 film.

    Does anyone know if this is what the UltrafineOnline (Photo Warehouse) 400 is? That's not a bad 120 price in quantity.

    VERRRRY Interesting. The New data-sheet also specifies that the edge printing can say "Fomapan" or "ULTRA" I wonder if this indicates that freestyle is selling a major part of their output?

    "FOMAPAN 400 Action is available in the following sorts:
    – 120 rollfilm 60 mm wide, exlusively on a 120 spool; identification edge markings:
    „ULTRA 400“
    – double-edge perforated 35 mm film in 135-36 cartridges for 36 exposures
    24x36 mm; bulk lengths of 17, 30.5 and 50 m in a darkroom packaging;
    identification edge markings: „FOMAPAN 400“ or „ULTRA 400“
    – sheet film (for large-format cameras) sized 10 x 15, 13 x 18 and 18 x 24 cm in a
    box of 50 sheets.
    "
