    It's rebranded Fortepan. Which is good enough, whatever name it has.

    I asked the seller and he refused to tell me the origin. Just that it is "high silver" and therefore can sell a film of unknown origin to the price point of Ilford.

    When I questioned that, his conclusion was :
    So sorry Michel but that’s how it is! After all it’s your image quality not mine! As a highly educated photographer I believe I know what is good for me!
    Which I tought was a very nice thing to say to a potential customer

    You know, if it walks like a duck... I think I know who the seller is, and if it is him, he's buying directly from the factory as far as he has explained it to me. But nevermind - buy it and try it!

    If it’s Forte than its good and rich in silver! Some of my best exhibition images taken on Forte and not even that it had been printed on their pepper too! Mind you, if it’s Forte than we talk about an old Kodak company and probably those films are manufactured after their recipe! Which means? What? I don’t have to tell you do I?

    With a BIN price some 50% higher than Ilford film, I'll pass. Oddly, I can't find any UK supplier of Fortepan amongst the usual suspects...

    Cheers, Bob.

    I thought Classic Pan 200 was supposed to be the same?

    Well, it could only be Fortepan 200 or Fomapan 200T, and Fortepan seems more into the rebranding game, so that's a pretty likely possibility.

    ClassicPan 200, J&C Classic 200, and most likely Bergger 200 are all Fortepan 200.

    Can you whisper into my ears where I can find Ilford for that price you mentioned? Tree boxes 75 sheets of fresh film for 12 Euros? Because so far I would buy a whole one year of Ilford production!

    Whoops! missed that it is for THREE boxes...

    That sounds much more sensible!

    I do wish people would stop re-packaging stuff - I could get confused...!

    Cheers, Bob.
