    Possibly FOMA - the 100 film has increased red sensitivity, so it's effective indoors speed is around 200.

    Clearly, concerning BRF 100 I have a doubt about the manufacturer. I have compared it to Fortepan 100, and it seems to be different. Foma is less probabilistic, because of the transparent PET base of BRF 100, compared to Foma Bluish PET base in 120. I don't know if it is possible for a manufacturer to shift base easily. Another point, the antihalation layer color: green! Only Forte and Filmotec have green antihalation layer.
    But maybe, there is no link...

    You mean that BRF 100 is Adaptation of Filmotec UN54 film?

    Rollei R3 is an adaptation of their T.S.F. PAN 25 a modification on their OrWo NP15.

    So why not for Bergger some small UN54 modifications on different base.

    It's always just a matter of specification, amount and payment.

    If you read at this http://www.maco-photo.de/files/image...lei_R3_eng.pdf you will see that Rollei R3 is coated by Tura, Duren.

    Tura was doing the packing and slitting for Rollei/Maco films till end 2005. The Tura company in Düren went bankrupted (2006) together with Agfa Photo (end 2005) because 95% of their business was comming from Agfa.
    A small company in Bergheim is confectioning the 35mm cartridges now for Rollei/Maco.
    It's not so strange that some production steps are done outside a company. Due to their former DDR contacts I am sure Filmotec (Wolfen, former OrWo, ORginal WOlfen) have also connections in Hradec Kralové (Foma).

    Yes, emulsioning and coating. Look at: www.filmotec.de

    Their main products are BW movie films. A very stable business. They are market leader in some areas.

    It seems that though the BRF15 & 100 may be new to linhofstudio's catalogue, from a Google search they seem to have been introduced last year. So clearly the current stock was not made by Ilford. According to the search some people claimed they were made by Forte but in view of what has been said above this may not be correct. One of life's little mysteries I guess.
