    Yep, same on my batch. I assume it's either Adox or Foma, but I've never seen that confirmed.

    It could not be confirmed.
    As neither Adox nor Foma manufacture colour reversal film.

    In Europe only Agfa offers such film.

    LOMOCHROME is NOT color reversal, their ignorance of language infuriates me, this is a C-41 film... Though kodak did use the word chrome in the Verichrome name, it seems odd they chose this name, I think they got lazy and couldn't think of a "cooler" word that was C-41 and didn't care to totally throw off the film connotation that chrome means transparency.

    Thank you for correcting me. I should not rely on assumptions.

    Anyway, Agfa remains as only current source, otherwise it also could be Ferrania "old" stock.

    It's a fairly new emulsion, it's the first of my knowledge that is not "re-branded" but actually designed by request and so I don't think it would be Ferrania. It only came out a few months ago.

    Now I see, it is about the Lomochrome Purple. (My fault. I only think of that film with reference to purple.)

    This film is something different, but I would rather not speculate here.

    Just a nit to pick but I think they may be ignorant of the convention (or don't care) not necessarily language. There were other films called the "wrong" name before the chrome=positive and color=negative association became the standard. I think Verichrome (pre Pan) dates from that era.

    The suffix "-chrome" (or -chrom) not only indicated colour reversal material as Autochrome, but also hinted at panchromatic b&w negativ materials.

    EDIT: and orthochromatic materials


    The suffix "-color" indicated colour-reversal materials as Agfacolor.

    Humm, then why was there a Verichrome before there was a Verichrome Pan? Was the original Verichrome only somewhat panchromatic but a breakthrough for its time then Verichrome Pan was really panchromatic?
