    Cool info. Thanks!

    I think that it might be like baked beans - a manufacturer brand labelling its products for different wholesalers.

    I just bought a pack of 100 Edu Ultra in 4x5 size. So today, 2017, is it Foma? Or possible it's something else?

    Just asking for education, not really to diss one company or another.

    Well for one thing, I always pre-soak my films in my Jobo, and Foma is the only film that yields green pre-soak water when drained. Arista.EDU Ultra looks exactly the same.

    I can't recall the notch codes as I've only used "real" Foma branded film in 120 so I'd have to look it up. But I'm convinced - it's the same thing.
