    I just developed 3 rolls of 120 size Arista.EDU ISO 200. I think that it must be repackaged Forte as it says "made in Hungary" on it. The film is in the wash right now, but a quick look at the negs and they look alright. One thing that I noticed is that the film base is very thin. I noticed it when loading the film in the camera and on the dev reels. More when i get it printed.

    You know, it doesn't even matter what this stuff looks like. The film base is so thin it curls like crazy!! It sucks in the enlarger and the film scanner. I'm a big fan of the Arista Pro film (rumored to be Ilford), but this stuff is a pain in the butt.
