    Freestyle is now selling a bw film it claims to have been made in the USA
    for them. Does anyone know who actually makes it? I don't know to many mfgrs
    are making bw in the US today.

  2. Before the industry "crashed" (Agfa went out of business, and Ilford
    "reorganized"), Freestyle's cheap film was made by Ilford and was
    every bit as good as the Ilford branded stuff.

    As part of the reoganization, Ilford stopped selling all of their black
    and white products except under their brand Ilford/Harmon.

    That film was sold off for a cheaply when it first went out of date
    and is now long gone.

    If I had a Holga, and could buy that film, I probably would as the defects
    would add to the "art", but that's a matter of personal choice. :)

    The specific film(s) I'm referring to are called 'Arista Premium' in their
    35mm iso 400 incarnations made in the USA.

  5. Does it have square sprocket holes, or slightly unusual looking ones with
    rounded corners?
