A few years ago I special ordered some rolls of Bergger BPF 200.
When I peeled off the tape keeping the roll wound and cut off the
end, I found the tape was a "Forte" sticker. The film definitely
came out of the Forte factory. I was later told that bergger uses
their own emulsion recipe and hires forte to run batches of their
film. But ultimately the tests are the best judge. Jamie Young
