I got notice of this too. But, I wonder if any of the red extended films are just rebranded Agfa Aviphot

aerial films like many Rollei retropan, JCH.

Film Washi claim to be an independent manufacturing company so it could be legit ?

 Film Washi's tech pub(no spectral curve) states sensitization up to 750nm which is the stated same for Rollei Retro 400s(Agfa-Aviphot) so, I'm suspicious.

If it is the same I'm not sure why they would not also rebrand the 120 format....

Well, why not contact Film Washi for their repsonse? I did so, we'll see what they say.

I forgot; It's been over a week and I haven't heard back from Film Washi as to whether their Z film is rebranded Agfa-Gaevert Aviphot aerial film. Anyways, they have a Russian surveillance ISO 500 film with spectrum to 690nm I would like to try.

good to see that there is a 'local' retailer in the next state. ;)
