Thank you for that. The set-up looks very convenient to handle.I think the leaflet is quite descriptive:

There is no inner packing.
Good old-fashioned cassettes that are easy to dismantle and reload. I have plenty of them myself from before the digital revolution, but it's nice to know they are still available somewhere.Foma have been offering these for quite a while now via their own store. As for cassette shortage - they've been selling them as well: https://fomaobchod.cz/en/photographersrequirements/metalsnapcapdxcoded/
I've been wondering why only Fomapan 100 & 400 and not 200? Has to do with the more fragile emulsion of the latter?
Yes, it is fully prepared including the leader. You just open the container in the dark, remove the rubber that secures the film on the spool and insert it into the empty cartridge. One minute of work including warning the family not to turn on the toilet lights
it is apperently a roll of film just as it would be prepared normally, except the step of inserting it into a Cassettes has been omitted. so the leader would be cut, the other end attached to a spool. One assumes the edge printing and frame numbers are also in placeI may have missed it but is the leader already cut on each refill?
Out of curiousity, I asked Freestyle if they might carry these, and was told that they checked with Foma, and the stock available was not unlimited, and so freestyle would not be getting any. anyone in Europe who wants some probably should order faster rather than slower.Foma have been offering these for quite a while now via their own store.

I was about to buy a couple of boxes of those little metal cassettes; I have three bulk loaders, and I think two of them have film in that I should be using. I have a small supply of old cassettes, but more and newer might be good. But as far as I can see, Foma won't ship outside the EU.
Yes, freestyle has carried the 4 Foma films for many years. 100, 200 and 400, and also the 100 Reversal B&W. In addition that have a line of 100, 200 and 400 as "Arista EDU Ultra" that happens to come from the Czech republic. Up to now, all of those films come in Non-reloadable, metal cassettes.Looks like Freestyle carries this but pre-spooled(?):
Fomapan 100 Creative is panchromatic sensitized, black and white negative film of the speed ISO 100. This film is characterized by high resolution, wide exposure latitude and fine grain.www.freestylephoto.com
Comes in other speeds as well.
