Fomapan 400, finer than HP5.

Never used this 120 Fomapan 400 before...usually its Ilford HP5@400. Results are ok, taken with Yashicamat 124g with light mete not working. So, educated guess work used for exposures. Not too bad, i would definitely use this again and work on exposure. Good film though.

Great for trying new cameras with

I won a Goodman Zone Z1 in a giveaway on the PetaPixel website and had a steep learning curve whilst learning how to use it. Fomapan 400 is ideal for this as it is cheap, can be developed in just about any developer and can handle a multitude of rookie mistakes. Trust me, I made plenty. Now I am a bit more comfortable using the camera I have started using more exppensive film, but I am glad I used Fomapan 400 at the start of my journey with this camera. It gave me a good base to work from.

A very bright morning

I`m still learning about Fomapan, on townscape shots it has delivered. I`ve often found adjustments in a Adobe finish the job off nicely

FOMOPAN 400 120 format Reliable for ALL scenarios, ( and to test cameras)

Misty & The waterfall,.
This was taken on a 1914 KODAK No1A AUTOGRAPHIC JR. bellows camera, I used a B&W 120 Foma 400 film, with spool adapters due to this camera actually taking 116 film which is wider than 120, very interesting exp, I will try again but I will be winding on 2 exposures at a time due to the size of the exposure window causing double exposures,
The film,as you can see, is truly adaptable and has a lot of forgiveness in it, considering it is pretty low on the film price scale it really gives much much more than you would hope for, if you haven't tried it, do, & then try it again, ooh, & don't forget to keep a roll in your camera bag, at all times

Nice contrasty film

I’ve only used this film stock once, to test a Holland I bought on eBay. I didn’t like the Holga much but I loved the fomopan. It was nice and contrasty, with nice grain. A v good budget option. This shot of the greenhouse is the one vaguely usable shot I got (that’s down to me, and the camera- not the film). I would use this again, in a camera with a lens not made of plastic.
