Foma traces its origins back to Prague in 1919. They have remained in the Czech Rupublic ever since, working throughout the past century on different films, papers and chemicals for use by medical schools and the military - as well as ordinary photographers in Eastern Europe. Their black and white films are the result of decades of expertise - you will not be disappointed!

Love Love Love

I'd just shot a roll with StreetCandy and then a roll of this FomaPan. Whilst SC has a more aged softness to it, its not very forgiving (I shot full frame) and the shadows have alot of grain, where as I shot FomaPan on my Pen FT half frame, treating it as 200 (its 400), and the results are beautiful! Soft gradients, sharp where its needed if the light was there.. and very forgiving on my metering.

Have a Rollei 400 RTX(?) currently in the chamber.

I have to say I messed this one right up. I thought it would process fine in Cinestill DF96 as most black & whites have but images came out muddy, grainy & really underexposed. It could have been user error but I processed it exactly as I would other black & whites. I've attached a couple of keepers that came out alright but most of the film wasn't great. Of course this is my personal experience. In traditional chemicals it will probs turn out great.

Great Film

I love FomaPan film its so cost effective to use. I use it to test cameras and also for my other work. These were taken on a camera I was testing an Agfa Optima 335 Sensor. Very pleased with the contrast and grain. I was not expecting much with the Agfa Optima 335 Sensor lens and quality of it but was very surprised at what I got.

If you are testing a camera or using it for general all round this is a great film and well worth trying.

Budget film, great results.

Really a no nonsense, budget film, great for a broad range of use at 400 speed. Lovely glowing response to sunny day time shots.
