I tried this film on a cloudy day with an old Zeiss Ikon Nettar. I found I had to fiddle a lot in post to get results I was happy with, but I'm putting that down to my complete lack of experience, and the fact that I was trying to scan the images myself. It's a great film for beginners like me as it's cheap.
I wanted to give this B&W film a try as after some research it seemed to be my kind of film with a nice contrast and deep blacks without clipping. Tried it with a Bronica 6x6 on a landscape scene and I was very pleased with the results very sharp with a fine grain. A fine film at an unbeatable price.
Would highly recommend this film to people who don't want to spend a lot on film.
I've shot this in 35mm in my Rollei 35 and 120 in my Bronica ETRS and it never fails.
The photos are always nice and crisp with plenty of contrast and detail.
There's a nice clear image and I am always pleasently surprised when I get Fomapan photos developed.
At this price point you can't go wrong.
It's a film I regularly buy and develop because of its cheap price and consistent amazing results. The film offers a good amount of contrast when exposing correctly and even more when underexposing by one or two stops. It has relatively fine grain when used at stock iso. I've pushed this film all the way to 1600 and the contrast at that speed is insane yet the grain is still pretty fine for that speed. It also has pretty good dynamic range as I usually meter by eye when using this film and I don't think I've ever gotten frames that were unusable because of it. Another nice touch is that the paper wrapper that you use to close off the film at the end has a sticky back that can be peeled off and used to tape up the film at the end of the roll which I prefer over using that envelope style glue which needs moisture to become sticky.
Highly recommended for those who don't want to spend too much.
