Their black and white films are the result of decades of expertise - you will not be disappointed!

Not disappointed

The 400 iso version is sharp enough and has quite visible grain on medium format. Probably stick to 200 or lower is using 35mm. Can't say it's my favourite but only used one roll so unfair to say that without using it a bit more. Recommend trying it as it's not over priced and is a good preformer.

Nice Cheap film

This was the first film I used in my Bronica ETRS and at night and all though most of the image were under exposed, My own fault not the film the ones that were ok looked good and loved the grain on the images too.

quality on a budget

would 100% recommend 120 (or 35mm!) fomapan as a cheap test roll for mystery cameras, as the results belie the cheap price tag.
the forgiving exposure latitude of the 400 film is super useful, especially in basic cameras like the Diana F+ with no facility for ISO adjustment.
gives a satisfying contrast & a fair amount of grain :)

Foma not FOMO

Having shot a lot of Fortepan back in the 90s and noughties as a cheaper alternative to Ilford or Kodak, I was keen to check out Fomapan. I was hoping for a more old school tonality compared to the likes of TMax-something that can be hard to pin down but you know it when you see it. Since Foma were set up just after WW1, it's likely Josef Sudek used their materials to produce many of his classic images.
The grain may not be as fine as more modern films, but that's hardly an issue in 120, especially if you're not making massive prints and you choose your developer with care (Atomal for me).Tones were pleasingly subtle and the foliage in my woodland shots well separated. It gave me the more timeless feel I was looking for and I'll certainly be using Fomapan 400 again and look forward to further experimentation with developers . Give it a go, fellow photo pickers!

Ideal film for all types of Photography

Much cheaper than the well known 400 speed films. If your not a sheep and one of those it’s got to be Tri-x if your doing street photography man, then this film will suit any situation. Beautiful grain at box speed. I’m also not one of those you got to push film types. I only push film if the situation requires it and not because it’s the in thing. Pushing this film 2 stops is I think ok. But I’ve only done it once. D76 1-1 I find the results are great a little low in contrast but I like that. I find that in the darkroom I get better prints using filters. Woodland photography the film has some great tones and rendering of the greens is very good. Urban photography again no problems at all. Definitely give it a try
