I understand this is something of a hybrid film, somewhere between traditional cubic grain and modern T-grain technology. As such it doesn't look or behave much like Fomapan 100 or 400. It is it's own beast with it's own look. I have no troubles shooting at box speed, and find the images are a little lower in contrast than the other Fomapan products while the more modern grain structure also makes it less "gritty". This may well be what you're looking for in which case it could be ideal for your needs. It's a general purpose film, not specifically made for any one type of photography. I've used it for street photography, landscapes, nature and the odd portrait. It's good at everything. Also a great film to experiment with as it's very cost effective. Not really suited to low light photography or to pushing.
I've only shot one roll of this, and I'm seriously impressed, especially for the price. I took it for a walk on a gloomy, wet day, so my experience is limited to low-contrast, overcast daylight, but definitely got some nice, contrasty images, and had a lot of fun. I'd definitely recommend giving this a try. Photos shot on Pentax K1000
Fomapan 200 is a budget priced film and I got a very fair result. Trying it of course will be the way to find if its character suits you. LB
I’ve only shot one roll of Fomapan 200 so far. I decided to try it in two cameras, Canon T90 and a Canon EOS 600. Both have accurate exposure meters and I have some decent glass to play with.
I developed the film in Ilfotec DD-X (1:4 for 6 minutes) using my Rondinax tank, and I was pleasantly surprised by the smoothness of the grain and the tonal range of this film.
At the bargain basement price of £4 per roll, you really couldn’t ask for more!
I shot my latest roll of this film at box speed, but using Cokin A Series filters (Linear polariser and Orange) using my Rank-Mamiya 35mm Rangefinder camera. The film responds well to the use of filters, and is perfect for experimenting with. Grab yourself a roll or 2, load up, and shoot. At this price point, you can't go wrong.
