For the price this film is very good, I processed this shot in Hydrophen at 1+31. I found that it handles highlights and shadows well in this developer. Would recommend this as an alternative to likes of Kentmere 100.

A Great Film (For the Right Things!)

Fomapan has some really great characteristics that I love. Firstly, it blooms light, giving a very cinematic and retro feel to shots - especially backlit shots. Secondly, I find that, although coarse, the grain is quite pleasing for many different types of images and is certainly not distracting in the ISO 100 variant. It also renders mid tones fairly dark which can help produce moody images and it is particularly sensitive to the colour red, with red objects appearing far lighter than in many other black and white film stocks. The film also produces incredibly sharp images (when you nail focus, that is). Finally, the price of this film is excellent. The film does have some limitations however. Firstly, it's reciprocity failure is immense with exposures over 10 seconds needing to have shutter speeds increased by 8x and exposures over 100 seconds needing to be increased by 16x! This makes it highly impractical for long exposure photography - unless you wanting to do some incredibly long exposures or maybe you want to try out some long exposure photography but don't have dense enough NDs. Second, the dark mid tones don't help separate vegetation very well, making this film a relatively poor choice for landscapes. Being a 100 speed film, you will also likely need to take your tripod with you (unless it's a very bright day). There is a 200 speed variant (which I haven't tried) and a 400 speed variant, which I find to have grain that is far more pronounced and that I find distracting on most images (though it is still incredibly sharp so makes a great film for shooting close-ups and details). Once you know where this film struggles, you can use it on shoots which play to its strengths: portraits (especially when backlit to bloom the light); shoots where you want to add mood; shoots where you want to get a retro look; scenes where there is a great deal of light available; shoots where you want sharp images; shoots where you want to capture some (very) long exposures but haven't got a dense enough ND filter.

Great film for a low lrice

Really nice, standard contrast film. Easy to develop and rewarding images even in some trickier lighting situations. I think I'd have to have a very good reason to spend more on another brand. My only slight criticism is that I've had one or two that seem to have scratches all the way along the back of the film. They appear to have happened during manufacture as they continue onto the piece of film attached inside the cassette. So far they haven't affected prints so I won't bellyache about them any further. All in all a great little film :-)

Versatile, "Silvery" slow speed film

I use this all the time as my go to slow speed film. I meter for mids to even highlights and develop in ID-11. I find this gives me a dramatic "silvery" quality.
