Fine grained and great value. Gives good low contrast and detail. Have used for family portraits with very pleasing results. Will definitely use more of this in good light. Highly recommended for beginners.
This is the real stuff, when you think "black and white film" you probably conjure up images of deep contrasty images with noticeable but pleasing grain. That's Fomapan 100 in a nutshell and since trying it in 2015 it has become my "go to" medium speed film. I've shot about 100 rolls and it's never let me down. No scratches, no lines, unlike the 1* reviewer I process all my film myself and I don't need to take any more care with Fomapan than I do with the big brand B&W films. It's also a joy to handle as it doesn't curl, dries almost flat and is easy to print or scan.
I tend to shoot at box speed, others suggest 80 or even 64 ISO. I don't find the need to over-expose or over-develop using ID-11 stock. Mileage may vary with diluted ID-11 or developers like Rodinal. What I find is that I get exactly what I would expect from an old school B&W film. This reacts to light just like the Plus-X and HP4 I learned on in the 70s and 80s. Beautiful contrast from almost ink black to white. A yellow filter will help bring out detail in bright skies. I don't even bother with FP4+ now, or Delta 100 or TMAX 100. Lovely films though they are, Fomapan 100 gets my vote at this end of the speed scale.
The cheap price of Foma 100 may lead you to think it lacks quality, but it really does not. Images are sharp, and the tones are incredibly rich. This sample image attached shows the kind of look I'm talking about. I haven't tried it with portraits yet but I think it would be excellent for that. I'm looking forward to getting more in future, especially with the coming summer where ISO100 film becomes a much better option.
Great value, excellent results. Recommended.
