Foma Fomapan R - 35mm Film
Our Price: £6.00 GBP100197
A true rarity - black & white slide film! This 35mm will need special processing, but will reward you with B&W positive images on a clear base. And this is no gimmick either, the emulsion is high quality and will give you very fine grain and resolving power for beautifully detailed photos.

Foma traces its origins back to Prague in 1919. They have remained in the Czech Rupublic ever since, working throughout the past century on different films, papers and chemicals for use by medical schools and the military - as well as ordinary photographers in Eastern Europe. Their black and white films are the result of decades of expertise - you will not be disappointed!

This was my first time using a slide film and honestly I am shocked with how clear these shots came out. I took this film with me to a protest on a rainy day and still was able to get low-grain clear shots with good shading.
I'm putting this film on my favourites list.
Fomapan R100 is often overlooked compared to the new Adox Scala film when looking for a suitable b&w slide film, but it shouldn't!
Designed specifically as a cine-reversal film by Foma Bohemia, this film contains a special anti-halation masking layer within the emulsion which prevents light-scattering and makes for super-sharp slides.
Contrast is moderate to high, and the crystal clear base makes projecting this film a joy.
As with all b&w slide films exposure is more critical than with normal b&w negative films, so double check your exposure meter.
This can be developed at home using Foma's special reversal kit.....or you can send it to SilverPan ;)
black and white slide film is a bit of a lost art form so its nice to see some still being sold, the only downside is that for a positive it requires a very specific developing process that not a lot of labs will do! thankfully there are labs that will do it so you will be able to get this developed just maybe at a higher cost than usual
