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!

Value For Getting Started

I have only had a large format camera for a few months and after getting to grips with it using paper negatives I wanted to start on film.
Foma 400 was a great price and has, so far, been an easy film to work with, both in camera and in the darkroom.
I would say that if anyone is looking for a budget entry into large format film photography then this is the one.

Awesome film!

IMO this is an amazing value for money! This is the first film I purchased when I stepped into the world of large format. I am almost at the end of my box and you can be sure I'll be ordering some more in the near future!

Impressive film

I've used Foma Action 400 in 135 and 120 formats before, always found it a reliable and versatile stock. Large format is a new venture for me so naturally went for an old favourite so that I could focus on using the camera, not experimenting with new film. Very happy with the results.

Perfect for: Portraits, Travel
Great Value B&W sheet film

Tried this out at a workshop quite a while ago where I was really pleased with the results, which is why I reordered some from Analogue Wonderland. Wanted a reasonably fast film to experiment with that was good value.
