Definitely a film I’ll try again

After reading some review's on this I thought I'd give it a go. I was planing using it for low light shots and testing a lens I had acquired.
I have found the results mixed as was the light. All my daylight shots were bracketed 1 stop and the best result was the original metered exposure.
so if I use it again I will just keep it to the meter. Long exposure I used a phone app for reciprocity found the results way over exposed I need to work on that. Overall I quite like this film ,grain is good contrast is excellent.

Accreditation Handles:
Grainy, with beautiful tonality

Pleasantly surprised by this film, pulled one stop, and developed semi-stand reveals it's best side!

I would recommend for everything bar pinhole and low-light as it has a high reciprocity failure (this may be desirable for easy long exposure, but not for pinhole given the small aperture) and the film is not very fast nor suited to pushing unless you want lots and lots and lots and lots of grain :-)

It's £4! Buy some

Much better than the price may suggest.

Yes, Fomapan films are about the cheapest you can get, but don't be fooled into thinking that they give a "cheap looking" image.
As with a lot of films, it takes a roll or 2 to start to understand the best way to shoot and develop , but once you've got a reasonable grasp of that, you can get some really good images, and at the price point, you can afford to experiment with a few frames to try getting the shot you really want.
Why not grab a couple of rolls and head out to see what you can find? may just give you the shot you've been looking for!

great results would buy again

I ran this film through a Ricoh KR10 super to test it out and was not disappointed. I had some really nice results out and about in daylight.

The scans are just via DSLR on a lightbox and not the best quality, but hopefully I'll get round to doing some darkroom prints soon.
