Great Film

I love FomaPan film its so cost effective to use. I use it to test cameras and also for my other work. These were taken on a camera I was testing an Agfa Optima 335 Sensor. Very pleased with the contrast and grain. I was not expecting much with the Agfa Optima 335 Sensor lens and quality of it but was very surprised at what I got.

If you are testing a camera or using it for general all round this is a great film and well worth trying.

Budget film, great results.

Really a no nonsense, budget film, great for a broad range of use at 400 speed. Lovely glowing response to sunny day time shots.

Perfect for street photography on a budget!

If you’re looking for a gritty, somewhat grainy old fashioned looking image this’ll be great. Used it for street photography in London and absolutely loved it. Versatile, crisp, and gives the shots plenty of character and contrast. If you’re on a budget, you’ll love it.

Great value for money

I was influenced by the price because I haven’t used this camera (a Minolta X300) since the late 1990s, and the last time I used a black and white film was in the 60’s.
I just worked my way through experimenting with a variety of outdoor and indoor shots. I hate flash and the 400 film gives you the option of taking interior shots in natural light. Obviously this camera is a bit more sophisticated and allows more flexibility and less thinking than some of my older cameras.
I was really pleased with the results, and will definitely use this again.
