I bought a roll of this inexpensive film to test a 1960s SLR and was pleased with the results. I like the grain at 200 ISO. The film has a warm, soft, almost sepia-like quality. If you are looking for a vintage feel to your photos, this would be a good choice. Can't really go wrong at this price.
I like Foma 200 and shoot it a lot, particularly in my Former Soviet Union (FSU) cameras. It's a medium contrast film with a fine grain if treated properly. One thing that you do have to bear in mind is that Foma tend to fib about ISO ratings (they are not alone in this). The native ISO for Foma 200 is actually around 125 - shoot it at this speed you will be rewarded with good detail and a fine grain. It has a soft, vintage, feel to it that suits older cameras. It seems to benefit from stand dev - I tend to use Caffenol CL, but Rodinol also works well. I agree with the other reviewers that it doesn't push well - EI 125 is the sweet spot IMHO. Try a couple of rolls, it's a classic.
A good value standard black and white film. I was really happy with the results from my first roll shot at box speed. I'm looking forward to trying it pushed. The results are grainy bit not excessively so.
For the price you can't complain about this lovely film. It produces very soft tones with a lot of grain, a classic black and white look. It is very tolerent of exposure variations too. Don't use it if you want very fine grain and detail but if you just want a good all rounder for a few hours fun you can't go wrong. One thing it doesnt like is high contrast ( see my image of the girl under the tree ). I would recommend using this film in flat light or shade.
Excellent film for the price.
Good push/pull capabilities so this can substitute for Foma's 100 or 400 films if you can't find them elsewhere for sale.
Nice, smooth grain and fairly sharp photos
Can change contrast easily depending on developer/agitation methods
