FPP is short-hand for the Film Photography Project: a US-based collection of projects headed up by the charismatic Mike Raso. They are most famous within the global film community for their podcast (entering it's 10th year in existence) as well as the associated School Camera Donation Program whereby donations are sought and sorted to bring analogue photography back into high schools and colleges all over the country. Not only that but Mike also runs the FPP store which sells a multitude of analogue film products all over the US and hand-rolls a fantastic selection of unique films. We are honoured to bring some of those films to the European market and hope you enjoy shooting them as much as Mike has making them!

Spent years developing BW and being terrified of C41, but it's really not that bad at all! The FPP kit comes with clear step by step instructions, chemicals are easy to mix and easy to use, and seem to produce great results. Lots of online reading has made me paranoid about the chemicals going bad after even a short time, but after 3-4 weeks in bottles the results we pretty much identical to freshly mixed.
I’ve been waiting to replenish my stock and now it’s available again. I get as good results with this as any other C41 kit. As powder, the shipping is much cheaper than the liquid kits. My current batch is 9 months old, done 18 films and still working well - stored in fridge with air displaced. Really easy to use as a 3 step process.
I'm on my 2nd kit now and there are very few comparable options if you want to take shots on a Sunday and have images on Monday morning. Well, not in my neck of the woods.
Results got a wee bit muddy towards the end of it's life span on the 1st kit, but that was (I suspect) because I took several month to get through 6 colour 35mm films and 2 120s.
Example shot using Kodak ColorPlus @200 in a Nikon f5 with a Nikon 85mm f/1.8d, scanned on an Epson v550 using SilverFast software.
Simple and effective! As a newbie home-developer I was nervous to develop my first photos, but the instructions are straight-forward and easy to navigate. Chemicals are lasting well; already 10 develops in and the quality is still brilliant. :)
Can't complain in the slightest, im not new to developing films however its been a good 15years since I've been in a dark room but I can say this kit is very straightforward. The instructions are clear and easy to follow plus with a decent developing kit you can have a painless home developing system. Highly recommend.
