    Thumbs up Fomapan 100, 200 and 400

    A lot of us will shoot fomapan at some stage. Some shoot it because it is cheap, others because they really like the film. I started to shoot fomapan because it was easy to come by and affordable. However, as time went by, I really liked the results I keep getting from Fomapan 100. The 200 version is a bit of a struggle at times, 400 is great. Anyway, to do the film creative justice, I reckoned a thread would be nice. When posting an image, please add information on the equipment and development.

    I like the tonality here. I keep being amazed at the latitude foma 100 is capable of... Here's a door with locks and deep shade. Wista Field DX 4x5, Fomapan 100 in APH09 @ 20C for 8:00.

    Not entirely surprising given the same film and developer, but I seem to be getting the same contrast curve. (Wista DX 4x5, Fomapan 200 in APH09 @ 20C for 8:30)

    I have since moved to develop for 9:00, but even so, I find that the negatives lack density. Something I never experienced when shooting 100 or 400. The results seem to come out ok though.

    nice shots everyone, I have never used foma, I have used the arista brand which I have read that it is pretty much the same film
    "WOW! Now thats a big camera. By the way, how many megapixels is that thing?"

    Can't speak for others, but I always shoot 100 at box speed, 200 at 160. Neither lends itself well to using in my experience.
