    Really lovely work shown here! Can't wait to start mine up with FOMA.

    Part of my stash of 9x12cm FOMA film I ordered from Germany. 300 sheets of FOMA 100 and 300 sheets of FOMA 200.

    Enough to do some serious work with my three Plaubel Makiflexes.

    Sounds like an impressive haul! I'm sure you'll get great shots with the film. In case you are outside Europe, there's an alternative to Germany for future purchases. It's lens www.fomafoto.com They have great prices and very reasonable shipping. From the EU it does not make sense as the hit we take on import charges and custom fees exceeds the price difference with two of the large German vendors. Outside Europe, they are great.

    I'm using 200 in 5x7 and 400 in 8x10 at the moment. My biggest complaint so far has been that the films come in two part boxes rather three part like the photo gods intended. Since I'm contact printing both of those, there's probably not a good reason for me to pick one and stick with it.

    Nice, never really saw this look in Foma. OA is a hypercat, correct?

    The boxes are a bit of a let-down indeed, however, given the price, who is complaining? In all fairness, the boxes feel flimsy and are prone to just "pop open" if you do not take care. I sort this by putting a piece of tape on the box after I close it. Easy to cut with a finger nail prior to next use and it prevents mishaps. At any rate, I have never had a fogging issue with foma boxes, so I guess they do the trick. The film (particularly 100) is also extremely prone to damage to the emulsion side. Even when dry, it seems that the emulsion gets damaged by just thinking about it. I generally use foma for casual shooting and if I do line up for a photograph that might be a "money shot", I just make two exposures to be sure. More often than not, I pull two perfect shots from the drum, sometimes one is botched. Anyway, I know a lot of people who do the same when shooting other film, even expensive stuff like velvia, acros, etc.

    Anyway, the contact prints sound nice, happy to have a few scans on here if possible!

    Arista EDU 200, Rodinal 1+50. Probably shot at box speed.

    I have a whole box plus a few of 100 that I'm taking to the Taos area in August, in hopes of some nice landscapes. Nothing remotely like that here in College Station TX.

    Yes. It is a compensating developer too.

    A picture I took yesterday. Fomapan 100 with it's distinct look. Developed in Rodinal for 8:00 @ 20C. As usual, I used my rotary drum.
