Foma Fortepan (35mm, 100 iso) user-review

3

Such a cool and affordable B/W film available in the market. Has an odd grain and smooth tonal shades and it´s perfect for Lomography especially when it´s outdated.

A very really affordable if you buy by the bulk of 100 feet can. You can get 19 rolls with 36 frames, also nice to have it developed at home with your favorite chemical (Kodak, Ilford, etc.).

The odd grain and soft contrast (when outdated) you get with this film creates a somewhat vintage feel in to your images if you use it with any of your Lomographic cameras! or in this case, my LC-A.

On 100 ISO, it´s nothing more than perfect to match the LC-A’s abilities. We all know how much talent its Minitar lens has when paired up with this kind of black and white film.

This is really my favourite film to use whenever I do black and white experiments. Simply fantastic!
