Forte Fortepan (120, 400 iso) staff-review

This little treat is super in artificial light as it boasts extended light sensitivity in the red part of the spectrum. Additionally, the Fortepan 400 has a surprisingly lengthy tonal range even when light is scarce.

At 400 ASA, gloomy days won’t stop you in shooting black and white and being the cheapest in the market, this one will not leave you in the dark. A roll of Fortepan promises excellent contrast on your photographs and almost unnoticeable grain, very much like other expensive B&W film brands. But what’s to love this even more? Its paper backing is quite clumsy, so light leaks and distortions are apparent. I’m quite sure that both the Diana+ and Holga’s hearts will be beating faster when they knew about this!
