Foma Fomapan (120, 200 iso) User-Review

Ideal solution for crazy photographers who can't stop to make pictures and would locked themselves inside the laboratory with chemicals for film development!

General information about film
FOMAPAN 200 Creative is a panchromatically sensitized, black-and-white negative film. The film meets high requirements for low granularity, high resolving power and contour sharpness. FOMAPAN 200 Creative has a nominal speed rating of ISO 200, but due to its wide exposure latitude the film gives good results even when overexposed by 1 EV (exposure value) (as ISO 100) or underexposed by 2 EV (as ISO 800) without any change in processing, i.e. without lengthening the development time or increasing the temperature of the developer used. Process in standard B&W chemicals. Manufactured in Czech Republic.

My personal experience
I always wanted to develop my b&w film at home, but unfortunately I have not yet found a teacher who can help and teach me. Black and White photography is a bit expensive for me, because I very much like taking pictures and it’s stressing my budget a bit. What I love about this Fomapan film is that, it is inexpensive and gives good results! I love the vintage effect it has on my shots – gray and grainy. I used this film with a very bright sun on the sea, though – so it’s a bit overexposed. I would recommend this film on a slightly overcast kind of weather.

    so interesting about the 100 and 800 ISO notes. how come there is no need to change the development process?

    I made my first BW Diana shoots with Fomapan and I love it from the first moment I saw results! And as a Czech, I am sooo proud of it:) (of course:)
