    Great film for specific look

          Comments about Fomapan 400 Action Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures):

          If you are looking for that grunge grain then this is the film for you. I do a lot of landscapes and the results on the sky really emphasizes this point. I use it as a change of pace film from Tri-x or when I know that I really want that grainy look

          One annoyance for me is that the plastic film canisters that the actual film comes in are very hard to open. May not be a huge problem in general, but when its sub zero temps outside I don't want those canisters around!

            Not really terrible, it tracked weirdly in the camera and ripped easily, but the exposures look good

              Foma 400 I think of as giving an old fashioned high speed film look. That's a good thing!

              I would rate the film as barely ISO 400, it really is happier a exposed a bit more, and does not do well when pushed. Or rather, one gets a high contrast and grainy look, which again, depending on what you are looking for, may be just the right thing.

              Overall, this is an interesting film at an excellent price.

                I used this film outside on a sunny day in a k1000 and a x370 both manual, When I printed the pictures I was suprised, I though that such a low prices b/w film would be grainy but no it is honestly some of the best film that has run through these cameras.

                  I took photos in a small room with only 2 desk lamps for a portrait, it came out well but nothing really stood out about the film. I did like that it had a little different color to the film, almost a tint of brown. There were times when the film would scratch easy, it I had to be very careful
