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!

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

      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.

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

          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
