      Comments about Fomapan Action 400 120 Black and White Print Film:

      I really like Foma 400 (and 100 while we are at it). It has great tones and to me it just has "that look" like Tri-X has "that look" (different looks). Great film. I know of no one who is unhappy with it.

        The values and ranges of of black and white are amazing in this film. I can capture photos in dim light without using a flash which is really nice!

          Comments about Fomapan Action 400 120 Black and White Print Film:

          I purchased the film to use in a 120 Holga. It was my first time experimenting with the camera so I wasn't too picky about the film. However, I felt like I made a good choice. The 400 speed produced really excellent, contrasty negatives. I didn't have any trouble reeling the film to develop it; it was actually fairly easy. One thing to note is that regardless of whether I did a wash prior to developing, the film had a light blue tint--this didn't present any problem when printing. This is a good value and I'd definitely purchase it again. I did notice a small light leak on the edge of the film, but nothing to interfere with my printing; may have just occurred during loading.

            I'm really happy with this film. It has the amount of contrast that I've been looking for. I've tried other brands and was never satisfied, then decided to give Foma a chance because I love their paper so much. This film makes for beautiful photos even on the darkest of days.

                    Had a bit of trouble unrolling the film because the adhesive tape stuck to the paper backing. Otherwise the film worked well.
