Fomapan 400 Action is a panchromatically sensitized, black-and-white negative film designed for taking photographs under unfavourable light conditions or using short exposure times.

The film meets high requirements for low granularity, good resolving power and good contour sharpness
Fomapan 400 Action has a nominal speed rating of ISO 400/27o, but due to its wide exposure latitude the film gives good results even when overexposed by 1 EV (exposure value) (as ISO 200/24 o) or underexposed by 2 EV (as ISO 1600/33o) without any change in processing, i.e. without lengthening the development time or increasing the temperature of the developer used
To make prints or enlargements, Extrabrom- and Fomaspeed-type enlarging papers are recommended; however, all sorts of black-and-white enlargement papers can be used

Speed 400

      Comments about Fomapan Classic 400 35mm Black and White Negative Film - 100':

      For over forty years I have been involved in traditional photography, one way or another. I had never heard of Foma, and Tri-X was my film of choice.
      About three years ago I began taking photography classes at the university level, therefore, began researching ways to cut expenses so, I tried Foma. The result was that of disbelief. It is almost impossible to shoot a roll of Foma and not get the results that you anticipate. It is the best film I have ever used.

      Comments about Fomapan Classic 400 35mm Black and White Negative Film - 100':

      We continue to teach traditional film photography at our school and occasionally experiment with different films, papers, and chemicals. This film produces great contrast and sharpness. The only drawback for us is that there are no numbers along the perforations of the film. Keeping a record of the negatives is a little difficult when compiling a portfolio.
