    Comments about Fomapan 400 Action Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll):

    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 400 Action Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll):

    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.
