            Great, repackaged, Foma 400 film. Works great in D76 1:2 or 1:3, HC110 dilution H and FA-1027 (Clayton F76+ 1:14). Has pretty good tonal separation. Don't be scared of the blue film base, it's easy to print through. I shoot this at box speed and at EI 200 depending on my needs and developer used.

                        Love this film. At first developing my film I was a little freaked because the film itself was blue and I am used to the Kodak B&W 120 film being purple but once I realized that is how it was suppose to be everything was fine. I scanned my negatives in digitally and edited them through photoshop I was very pleased with the end result!

                          I like the tones of this panochromatically sensative film. I like using it in my Lubitel or Holga due to its latitude and versatility. So far I have taken it hiking where I can use it in shade or brighter areas.
