Foma Retropan 320 Soft overview

  • 1Description

Foma RETROPAN 320 soft is a panchromatic black and white negative film characterized by its fine grain structure along with good resolution and edge sharpness. Offering a wide tonal range and classic appearance, this film is particularly well-suited for conventional enlarging applications, and its softer, mild contrast values are ideal for still lives, architectural, landscape, and portrait photography. Its nominal sensitivity is ISO 320/26° when processed in standard black and white chemistry or the recommended Retro Special Developer, however its wide exposure latitude permits rating the film at one stop of over (EI 160) or two stops under (EI 1250) with good results.

This item is one 36-exposure roll of 35mm film.

Foma Retropan 320 Soft reviews

RETROPAN 320 soft Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for a certain stylized look I shot two rolls of this while in China over the summer. I had seen a few reviews of this online saying things like, looks like it would be good for street photos and it's pretty grainy. This is the same conclusions I came to. It has an interesting old-fashioned look that gives it an instant recognizable style for certain things. I can see how this would be well-suited to street photos of people and such where it's not so much for precision, but for getting a good vibe that suits the subject. Overall, contrast seems low and the grain is quite noticeable. I processed these rolls using stand development for an hour with a 1:100 dilution of Rollei R09 Rodinal. I chose this method because there was no processing info available for any developer other than Foma's Retro developer, which I wasn't about to go search out (in China) just to develop these two rolls, so I figured stand developing would be the safe choice. I don't know if grain would be any less noticeable if I had used the Foma developer. I have yet to see a photo posted anywhere by anyone who actually used the recommended Foma developer with this film, so your guess is as good as mine whether my results were close to what they intended. The posted image is a scan from a cheap print lab in China...probably scanned with a Fuji whatever it is they've got. I haven't edited it other than to resize it. I got a consistent look from both rolls even though they were processed a few weeks apart and with different kinds of subjects. Conclusion is this is an OK film to use if you're looking for this specific kind of stylized old-fashioned low contrast look. The grain looks much worse in a scan than it would in a real print, and you can always blur it a tiny bit in Photoshop to soften the harsh scan grain. It can work well for certain kinds of things, but don't expect it to be able to do anything else other than this one look. Personally, I don't think I'll be using this again, because it's not my taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent film! I shot this in overcast weather, with the sun barley in the background, red filter and overdeveloped by one stop. This is one of my favorites now!
