Foma 400 Action reviews

Fomapan 400 Action Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice old fashioned look Foma 400 I think of as giving an old fashioned high speed film look. That's a good thing! I would rate the film as barely ISO 400, it really is happier a exposed a bit more, and does not do well when pushed. Or rather, one gets a high contrast and grainy look, which again, depending on what you are looking for, may be just the right thing. Overall, this is an interesting film at an excellent price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great film for specific look If you are looking for that grunge grain then this is the film for you. I do a lot of landscapes and the results on the sky really emphasizes this point. I use it as a change of pace film from Tri-x or when I know that I really want that grainy look One annoyance for me is that the plastic film canisters that the actual film comes in are very hard to open. May not be a huge problem in general, but when its sub zero temps outside I don't want those canisters around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from will be buying more and more I used this film outside on a sunny day in a k1000 and a x370 both manual, When I printed the pictures I was suprised, I though that such a low prices b/w film would be grainy but no it is honestly some of the best film that has run through these cameras.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Foma Good for overall shooting Used for portraits, landscapes and still lifes. Consistant and scratch resistent. No flaws for type of shooting I do.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It wasn't to bad... I took photos in a small room with only 2 desk lamps for a portrait, it came out well but nothing really stood out about the film. I did like that it had a little different color to the film, almost a tint of brown. There were times when the film would scratch easy, it I had to be very careful

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fomapan 400 b/w Not really terrible, it tracked weirdly in the camera and ripped easily, but the exposures look good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorites! Nice tonality and it dries super flat for easy of printing/scanning. This stock is being discontinued but I've heard Arista EDU 400 is the same stock.. Phew!
