Foma 100 Classic Reviews

Fomapan 100 Classic Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic Looks & Affordably Priced Used this for the first time for art photography, and processed myself in Kodak and Ilford chemistry. Has beautiful tonality and classic grain structure. This film is on a thinner base than some (120 roll film - a bluish polyester base 0.1 mm thick), and is subject to a bit of curling. Advice is to hang dry with weighted clips, and allow to dry slowly. Store pressed flat when dry. I would definitely recommend trying this film for its great looks and affordable price....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Film! - I use Fomapan 100 primarily for landscape/nature work. But when I do use it for portraiture, it also produces high quality results. - For the price Fomapan is a great film. It is very forgiving, and produces beautiful tones. - The only negative I can think of regarding this film would be the thinness of the emulsion. If not handled with care when processing and/or printing, this film can scratch very easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tone, wide latitude film Foma 100 has nice latitude and good tone. The film is blue - and somewhere along your development blue dye will come out. In D-76 it seems to go into the developer, when I used stock Xtol it came out in the stop bath. And the developed film remains bluer than others- which is not a fault, just different. Foma's backing paper is nice and thick with easy to see numbering. The paper makes it a good choice for re-spooling onto 620 spindles as well. The price-performance of Foma 100 is outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, rich, silvery tones The first roll I shot of this film -- in 35 mm -- I was blown away. Rich deep blacks, sparkling highlights, luscious, silvery greys. Delivers good, punchy contrast. I found the same basically in the 120 format version. It is not quite as fine grain or sharp as Kodak TMax or Ilford Delta, but it is very good and the difference probably won't be an issue for all but the most critical uses. I agree with the reviewer who commented that it seems to scratch easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good for portraiture This review is based on the blue polyester base version of the film, I understand that the film is now no longer blue, so things might have changed. I general, I really like this film. The contrast and tonal response, gives a really nice, vintage result. I find it very nice for portraits/artsy or vintage model stuff, because the film is more sensitive to blue than ie. Ilford Delta 100, my impression is that the reds are darker with this film. Also, it's not the highest resolving film around, making it quite portrait friendly. The resulting contrast (especially from Rodinal 1:50) really gives this film it's own style, which I really love. The 120 (blue)version I tried (and I tried around 15 rolls) often had issues with scratches and pinholes in the emulsion. I'm not the only person experience scratched Foma 100 (google it) and with the blue-based version, the issues have been there for as long as the film has been here it seems. (35mm and LF may be better). It always seemed to be some light-leaks on the film-borders as well, though this rarely touched the film-frame itself. Maybe the clear-based version has better quality control, however, I give the film 3.5 (4) stars for it's tonality and contrast, deducting a few points for the lack of quality control. (if you scan, that stuff is easily fixed).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality by Tian, photographer I bought 10 rolls of this film from B&H. This is my first time to use this brand name film. It is very poor quality of emulsion that I never see before. Please look at the attachment what is looked like. Not only one, but many are same.
