Foma 100 Classic 120 Reviews

Fantastic film in the experienced hand.

One of the mostly classy films used over century shows the beauty with simple care when used. Fomapan 100 used as 50 to 80, with 20-25% developing time reduction gave me fantastic results from the recent B&H purchase. See attached photo.

A very good 120 film and can't beat the price

Recently shot it in an Argus EL TLR (circa 1949) and liked the results. My metering was far less than perfect. It's also good in 35mm.

Great film especially given competitors prices. Slight deviations in quality control in a few rolls, but nothing that impacts the photo (like film tape point variations). Will keep buying until kodak returns to more realistic prices.

Using in my 100 year old camera!

Just need some 3D printed adapters, and you can shoot any old No. 3A Kodak Junior.

This film is fine if you're digitizing it and editing it digitally. In fact I'd say it's a good bargain. However, if you're thinking of printing in the darkroom maybe just try a couple of rolls. There are occasional tiny black dots with lighter colored circles around them, almost like a grain of sand imbedded in the film itself. Otherwise I love the tone and contrast

good film, nice price, but disappointing

By Jonathan

The Fomapan 100 Classic 4x5 sheet film is beyond reproach, but I'm afraid that the corresponding roll film has disappointed me in three aspects. Zero'th, you should be aware that the antihalation coating on both sheet and roll film is a dense blue-green dye, and though I presume that it's harmless, it really is daunting to see the developer come out of the film processing looking kinda green. Just rinse four times in water and on this score, there's nothing to complain about thereafter. First, now, you have to expect that the developed film is very curly. I do my printing via scanner, and it's a pain to get the film to lie flat in the negative holder. Second, when you look at the proof prints, you may notice annoying pinholes, (black on the finished image) apparently a defect of manufacture. There is no such phenomenon with the sheet film. Third and finally, the grain is noticeable in high magnification. This *seems* worse than on the sheet film (same magnification). My recommendation: without reservation for the sheet film, but for the roll film, be warned.

It's Good

This is the same film stock as the Arista Edu Ultra. It's good, and I would recommend using it.

question

Is this the latest batch of Fomapan 100 that is packaged with a yellow stripe on the box? The earlier version has a blue tinted base and curls badly. The current version is excellent.
