Foma 400 Action reviews

Fomapan 400 Action Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good film, Good price. I purchased the film to use in a 120 Holga. It was my first time experimenting with the camera so I wasn't too picky about the film. However, I felt like I made a good choice. The 400 speed produced really excellent, contrasty negatives. I didn't have any trouble reeling the film to develop it; it was actually fairly easy. One thing to note is that regardless of whether I did a wash prior to developing, the film had a light blue tint--this didn't present any problem when printing. This is a good value and I'd definitely purchase it again. I did notice a small light leak on the edge of the film, but nothing to interfere with my printing; may have just occurred during loading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my Favorite Films I really like Foma 400 (and 100 while we are at it). It has great tones and to me it just has that look like Tri-X has that look (different looks). Great film. I know of no one who is unhappy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite black and white film! The values and ranges of of black and white are amazing in this film. I can capture photos in dim light without using a flash which is really nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a fan of Foma I'm really happy with this film. It has the amount of contrast that I've been looking for. I've tried other brands and was never satisfied, then decided to give Foma a chance because I love their paper so much. This film makes for beautiful photos even on the darkest of days.
