Fomapan 400 35mm Film 36 Exposures

Fomapan 400 35mm Film, sometimes referred to as Action, is a panchromatic, black-and-white negative film. Due to it’s speed it is great for taking photographs under unfavourable light conditions or using short exposure times.

This Fomapan Film has a low granularity, meaning it has a fine grain. It also has a high resolving power. Add to that contour sharpness and a wide range of halftones.

We put a roll of 35mm through our Contax G2 rated at 400, then processed it in Tetenal Paranol S. You can see the results here.

Fomapan 100 has a speed rating of ISO 400/27°. Noteworthy however, is the film’s wide exposure latitude. Due to this, the film gives good results even when overexposed by 1 stop (as ISO 200/24°) or underexposed by 2 stops (as ISO 1600/33°). If you do alter the speed, Foma suggests that there is no need to alter processing times. We recommend doing some tests if you’re pushing or pulling the film.

We put a roll of 35mm through our Contax G2 rated at 400, then processed it in Tetenal Paranol S. You can see the results here.

Overall, this is an good, affordable, fine grain, high speed film that can be used under a wide range of lighting situations.

1 review for Fomapan 400 35mm Film 36 Exposures

  1. Parallax Photographic Coop

    A good budget option when it comes to black and white. We like the results we got. The negatives have nice contrast and visible, but not excessive, grain. Considering the cost, we think it stands up well next to Ilford HP5 and Kodak Tri-X.
