I was recently gifted some rolls of film and one of them was Fomapan 400 black and white. This was my first time shooting with Fomapan 400 and I was excited to see how the film would perform and what kind of results I would get. I loaded the film into my Holga 120N camera and set out to take some photos around town.

After returning home I developed the film in HC-110 (dilution B) and waited patiently for it to dry. The next morning I scanned the negatives and the first thing I noticed was that the film seemed to handle light and contrast remarkably well. The images I captured had deep blacks and bright whites with plenty of detail in between.

Another thing I noticed about the Fomapan 400 is that it has a bit of a grainy texture to it, which I found to be quite nice. The grain adds a certain character to the images that I find appealing.

The Fomapan 400 also seemed to work extremely well in low-light situations. The images had a nice softness to them, with a subtle grain that added to the moodiness of the shots.

Overall, I was impressed with the Fomapan 400 film. It performed well with my Holga 120N camera and gave me some great images. I would use it again and recommend it to anyone looking for a high-quality, versatile black-and-white film. One thing to keep in mind is that Fomapan 400 is a relatively fast film, so it may not be the best choice for shooting in bright daylight unless you have an appropriate filter. Additionally, as with any film, the results can vary depending on the camera and shooting conditions, so it’s always a good idea to experiment and see what works best for you.

In conclusion, if you’re looking for a great black-and-white film to use with your Holga 120N camera or any other camera, give Fomapan 400 a try. You may be pleasantly surprised by the results!
