    Has anyone had any experience with forte 200 iso Black and White 4x5 film?

    I would normally use Agfa Apx 100 but this is hard to get from my local supplier here in Adelaide.

    Using Forte 200

    I am currently using it as my main 4x5 film. (Bought from Arista as .EDU film)

    Very nice film, good tonality. I tend to dev it in Diafine. One thing though, it does need a pre soak in my jobo tank, else it comes out with splotches.

    I would s'pect so since it hasn't been made in a couple of years. I have a couple years supply but when that's gone, it'll probably be FP4 for me (if that is still around).
