    Welp, I have just decided to try something other than Adox/Agfa papers. Guess I know who's paper I'm gong to try first.

    Thanks for the support Foma!!

    I have yet to try any Foma products. But if they are willing to support APUG by becoming a Partner, then maybe it's time I give them a go.

    Fomapan in Canada

    Anyplace in Canada I can buy/order Fomapan products? I know I can order from Freestyle or Fotoimpex if I don't mind shipping and duty charges.

    Thanks, Foma. I was ordering 200T from Fotoimpex before it was imported into the US--an interesting film with a unique look.

    Welcome Foma!

    Foma is indeed a great brand which still produces with love and knowledge rare items as double-8mm invertible cine films. Also, their warmtone papers are OUTSTANDING!

    Sean, if possible, it would be great to have one of their men on board, as much as Ilford does. I am strongly persuaded that in these times having a direct contact with evoluted amateurs is a must for photographic industries, but many of their CEOs seem not to understand it.

    Thanks for the good news, however.

    I believe Foma and Fomafoto are two different entities. But I will ask Fomafoto to comment on that and see if they can bring in a company rep when required. Thanks

    Ah, yes, it's probably the business of Slavomir Polivka, who already is on the board. Sorry, my fault.

    That is correct. Fomafoto is a Norvegian distributor dedicated to Foma´s products.

    Is Fomafoto a good place for USA-based photographers to obtain Foma products, or is this mainly a/an European entity?

    One note - on the sponsors page the "Direct Links to our Partners, click the logos:" doesn't work for Fomafoto.
