    Foma 400 in Xtol 1:1
    If you dry the 120 film in a humid environment it will also dry perfectly flat across length and width.

    Sanders -- I actually like 100 more so than 200 - even though I love all three speeds 100/200/400. They all dry the same (I think you use TF-4 fixer) nice and flat.

    The issue I've found with FP200 as of late is what I read about earlier in this thread -- specks and pinholes in the emulsion. The strange thing is I could go through 10 rolls and never see the issue -- but then dev a roll of 35mm and find 4 or 5 frames that have numerous specks / flecks -- but the rest of the roll is just fine. The last time it happened, I thought maybe my fix was on the long side - so I mixed up a new batch. I just dev'd a roll of 120 FP200 last night -- shot with the Pontura -- same thing happened. There was two frames with specks and pinholes -- LOTS of them -- but few, if any - on the remaining six frames.

    What's the issue? Who knows. I'm not sure if FP200 will ever re-emerge. What I do know is I love all flavors of Fomapan well enough to keep using the stuff. The only thing that really bothers me is spotting the prints! I think FP is a perfect match for the vintage camera and lenses I've been experimenting with for the last few years... but that's just me...

    Found a few more rolls that I'd forgotten about in the freezer and have been shooting them in my Perkeo II, so now I'm really down to my last roll.

    I just visited Freestyle's site and see that they
    have 35mm Foma 200 in stock, in rolls and 100-
    foot cans. Has Foma returned the 200 film to
    production? If so, does anyone know how it
    compares with the old Fomapan 200?

    No, Sanders, Nothing new. Maybe old stock.

    Aurelien, yes -- I keep meaning to print but
    my professional life has been in flux -- my firm is
    moving me to Florida and I've been preoccupied
    with finding a place to live down there. The
    good news is I think I have ... and it has a
    darkroom. :-)

    It's back

    I can confirm that Fomapan 200 is indeed being manufactured and sold again.
