    Status of Fomapan 200

    Statement from MACO:
    "Now I have a new information and decision of the management to the Fomapan 200:
    Our supplier of a raw material which is necessary for the production the Fomapan 200
    emulsion finished production.
    Foma after very intensive negotiations and testing, unfortunately, could not replace this
    element so that we can´t supply Fomapan 200 in high quality as is required.
    This is the reason why we are forced to close production Fomapan 200 at present.
    We regret it very much, but we have to cancel all orders of Fomapan 200 from our clients,
    because we are not able to provide this product currently.
    Thank you for your understanding."


    Its a great loss for me, I loved this film. Time is hard...

    They are old fashion films, but I love them.
    Foma 100, I expose it @ 64 and in rodinal it's exceptional. The closer film to APX 100
    Foma 400, a very old style 400 ISO film, whicih I love too... look at the combo rolleiflex/ foma 400/ xtol

    I can see you've achieved subtle tonality and gradation in the image that very much works for the subject. From looking at the skin tone, I take it XTOL & Fomapan 400 are a relatively low contrast option at the development time chosen?

    Did you use much APX 100 when it was available?

    It was not the one I used the more... And when it was available, I shot mostly in 135... When I got inside the world of Medium format, agfa stopped it in 120 .
    Stille have some, I could compare if you want.

    I think that's old news, and the relevant line for optimism is “we are forced to close production Fomapan 200 at present.”


    That's very different to saying it's discontinued completely.

    Ive got a box of Arista EDU Ultra 100 in 4x5, never really liked it at all. Might give it another go before getting some Shanghai in 4x5
