    Foma 400 in sheets is now available!

    I just saw at Freestyle that Foma has released their 400 speed emulsion in sheet film sizes.
    Prior to posting this I searched via both the internal search, scanning this part of the forum, and I also used Google to do a site search. I hope I am not duplicating somebody else' post, because this is exciting news.
    I'll be ordering 5x7 film right away.

    The catalog shows 5x7 and 8x10 sheets as well.

    Where do you see it in 5x7 & 8x10? And the price for 4x5 is steeper than TMY. Looks like some glitch.

    I saw 5x7 and 8x10 in their printed catalog that I received in the mail a few days back.

    It looks like it's more expensive than TMax 400, yes. Fortunately there is Arista EDU Ultra for less, which is much less expensive and the same film.

    I noticed it when I was on the site a few days ago. A suitable replacement for the Foma 200?
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Not sure, Alex. I didn't use enough of the 200 to really form an opinion. The 400 has pretty weak antihalation treatment, and that gives it a very interesting look, or a 'glow' because of halation. You may like it, or you may not. But definitely try it if you shoot sheet film.
    I've been waiting for it to happen for my 5x7.

    "The 400 has pretty weak antihalation treatment"
    for the 35mm version. The 120 has a better antihalation backing. We will have to wait to see about the sheet film.
