    New Fomapan Creative 200 (T200) production

    From the factory:

    I would like to inform you that the last coating of Fomapan 200 was succesful.
    It is possible to order for next month the Fomapan 200 as perforated film and rollfilm.
    I hope that you and your clients will be satisfied with the quality of this film again!!
    So good news for Fomapan Creative 200 users!

    Best regards,

    Robert

    Great news I've been using Foma as my back up film and have been very pleased with the images made on the Creative 200 emulsion. Presumably the sheet film sizes will be available later.

    Even in 35mm the film is great. Only not iso 200 but a bit slower speed.



    Fomapan T200 in R09. M7+Elmarit 2,8/28mm + Y filter.



    Fomapan T200 in R09. M7+Elmarit 2,8/28mm + Y filter.

    And the film reacts very good on Para-/Ortho Phenylene Diamine Ultra Fine Grain developers too.



    Fomapan T200 in Windisch W665. E.I. 100. M7+Summarit 2,0/50mm.

    Xtol is also nice: 1+1 E.I. 160.

    Can someone summarise why the Creative 200 is popular or revered compared to the 100 and 400?

    I just looked at the datasheet... the 35mm/120 is panchromatic... while the sheet is extended red. Would have liked an extended red film that doesn't cost a fortune to find its way to Australia.

    edit: oops looked like 630nm to me, but it appears to drop off aroudn 660nm, while the sheet film drops off after 700nm.

    A few odd looking development curves too in the data sheet.

    I use both the 100 & 200 emulsions they need a little taming, as Robert says drop the speed, they also build up contrast quickly so need about 2/3rds the development of other films.

    Not sure that the 200 is any better or should be more revered it's just an excellent film, I'm just about to print some Fomapan 200 negs in a few minutes. (Just stopped for a British cup of tea ).

    Blanc & Negro sell Foma in Australia I believe.

    The film (T200) is special due to the cubical and hexagonal halogenide crystals. But talking in selling amounts, Fomapan 100 is their best selling film if I can extend the statistics from my Fotohuis.



    ...... and very nice in architecture classical vintage photos.



    Prague in Winter. Fomapan T200 E.I. 160 in R09. M7+Elmarit 2,8/28mm + Y filter.

    They do, and so do other sources or importing cheaply too. I mean any extended red film I've found carries a high price, or massive shipping cost.
