    If you're asking me, I expose at 400.

    Yes. It's been a long time since I used it and your results are what I am after. Thanks.

    Hey Thomas, would you say the films are comparable to Acros or Neopan in Pyro? I am almost out of my 400 speed 120 film and need a solid replacement.
    No. They are not similar, especially with regard to highlight contrast. Nothing is quite like Neo 400, but I would look to Tri-X first and work out a solid technique with it.

    I actually expose it at 160. Not only is it more like an ISO 200 film, but replenished Xtol loses about 1/2 stop compared to Xtol 1+1, so 160 gives me adequate shadow detail for normal contrast. In high contrast I expose it at 100, and low contrast at 320-400, and then I obviously adjust developing time accordingly, so that I can fit the negatives to the paper I use.

    Thanks Thomas, although the pictures you've made with Foma films is quite inspiring.
