    Fomapan 100(135) came good with Rodinal 1+50(300ml + 6ml) but the agitation was according to the article.

    15 mins: Three inversions at the beginning and three at every 5th minute @20° C and this prints very well on MCP 310 with Focomat Ic.

    Note: I shot mostly during day time in Italy with Yellow-Green filter and my incident reading was EV 14 @ISO 50(filter compensation).

    Unfortunaltey, I do not own any scanner yet to show some samples.

    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    How do your negatives look? I've found that Fomapan 100 and Rodinal 1+50 gives me negatives that I just know will print well.

    If I compare with APX 100, Fomapan 100 is slightly contrasty when developed for 15 mins and I personally like it for its grain. My printing size is up to 8x10 inches.

    about 70-75% shorter developer times
    Is it just me or does that sound like you are suggesting developing times that are 70-75% of normal. Such as, instead of 10 minutes use 2.5 to 3 minutes.

    I think he meant 25-30% shorter
    Good catch there mw, it took me a reread for it to sink in.

    Agree completely with Ian. The film isn't contrasty, it just needs adequate exposure and less development than many other films.

    Ian is correct. I shoot Fomapan 100 at 50. I develop in Rodinal 1+50 for 8 mins and I get good negatives from it. They have good shadow detail and good highlight detail.

    Instead of starting a new thread i`m going to tag a few questions onto this one.
    I am about to try some foma 100, so this thread has been helpful.
    What is the 200 like? I see that some strongly suggest shooting this film at 50.Does the same apply for the 200, half the speed also?
    Also I have been using microphen exclusively, any reason why I should change if I decide to use a lot of this film, i am considering buying bulk rolls if all goes well.
    Which leads to next question.
    Re - loadable cassettes, how many times can i expect to use each cassette before light leaks become a problem.
    I have seen some new stock kood plastic cassettes. Some say plastic, some say metal, but surely new ones would be the best option.
    regards

    Yes, the 200 works best (in my experience) at about 100 or 125.
