    I'd stay happy if I still can buy Fomapan 400 in the coming 10-15 years!!

    I joined and did my +1 for the IR.

    I see the reasons for the 25, I just don't personally need it.

    I don't see the rationale for the 1600 with Delta 3200 available and so awesome. What's the point behind that one?

    Thanks Roger. Appreciate your contribution.
    And of course, the contribution of everyone.

    The 1600 one was put to stimulate Foma and rethink about their 800. If they see people asking for a 1600, they could think about reissuing the 800 (with no engineering effort involved, maybe).

    The weather in the UK tends to be quite dull much of the time, so I personally have no need of 25 ISO films. So I don't think it would be very honest of me to sign a petition asking for something I would never buy. Now, if they were to re-introduce the 800 ISO film, I would be interested, but I wouldn't be buying much. And the lack of sales was, I believe, why they took it off the market even though it was a well thought of film.

    That is a stupid Flickr group. They only allow themselves to post and only allow their own personal choices to be "up for petition".

    If anyone posts a comment or a request for a different format or a different film their posts and threads get deleted.

    Only a message of "+1" is permitted.

    It's quite narrow minded and a huge waste of time.

    Just curious, are you always handheld? I shoot all speeds of film but when I want the characteristics of the slower films I generally use a tripod.

    Great idea! More film is better! I especially like the idea of a Fomapan 1600 (I guess only in 135 and 120; hopefully bulk too). Delta/Tmax 3200 is too expensive. Gotta love fast film!

    Noone is forcing you to vote. All is requested is to vote respecting the rules. I don't see this as being stupid or narrow minded. Maybe you're just not used to it.
