    Wephota film

    Hi, I have recently purchased a Graflex SLR for 3.25 x 4.25 sheet film. My search to find a source of film this size lead me to Germany to a company called Lumiere shop. I purchased a box of their Wephota 3.25 x 4.25 sheet film for 55 dollars shipped to my door. My question for you is this: Does anyone have any experience with the Wephota film NP22? I have read somewhere that it is rebranded Foma 100 is it true? When it comes to developing I used to run Foma 100 in Rodinal 8 minutes would this be the same for Wephota? Now I am wating to see what I will get.

    Wephota is not just a brand but it stands for one of Germany's film converters. They are specialized on converting sheet film to all kind of formats. You can order from them directly.

    Here is their pricelist:

    You really have to check prices. Their advantage however is their range of sizes. They have not got a web-shop. You have to try to communicate with them directly.

    Thnx SilverX. I appreciate your help, but I still don't know the developing times for their NP22 ISO 100 film.

    They do not publish datasheets, in general they are quite enigmatic about their films. I do not understand why.

    Here at Apug you'll find some posts on the matter of the origin of their films.

    Thanks ATH. I did a search myself and I was looking for something in Rodinal as this is the developer I am using. So fun little luck. If the Wephota is in fact a Foma 100 than it would be about 8 minutes in Rodinal, but how to know if it really is?

    Hi krisb1981,
    Did you find the developing times yet?
    I found this: http://www.digitaltruth.com/devchart...er=&mdc=Search
    It was suggested that this is for Wephoto in this discussion:
    http://photo.net/black-and-white-pho...g-forum/00b4nz

    I was searching myself for dev times, since I'm thinking of getting me some of their film sheets in 18x24 cm size
    for my olf Russian FKD camera.

    There isn't much available in this size. Got me some Maco Genius sheet film cheap though.
