    The reason for doing some personal tests is to tame the contrast, Foma films are far more responsive to changes in development times/temperatures, I shoot the 100 & 200 at half the box speed and my development times are about 70% those of other films. I did simple Zone system tests but these just confirmed others findings.

    Once you've established your personal EI and dev time for Normal lighting conditions these films behave as well as any others. If you don't test for yourself you'll struggle with contrast.

    I like HC-110 in dilution H (1+63) for Fomapan. It gives me the tonality and sharpness that I like.

    In Ilfosol-3 I got flat, lifeless negatives with too much grain and splotchy skies.

    I haven't tried the 200 yet but I want to. I have heard it has the best tonality. I am not a super contrasty guy, I like smooth tones.

    Do you know this website? http://filmdev.org/
    You can see the results for several film types, developers and the combination of both.
    Always nice to see what others were capable of with a certain combination: could help you choose.

    For instance:
    - Fomapan 100, see: http://filmdev.org/recipe/search?search=fomapan+100 (139 hits)

    - Fomapan 200, see: http://filmdev.org/recipe/search?search=fomapan+200 (79 hits)

    - Fomapan 400, see: http://filmdev.org/recipe/search?search=fomapan+400 (118 hits)

    @Ian: May I know the details of quick testing? I have a film(Fomapan 400 bulk roll) + Incident/Reflective meter + Developer(Rodinal 1+50 and Tanol from Moersch) + Adox vario classic paper.

    I do not have any device to measure the densities or have any interest to send it to prof., testing services, if available.

    How do I establish the personal E.I.?
    OM-1n: Do I need to own a Leica?
    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    I recently instaled Silverfast 8 as my scanner software for scanning negatives. Silverfast has an option for a densitometer, see:

    I haven't used it yet, but maybe it is a good option for you?

    I'll try and find my notes, most here in the UK don't use densitometers etc but do a practical series of tests, this is similar.
