    Foma 200 - what do you rate it at?

    Greetings,

    Just a simple question - What EI do people rate Foma 200 at?

    I have shot 2 rolls of it recently and have come up with quite thin negatives. I have been rating it at around EI 150 and developing in both D76 1:1 for 10 minutes (agitate 10 secs every minute) and Rodinal 1:50 for 10 minutes also (agitate first minute and then 2 slow agitations every minute).

    In the past, I shot the Old Foma (which was on a different base) and was very fond of it. Back then, I was souping in Rodinal 1:50 for 10 minutes.

    Cheers

    In pryo-HD and 510 pyro I rate both the 35mm and 120 at 125. the film has really grown on me and I've come to really like the tonality it gives, especially in a tanning or staining developer. Also good in XTOL replenished at 125 or 160 depending on the light

    100 ISO in Rodinal 1+50, agitate first 30 secs & 10 secs every minute. 4 inversions in 10 seconds.

    Michael, what is your total dev time? 10 Minutes? Would this also be applicable for 120 and 4x5?

    I rate it at 100 EI and develop for about 75% of the time for my other films, I get great results with it.

    9.5 mins, this was 4x5 processing one sheet at a time in a Paterson tank. Haven't used it in 35mm or 120.

    OK, thanks. I'll think I'll do some bracketing next time @ 100 and 120 and go for my 10 minute time frame.

    I have been trying out Fomapan 200 recently, as a change from my usual Fomapan 400, and quite like it, I rate it at 200, and develop it in both D76 stock, for 8 minutes, agitate for first 30 seconds then 10 seconds every minute, and for between 11 and 14 minutes in Rodinal 1/50, depending on the light/subject, but mainly 11 minutes, agitate for first minute and 5 seconds every 30 seconds, and am getting great results,

    The variety of answers just goes to show how variable people and their cameras and methods are.
    I used to rate it at 160 because I "read it on the internet" but I discovered I get by far my best results rating it at 100 (which I established by forgetting I had Foma in the camera and thinking it was Acros)
