    Developing Foma 400

    Hello,
    Has anybody suggestions on developing time for Foma 400 rated 320, using Rodinal/R09 or Xtol? I have looked on www.digitaltruth.com and a couple of google searches but to no avail - unless I missed it completely.... Wondering if any of you has done it.... also with other developers.
    Many thanks for the help.

    You can look at our website: http://www.FotohuisRoVo.nl
    the NL-version --> assortiment --> foma (filmrolletjes) *ontwikkeltijden* (developing times)

    We certainly can NOT recommend Rodinal/R09 for this film.

    AM74 (Rollei high speed) on iso 320 OK.
    Xtol on iso 320 is also OK.

    Best regards,

    Robert

    Taken from the Foma Dada sheet:

    Xtol 7-8 mins at 20░C
    Microphen 7-9

    In my opinion Foma 400 is on the slow side like 250 ASA

    Colour? We can always use an airbrush later...

    Take a look at this thread, started by Sandy King.

    It compares Fortepan 400 with J and C Classic 400 developed in Pyrocat-HD. J and C Classic 400 developed in Pyrocat-HD is one of my favorite combinations.

    I stuck my foot in my mouth and confused Fortepan with Foma. They are different films with different characteristics.

    To quote John of J and C:

    "Fortepan 400 is the same film as our Classic 400 and is not the same as Foma 400. Foma 400 comes on a gray base and is really a 200 or so speed film. The thread you quoted was not about Foma 400."

    May I ask why. I have some rolls I bought in Czeck Republic and I like Rodinal so much. Why will Rodinal not work here?

    Fomapan 400 is a great film. I expose it at 320 ISO and process the film in Rodinal 1+50 for 13 minutes (20C) or in D-76 1+1 for 8.5 minutes (20C). The D-76 combo is my favourite because of the fine grain.
    Attached is a scanned negative of fpan 400 developed in Rodinal.

    The combination Fomapan 400 and Rodinal gives a quite big grain (clear visable on 35mm format) and the effective E.I. with this developer is rather low.

    best regards,

    Ok, thanks for the answer. I like big grain and will try to develop a roll try see if I like the result. I normally do Tri-X with Rodinal (metered @ 800 or 1600) for nice grain.
