    Agreed.
    I remmeber in the 80s kodak used to send samples of their papers and films.
    The prints were usually gorgeous and we were never able to reproduce the tonal range, etc.....

    EFKE 100 is an excellent film, so should be FOMA. Just use them and decide for yourself

    I'd really like to know how anyone can determine the qualities of a film from a web posted digital scan of either the print or negative. Between monitors, scanners editing software etc the number of variables are endless. The one thing that is certain is that the picture you see on your screen is not going to look the same on mine. I can understand looking at posted pictures from a artistic point of view. Trying to distinguish any significant technical detail about how the film itself looks is a waste of time.

    Not knowing anything about how the film was exposed, developed and printed further makes this type of analysis useless. For all anyone knows the film was lousy, developed poorly and then saved in photoshop. Or perhaps the film was excellent and the photoshop stage manipulation made it look worse.

    @ Donald: Do you use more Fomapan film: Fomapan T200 and Fomapan 400 and do you have also Diafine data available for that films?

    Best regards,

    Robert

    Fomapan 100 in sheets is the only Foma film I've used. I have used it with Diafine as well as HC-110 and (once) Caffenol; in Diafne I find it gives a very satisfactory EI 160, or a slightly tenuous EI 200, still with very fine grain and good sharpness. The Creative 200 (formerly T200) is said to be a tabular- or epitaxial-grain film, and as such likely gains much less from Diafine; the 400 is completely conventional and will likely give EI 800, give or take 1/3 stop.
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.
