    I can not make any comment on the Fomapan T200 sheet film due to the fact this is an exclusive product for the USA.
    In Europe normally only available on 35mm and 120 roll film.

    Indeed a very special emulsion:



    But OK, here is where you have to sent your (defective) films:

    You made a processing mistake or the film has a coating problem.


    If the films are not over their exp. date and you have an invoice of them, they are obliged to do the investigation and replace the defect film by the same amount of new 120 roll films.

    What is the batchnr. of the defective serie?

    In case you do not have the invoice anymore, you can still sent the films (before exp. date) in to Foma in Hradec Kralové together with exposed and the unexposed materials in an airpack envelope. After they can detect any failure and it's NOT a processing/user fault they will replace any film by sending back by DHL.

    Foma Bohemia S.R.O. is producing under ISO 9001 and is able to detect any failure in their Q.C. system.
    They are able to seach things out like Kodak, Ilford, Rollei or Fuji can do it.

    But if you will not take the right action to the US Foma distributor, nothing will happening.......

    I don't have any invoices, I even tossed the boxes out to save space. Will foma accept the arista.edu films as they are rebranded?

    In case you have no confidence in the direct contact with Foma our Fotohuis in the Netherlands will accept your package of about 50 120 roll films (for an exception of APUG only; Fomapan T200 / Arista T200) for an exchange after investigation and check on claim, warranty, expiration date and the right processing by you.

    You can send in your parcel by (big) air pack envelope and custom CN22 paper marked on GIFT (to prevent import duties) to:

    FWIW, I've been using bulk-loaded Fomapan 400, sold as Arisa.EDU Ultra, as my standard 400-speed film for a while. My first box was fine in PC-Glycol developer, but the second box produces pinholes such as you describe in that developer, but not in DS-10. I don't know precisely why this is happening, but presumably there was some batch-to-batch variation in the emulsion that's caused an incompatibility with PC-Glycol (using sodium carbonate solution as the activator). It's conceivable that something similar is causing your problems, but with HC-110 rather than PC-Glycol as the developer that's bringing out the problem. If you're willing to take the time, you could shoot a test roll, cut it into pieces, and develop the pieces in whatever developers you have on hand to try to find a developer that won't activate the problems.
