    I love Fomapan 400, and I think the speeds you have found are right, if you are looking for very deep shadow detail. I shoot it at 200 to develop in HC-110, and more at 240 or 320 to develop in Xtol 1:1, my favorite for this film considering overall best speed, tone, and grain.

    Foma 400 doesn't do so well at EI 400, but it's not that bad. I'm doing OK with it at EI 250 in hard light and EI 320 in dull light. Similarly, Foma 200 does well for me at EI 160 or 125 under similar conditions. Dilute XTOL seems to work very well with this film. Both have relatively short development times and build density in the highlights quickly.

    It works well for me at 400, developed in Rodinal 1+50. Grain is not a major issue because I am shooting 120 format. I also suspect that 400 on my VC Meter is actually closer to 200.

    Fomapan 400 in AM74/RHS. Iso 320 in this slightly speed enhanced developer.

    I too shoot with Fomapan 400 regularly and rate it at 400, develop in Rodinal 1:50 for 9.5 minutes and get great results. Good tones, a little grainy, but very sharp.
