    Indeed, Fomapan 100: A week ago I was shooting http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kehlsteinhaus on top of the mountain. Light was sunny 16 and with K2 I was shooting 1/250 @f/8, developed with Rodinal 1+50 for 15 mins with 3 inversions @ every 5th minute. I can print without a filter on a VC paper + dodging.
    OM-1n: Do I need to own a Leica?
    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    The EI50 rating of Fomapan only refers to the cut sheet film (4x5", 8x10" etc..). I have found that the roll version of this film is very sensitive to over exposure. Try exposing at box speed (ISO100), and cutting back agitation at the same time increasing dev time. I agitate for the first 30 seconds and only one inversion per minute. Dev time at 1+49 dilution @20degC would be 10.75 minutes (10'45"). This works VERY well for me. Much better grain structure than heavy agitation.

    Good Luck,
    Chris Maness

    There is a correction in my previous post. I will go with Thomas regarding the shadow details since my agitation scheme is based on

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum216/...-negative.html

    ...but, I was shooting at box speed with correction factor for K2(Yellow Filter) applied. So the EI was @50.
