I'm curious because I had a terrible time with this film.
Both the Fonapan 100 & 200 are films that need taming, it's essential to do your own EI and dev time testing to get the best from these films. They need somewhere between 2/3 to 3/4 the dev times of other films or they become very contrasty.

I use the 200 @ 100 EI and process in Pyrocat HD 1+1+100 @ 20C for 10 to 11 mins compared to 15-16 mins for all other films. I've also used Xtol again with a similar EI and cut in dev time. The negatives are then very easy to print with good tones, excellent sharpness and fine grained. I use both the 100 & 200 in 120 and LF sizes.
