The Fomapan series, offered in 100, 200 and 400 speed, is Foma's most popular series of film. As panchromatic films they are reponsive to the entire visible light range. The 200 speed film retains details in the image almost as well as the Foma 100 classic while also offering a pleasing tonality with medium levels of contrast. Considering the low cost of the film there is nothing to not recommend it.
FOMA BOHEMIA is a traditional manufacturer of photo materials located in the Czech Republic. The company was founded in 1921 in the city of Hradec Králové, about 120km east of Praha . During the years of communism in Eastern Europe Foma was turned into a state-owned company  and started to produce color film and X-ray films. While the production of X-ray film for medicine and industry continues, the photography products are today exclusively black and white. Foma has a reputation of not reaching the technical standards of their big competitors Kodak, Ilford and Fuji. Instead they offer an affordable alternative for photographers that value creativity over technical perfection. With that, they are especially popular in lomography and other experimental fields of analog photography. They are also a popular choice for large format photography.
