The film: Fomapan 100 boasts a "classic" style emulsion that renders deep blacks, crisp whites and beautiful grays. It is a panchromatically sensitized, black and white negative film rated at ISO 100/21. This film is characterized by high resolution, wide exposure latitude and fine grain. Great for the novice refining their skills and for the expert seeking to replicate the vintage look of yesteryear.
The chemistry: SP-76EC is a phenidone-based developer that can be used with all black and white films. It is a general purpose film developer that will provide fine grain, high acutance and excellent tonal range.
Novice users will appreciate its forgiving nature. This is due to the addition of inhibitors that help prevent over-development. Advanced users can tune the dilution ratio to suit their particular needs.
Note: H2O-Flow II is now included. Slightly different formula; same great results.
