Monochrome Monday… Morston Quay

Fujica GW690 – 1/250s, f11, – Foma Retropan 320

An image from my first (and apart from a roll currently loaded in my Olympus OM20, possibly my last) roll of Foma Retropan 320…

I’ve not heard many positive reports of this film, with a number of people saying that it’s very lacking in contrast… I’d agree with that (although maybe a grey day on the North Norfolk coast isn’t an entirely fair test) but it also seems to be very easily damaged, about half of the shots are pretty much unusable due to what look like smears on the emulsion. Other films shot and processed at the same time as this roll (mainly Ilford Delta 400) are perfectly fine with just the occasional dust spot.
