Default Blue Foma 200 negs

I've developed a roll of Foma 200 120 in Rodinal and It came out blue. The film was thoroughly fixed and washed. Years ago I have developed several rolls of that film (Fomapan Creative 200 at the time) in 135 format, and the negs came out clear. The developer at the time was Ilfotec HC.

Has the base of the film changed, is there a differnece among formats, or did Ilfotec HC washed out the anti-halo layer?

Mine came out that way as well, doesn't seem to effect the printing though.

Hi there.
I confirm, my Fomapan 100 120 are blue too. It's just the color of the film base. So far it doesn't affect my VC paper prints which came out just fine.

Cheers, Marty.

Yes, I did, but it didn't effect the printing grade noticeable, although I thought it would..

Blue and very flimsy, negs look OK but I prefer the feel of Ilford of Fuji -

All foma120 films come with a blue tint, something to do with the base,at a guess, but I have never had problems printing them on mg papers, The 35mm films are on a different base and come out clear,Richard

Thanks Richard! So there are differences among formats.

According to Foma's own spec sheets, the true ISO of Foma 200 is only 200 (and then, by courtesy) in speed increasing developers. Their figures, and my tests, indicate that it's effectively identical in speed to FP4, i.e.about 80 in Perceptol to 160-180 in Microphen. I generally give up to 1/3 stop more exposure, or use a spot meter, than the true ISO, because I prefer the tonality. Tonally gorgeous; quite grainy.

Cheers,

R.
