NOTE - Older film issues are listed at the bottom of this page.

This film has been very impressive in dr5 and is as unique as SCALA. This very-clear-base film was made for reversal processing and has a very wide image latitude, over 10 stops. It has a very good base, enabling a variable speed, producing a visually 'crisp' image. FOMA-R produces a rich steely-neutral, with a little more contrast than SCALA. FOMA-R produces a sharper image quality than the SCALA film. Factory rated @100, normal in dr5 is 160iso. There are no disadvantages to shooting this film @ its factory speed.       (to view below images larger: right-click / view image) DO NOT shoot this film lower than it's factory speed.
NOTE: This film can only be run as a positive, IT CAN NOT BE PROCESSED AS A NEGATIVE.
