Email from John Schwind says he might carry Fomapan 16mm again if we show some interest. He did not say at what price, but in the past he has been cheaper than anyone else (in the USA), and did not rip us off for postage either.

I want him to carry some 1R. Drop John some email if you think you might be interested. If we make it worth his while, he will stock it again.
His email address is:

jaschwind@operamail.com

& John's web site is:

I would definitely like to get some 16mm Fomapan from John if he stocks it. It would be great if he could get single perf, but double perf would be okay. Either way, count me in.

What are the characteristics that you like about this film stock? I've never used it.

To my eye it looks like B&W Kodak stock from the 1940's. It is said that Fomapan has more of a silver content than current Kodak B&W stocks. I don't know if that is true or not.

Here is a data sheet:

And here is some more info:
