CPB ReSpool | F400 | Black & White Film | 36 exposures | ISO 400
Film Type: B&W Negative Film
Expiration: Fresh stock expiring in May, 2026
THESE ROLLS DO NOT HAVE A DX CODE
The CPB Darkroom is thrilled to expand its line of ReSpooled film with the addition of the Fomapan 400. Excellent for beginners and the film-curious, the Foma 400 is easy on the eyes and your pocket. Its 400 ISO rating enables one to shoot in unfavourable lighting conditions and is relatively forgiving in errors of exposure. The wide exposure latitude of the film promises great results even when pushed or pulled without any change in processing.
This film stock is fresh and acquired from PhotoImpex Berlin and hand-carried to India. The CPB Darkroom team has tested these stocks extensively, including technical ISO rating tests that have confirmed that they are in good as fresh condition.
The CPB Darkroom will be offering a mail-order service for film development, traditional contact printing and hi-resolution scanning. More information and rates for these services can be found here.
Prepaid Processing & Scanning
The CPB Community Darkroom now offers a full range of commercial development and scanning services on a drop-off or mail-order basis. All films are processed in a temperature-regulated darkroom to the highest standards. Negatives are scanned with an Espon V800 flatbed scanner.
We are excited to launch an exciting discounted price for prepaid film development and scanning. You can shoot and return your rolls to the CPB Darkroom by courier or drop them off anytime within 365 days of your order. The prepaid package includes the cost of development, scanning at medium-resolution JPEGs as well as return shipping of the negatives to you after scanning. The cost does not include shipping of rolls back to the CPB Darkroom for development.
Features of CPB ReSpool
- Professionally hand-spooled in a dust-controlled environment.
- All film rolls are guaranteed to have 36 frames.
- Cartridges are not DX-coded and hence not suited to Point and Shoot cameras that do not allow the ISO to be set manually.
- All film leaders have been cut with an industry-standard leader cutter for uniformity.
What is Respool?
Respooling film is the act of purchasing film in bulk quantities by the 100's of feet and spooling them by hand into used metal cartridges. The film is loaded in a light-controlled environment using specialised equipment and produces results which are identical to commercially packaged films (unless mentioned as untested expired stocks).
