AgfaPhoto is the film photography spin-off of the much-bigger German corporation Agfa-Gevaert. It's film heritage stretches back to 1964 when it began producing B&W films aimed at the consumer market but was set up as a separate organisation in 2004 to allow the parent company to focus on other industries. Much smaller now than it's heyday in the 80s and 90s, Agfa is known for film that is affordable and reliable - and had a passionate following in Poundland until recently.

I am not a big fan of the grain. To me it feels like a cheap film, which isn't always a bad thing but it does place it down the list, mainly because there are some films at a similar price point that are perfect for my style. To be fair I did use an unconventional development method (semi-stand in caffenol) and the results were decent. The film is quite a neutral one. It isn't punchy and you don't have to watch your highlights as much as some others, but for me the character wasn't there. I may well try another roll in HC110 and review my review but for now this one stands

Very grainy

I found the grain on this film a bit intrusive. I guess there are images that would be enhanced by it but it didn’t suit me. It might suit landscape or street photography. (The image of the fence and clouds was the best off the whole roll). For a 400 speed film the grain is very strong. It’s a bit cheaper than ilford hp5 but not worth it for me.

A great all round black & white film

A really forgiving film with just the right amount of grain. I found it works well in both bright and dim light. Nice "skin tone" look great for architecture. and Also it develops well Infosol (my preferred developer).

From a layman's point of view Agfa APX400 seems pretty good to me. It's smooth and the grain doesn't jump out at you. Nice contrast too. I'm pretty pleased with the results I got. I'd use it again at the drop of a hat.

First B&W Experience

Played around with a few colour rolls previously and this is my first go with black and white. It blew me away. Love the style and ease of use. Looks like I'll deffo be back for more!
