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.

This is a great beginner film and at a very reasonable price. Don’t expect amazing results but equally the results are certainly not terrible either. Great film for messing around with, I used an SLR but might get more fun out of it using a point and shoot. Grain is evident and tones are a bit flat. It wasn’t a particularly bright day when I used this, others seem to get better results with better light, so I might try it again during the summer.
Not used AGFA films for years and never used the 400 ISO film. Looking at the other reviews I thought I would order some.
What a fantastic film grain is fine for a 400 ISO works well in very low contrast light and great punch when its high contrast. I developed it in XTOL stock. I think they are a good combination to get the fine grain.
This film was my first BW film I tried on point and shoot and also on SLR camera. and I liked it a lot. This shot I took on our mountain trip with my friends.
This APX 400 film from Agfa produces good quality negatives, and the film dries nice and flat when developed. The only minor problem I had with it was it jamming up when loading up the Paterson spool for developing, though this could easily be down to me...I'm quite new to home developing.
I shot the film at box speed in my Praktica Super TL3, using the Auto Cosmogon lens (Helios 44, just branded differently) and developed it in Df96 Monobath.
Would I buy it again?... probably!
First time I've used this purely out of curiosity. I shot it at box speed on my Olympus OM2N Good price. Good smooth tonal graduation. Slightly more grain and less contrast than what I am used to but I like it. It's sharp and crisp. I dont do my own developing so cant help there but I do make my own prints and it may be worth noting the image here has undergone some dodging and burning.
