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 find this film to be one that's a bit fussy about developers, and so far this roll gave me my best results after developing it in HC110 dilution E for 12 mins 15 seconds at 20°C.
Quite liked the way this rendered the trees.
I wanted them gaunt and contrasty, just a silouhette almost. So I picked a rum old day, bracketed the exposures a bit and tried it with and without a few filters - yellow, orange, red - needless to say without writing down which was which.
It's a different look to your benchmark medium-speed films like good old HP5, blacker blacks and a bit more grain in your lighter bits so to speak.
These were shot at box speed before I got them Wondified.
Slight tweaks to clarity, tiddly bit if vignette and job's a good 'un for £7.50 a roll.
This is a great film, but I do find it to be a bit "developer fussy", not very much contrast with some developers, though I've found that it's ok in HC110 Dilution E.
This film shows true professional potential, and it's almost half the price of Tmax. Very resilient to push and pull, I pushed this one stop with a green/yellow filter and I'm happy with the results; gritty with good latitude.
A great alternative to HP5 that seems to be quite reliable, though I've not shot a great deal of this film as yet. I am using it for the Frugal Film Project this year, so let's see how it goes....so far so good though. 👍
