The dark, quiet streets lit by lamp. Alleyways with music and laughter drifting from a local bar. Underpasses as the trains whistle and rattle on the rails above. Pools of light in a city shrouded in darkness and mystery.
Welcome to the world of Agent Shadow.
Three years ago, Kosmo Foto took 21st-Century film photography back to the 1960s with the launch of the Space Race-meets-Soviet-art Mono film. With their newest launch they have turned the clock even further back, to the world of Film Noir cityscapes and a double agent around every corner: meet our new film, Agent Shadow.
Successfully Kickstarted in mid-2021, here is your opportunity to capture top secret summer adventures!
Kosmo Foto Agent Shadow is a 400-ISO panchromatic black-and-white film, perfect for all 35mm cameras.
The film is an existing emulsion made by a company with more than a century’s experience in making film.
While the film is rated at ISO 400, the film can be push processed four stops up to ISO 6400 with appropriate development. Kosmo Foto Agent Shadow is perfect for shooting at box speed in bright or overcast light, but can also be used in much lower light conditions if needed.
The film is fine-grained at box speed but shows more atmospheric grain when push processed, along with more dramatic contrast.

Kosmo Foto began life as blog (previously called Zorki Photo) in 2012 and quickly gained a big and loyal following thanks to the original and interesting content. Fast forward a few years and they are taking a front seat in the resurgence of analogue photography, producing their first film (Mono) - a rebrand of a less-well-known emulsion - in 2017. Sales have been strong and we hope to see much more of this brand in the coming years!

I recently did some street photography very early in the morning with my zenit e & despite it being dark out. My photos came out wonderful. Heres my favourite one
First time using Agent Shadow. Really liked the grain and contrast.
I had better results outside then inside. Great detail in the highlights. Will definitely be buying a few more rolls to get used to how it handles shadows.
Finally took the big leap into film photography the other week there, and this was my first time using B&W film.
Any issues I had was purely down to me being clueless with how to use my camera and lens. While some of the photos didn’t turn out how I wanted them to, that was purely down to my inexperience. The film did a great job, and I’ll definitely be buying again.
Great for the price. Lovely contrast, deep blacks, and a moderate grain. Good speed (400 ISO) so a good all-rounder, especially on a cloudy day.
