AgfaPhoto APX 400 overview

  • 1Description

AgfaPhoto's APX 400 Professional Black and White Negative Film is a high speed black and white film for producing prints using a traditional black and white printing process. The film exhibits a high nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° and can effectively be pushed to ISO 1600/33° for use in low-light conditions and with fast-moving subjects.

Standard development in black and white chemistry yields a fine grain texture with high resolution and tonal latitude. The film also responds to push and pull development; however testing is recommended prior to shooting.

This item is a 36-exposure roll of 35mm (135) film.

AgfaPhoto APX 400 reviews

APX 400 Professional Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A film worth experimenting with This film deserves exploring. I am not giving it 5 stars because I try to reserve the top rating for the best, and since I have only used this film once I wouldn't know that yet. I think it deserves to be run through different developers to see what it responds to with. The one time I did use it, it worked fine. It acts more like a traditional film as opposed to a flat-grained film, and it is unique. I know this review may be lacking with detailed information. The main reason I am writing it is to provide everyone the attached example so people can judge for themselves from my first result.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meter carefully The good news is the film base is very similar to Neopan, it dries flat and is easy to scan the negatives. The bad news is that 400 ISO may be optimistic and you must be very meticulous with how you meter and develop. It's very unforgiving compared to HP5 or Tri-X. Processed with D76 per recommended time of Massive Developing Chart. It's a matter of taste, I'm sure for portraits it's great, but for fast changing conditions in the real world I will stick with HP5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great film I have shot this on a few occasions, paired with Sprint Standard developer I was very happy with the results. Great lattitude and very good mid tones. The closest films I have seen that come to this are Kodak Tri X and tonality wise, Kodak Tmax 400. I will definitely be getting more of this in the near future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Results I tried a roll of APX 400 as a possible alternative to Tri-X. I found the results very uneven, where the vast majority of shots were of just so, so technical quality. The one shot I salvaged took a lot of Photoshop work to make it presentable. I developed the roll in stock D76. Maybe you'll have better luck but for now, I'm sticking with Tri-X.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from For 400 ASA, I'll look elsewhere Recently I have been trying a number of B&W films of various speeds, pushed or not pushed. For a 400 film, this is too grainy and somehow not in a good way. It doesn't give you anything in return for the cost in grain, the way Ilford 3200 does. For a 400 ASA, I like Kodak TMax, Tri-X and Ilford Delta Pro a lot better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I love this film. It has a clarity and cleanliness that is refreshing with terrific detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most versatile film! I tried to like Tri-X and other ISO 400 B&W emulsions but there were all not quite my thing... until I ran across the original Agfa APX. It's the best thing there is since sliced bread; it can be pushed all the way to ISO 1600 with minimal loss of sharpness, has a nice contrast range, and it's absolutely reliable. Sure, there's Ilford. Now, this is a new emulsion and I believe it'll be just as good as the original.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still love to shoot film Always great when you can get good quality film quickly. Local stores are more expensive.
