A great film with high definition and nice range of tones
I never use black and white films, I like the colors and saturation with x-pro but I like to know new films and a couple of years ago I tried the Agfa APX 35mm 100. Almost all the time I use Kodak Film for black and white, but this was a opportunity for something new. I love the Agfa CT-Precisa, but this was very different….
Its definition is one of the best that I’ve tried, even compared to color negative. There isn´t any visible grain and It has a great range of tones. The film has high contrast, its blacks are strong and white very soft. The details looks perfect with it. I made these pictures with my Canon AE-1, in normal ISO settings (not pushed) and the definition obtained was practically perfect.
Unfortunately I’ve never had an Agfa APX in my hands again. But it´s only because I don´y buy much black and white film, but it´s easy to find and it´s very cheap. Indeed, Agfa APX has been a monochrome film that I really liked to use, but I have yet to try its abilities when push-processed and when I have one again I will certainly do it by myself!
This film has fine grain, especially when cross-processed in C41. And if you use a Lomo camera, maybe the LC-A or the LC-Wide, the results will be more interesting with strong vignettes in your pictures!
This is a tribute to a great Austrian sports photographer, Lothar Rübelt. In an era with no high speed films available, he was able to immortalize wonderful moments in sports - from diving to gymnastics and football. In creating this tribute, I took a series of photos of an amateur football match using expired black and white film developed using an uncommon chemical. Take a look after the jump!
My passion for old and analogue cameras hadn't stayed unnoticed among my friends and acquaintances. Which is why I've received cameras as gifts for many times now. My Agfa Clack is an example. It's about 60 years old, fully functional, and a real film eater.
I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!

They were 90,000 strong and oozing with love for Mick, Keith, Ron, Bill and Charlie. High school teacher Joseph Szabo captured the great gathering using three 35mm cameras. These photos are now considered collector's items and will be released in a 2015 edition of "Rolling Stones Fans".
