Agfa XRG 200 (35mm, 200 iso) User-Review

Another long-gone film from Agfa...

Agfa XRG 200 is a film that I had never heard of – until I bought an old camera at a sale which had a 126 cartridge of it inside. I’ve not gotten round to finishing that cartridge (the camera doesn’t work!), but I did manage to find a 35mm version on the internet. I was surprised to see that the expiry date of my film was 2008, meaning the film was relatively modern! Agfa have a reputation for making amazing films – Ultra, Precisa, RSXII, APX – so I was intrigued to try this one out.

I loaded a roll into my LC-A and took a variety of photos in different conditions. When exposed well, the film performs well – colours are rich and saturated.

In lower light, or shadows, the film starts to weaken – some grain is present, but it doesn’t detract from the image.

I’ve got 3 films left, and will definitely be using them soon!

    Great gallery!!! I have several rolls of this film, but must have gotten a batch that was really badly stored, as the colours really don't pop out as they do on your shots, I have several shots uploaded to my home. Well done!
