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

4

Agfa’s best consumer film on a speed you can always be sure it´s the right choice.

Having a film with 100 ISO may have finer grain and therefore be more sharp while a 400 ISO may be better in low light situations, this Agfa Vista 200 is the film you want to have lying in your camera and rest assured nothing could go wrong.

The Vista 200 loves the sun and bold colours. It likes to hang around at the beach, likes to take a walk in the first rays of spring or the cold but yet heart warming sun on a February day. The Vista 200 likes to be put in every camera, doesn’t even bother to be loaded on such plastic exotics like the Diana+ 35mm Back.

Colours really shine with this film. The saturation pops out to reach your eyes. And if the sun hides behind clouds, don´t despair! The Vista 200 can handle it: The colours are still nice, the grey is melted into the canvas and it likes artificial light and makes it looks as if it was natural.

This is the film I buy in large quantities on a regular basis. I always have it on my bag without questions asked. Try it out, you won´t be disappointed!
