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!
