Strength:

The best 200 pro film (if it isn't the only 200 pro film) price made in germany outstanding colours

Weakness:

the grain might have been finer: in underlit places looks sort of like gold 200.

Nice film. I really like the colours. Be careful choosing a lab: some "consumer" ones may mess up the prints. Looks great when developed in pro lab.

Strength:

Terrific price.

Decent all-around performance (which is pretty hard to find) - it does well with skintones, but still pops colors.

Grain is good.

Weakness:

I tend to not like 200-speed films. The new 400-speed emulsions are every bit as fine-grained, and offer an additional stop of speed. At the same time, if I really want to make huge enlargements, then I go with a 100-speed film. This isn't a "weakness" of the Agfa product; just a comment on 200-speed print films in general.

Sort of a compromise film, but I think it offers the wrong end of the compromise - the grain of a top-end 400-speed film, only without the speed. For all-purpose print film shooting, I'd recommend a 400-speed film - you'll get similar grain and color, with an additional stop of speed that can be very useful.

Customer Service

Not needed.
