    any stores with agfa in stock?

    Hi, I've just tried to buy some APX100 and the fairly big stores over here say agfa doesn't deliver equipment anymore (I've heard about their problems but didn't realize the really stopped already)

    Maybe another film has the same 'hardness'? I've started B&W recently and tried some films and really liked the apx100. (don't like tmax 100 as much).

    Or maybe a store in the Netherlands that still has the film?

    cheers,
    Quinten

    This is an excellent question for the Dutch Forum I think.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Indeed, but online stores are fine as well, I know there are some good ones, but forgot their names.

    Above that there are many english users who might have a nice alternative film like apx. Ilford delta maybe? I am not sure about that though.

    And (but this is a btw) I think the internet should be english all the way, don't you hate it when you visit a site right on the topic you're looking for and it's french? So I should stick to my principles and don't write dutch neither.

    nordfoto.de has lots of AGFA, even some of the odd sheet film sizes like 6.5x9 and 13x18cm.

    Delta is very different and much more 'modern looking' with finer grain. APX100 is one of a kind - wonderful.

    As an alternative, you might want to try Plus-X or Ilford FP4+. I actually started using APX100 as an alternative when B&H and Adorama stopped carrying the grey market Plus-X at $1.99/ roll. I expose it at 125 and develop in D76 1:1 at 8:30.

    If you don't like the high contrast of Plus-X, try FP4+.
