Ask our Experts!

Ilford's XP2 Super is a high-speed chromogenic black and white negative film that can be processed alongside conventional color negative films in C-41 chemistry. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27°, however can be under- or overexposed in order to adjust contrast as well as the balance of grain and sharpness. When rated at ISO 400, the most neutral balance between a fine grain structure and high sharpness will be afforded. Its wide exposure latitude can also be used to better control highlight and shadow values, as well as an expansive range of middle tones. Additionally, XP2 Super is designed for printing on traditional black and white papers, with Multigrade contrast filters, as well as on RA-4 color papers with maintained print color neutrality.

This item is one 24-exposure roll of 35mm film in a DX-coded cassette.

Film Type Panchromatic black and white chromogenic negative film
Film Format 35 mm (24 exposures)
Sensitivity ISO 400/27°

    I got this film just to see how a Chromogenic B&W film would develop and I must say if you use a C-41 workflow and you are in the mood for B&W this is a viable option. This film will give you a very standard looking B&W image with no surprises.

    OK for testing a camera

    This film is ok to test a film camera, but when it gets processed by the C-41 processor it turns bright pink. This could be the processing machine, too.

                                No need for specialised labs. C-41 processing makes it so convenient and the look of the photos is amazing

                                  I have created some wonderful works with this film. Everything from studio to snowy landscapes. If you are looking for film in which you can achieve an amazingly sharp/crisp look... buy this one. I highly recommend it.

                                    Easy to get developed quickly at the corner store and scans very well. There is a bit of color haze too that I like.
