Ilford XP2 Super 400 overview

  • 1Description

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.

Ilford XP2 Super 400 reviews

XP2 Super Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ilford XP2 Super... An outstanding, wide range chromogenic film that I use exclusively in my Nikons...I get my best results shooting it at ISO 200, and having it processed at its rated speed of 400. Images are slightly less contrasty, as I prefer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously, the best b+w film I was around when XP2 was first released. �It does things other b+w films can't with greater convenience. �Rated at ISO 400 it has the grain of a 100 speed film. �Overexpose it a stop, and its grain becomes that of an ISO 50 film. �It does wonders with flash and skin tones. �It gives amazing shadow detail (particularly when overexposed a little) and retains an incredible amount of highlight detail (although the curve isn't particularly linear for the highlights). �Especially when scanned (traditional wet printing can honestly be a �bear with this film) it allows you to achieve looks that would require days of experimenting with film and develop combinations to achieve. �Use traditional b+w processes for the looks you want (I still love Tri-X in Rodinal, for example), but this is the best all-purpose b+w film, period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite B&W film Easy to get developed quickly at the corner store and scans very well. There is a bit of color haze too that I like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great if you feel like B&W but use color 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very useful, inexpensive film This is a C41 b&w, so the cost to develop is very low. I'm lucky and live near a 1-hour lab, so I can get it turned around quickly, whereas silver halide of E6 takes longer. It works very well for normal indoor light and has a lot of latitude. It is especially nice for street work with normal and semi-side lenses. It seems to have problems with wide angle - producing vignetting. Doesn't seem to work well with the common b&w filters, especially red where the grain becomes exaggerated. It is therefore less useful for landscapes. If comes out of the lab very flat, so it scans well. C41 is always more prone to spotting, in my experience. May just be sloppy lab work or mucked up chemistry. Since it's C41, you can use Digital Ice while scanning, which ruins standard B&W.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE Chromogenic Standard-Bearer I suppose it's somewhat fitting that XP2 Super has become the "last man standing" in regard to chromogenic B&W film – they were first to market with this film type (okay, pretty much the same time Agfa released theirs, but who remembers *them?*). I used XP2 off-and-on over the last few decades, but this film truly came into its own when digital film scanning started too become more mainstream. This film scans so well it's almost scary; use a scanner with Digital ICE and the workflow becomes even easier and faster, while maintaining the film's virtues of almost-vanishing grain, silly-wide latitude and high detail. And, unlike Kodak's recently-deceased BW400CN (which I also liked a lot, alas), you can still hit the darkroom with this film and make a silver print without going though major contortions. In short: highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and Convenient I bought the XP-2 film on the recommendation of another pro photographer. I'm using it for photojournalism and convenience of processing. The look is exactly what I want and processing at the lab, drug store or me the prints and scans on a disk along with the negatives....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent smooth grain film I stand develop this in R09 one shot (a black and white developer) and the results are very nice. Smooth clean grain, lots of contrast and sharpness. Highly recommend giving this a try if you're looking for crisp, high contrast B&W images.
