Great C-41 BW Negative Film

My local shop only offers C-41 processing. Thankfully, XP2 Super is an excellent option for me. The scans come back looking crisp and sharp. Highly recommended.

Never disappointed with Ilford

I hadn't tried this one before (usually stick to HP5 and FP4), but I will definitely be purchasing this again.

Ilford again!!!

Easy to develop at home with C41 kit and I can use ICE on my Coolscan for a hassle free scanning experience.

B&W in C41

It is unique since it is B&W film in color chemistry. Good for the classes I teach since the turnaround for development is quicker then traditional B&W. Prints and scans well

C-41 process!

This may not affect everyone, but my local lab only does C-41 processing and not any B&W processing. They have to ship it out and so the turnaround time is too long. I gave this a try, and i think the grain is super fine and i just love the way it looks. I like it better than a roll of Tmax100/Ilford HP-5 that i had processed also. The fact that any lab that does C-41 can process this film is also a big deal to me, its much cheaper and improves my turnaround time also.

A long time favorite

This is an excellent film that produces great result in a very wide range of conditions. I find it to be a great choice for situations where I don't know what I am likely to encounter, such as low light, high contrast, etc.

Lovely and flexible

I develop this in HC-110, and it looks great at 400, but absolutely fantastic and virtually grain-free at 200. It can be pushed a lot farther with nice results, too.

How many rolls of film are in a brick of Ilford XP2 Super 400 120B&W? Is there any discount for quantity? Thanks!

With this type of film, we purchase it in gross bulk from the manufacturer and sell it per roll. We do not have any brick packs that we sell in this particular instance. Our film is already discounted to the lowest possible price we can offer it to you at regardless of the quantity you purchase.

question

Im learning to develop B&W negatives on my own. Since this is a chromogenic film, can this film be developed in the standard B&W developing process or would this require a different process?
Asked by: Tibra A.
I have successfully developed this in traditional black and white chemistry. There are interesting threads on internet. The reason I did was experimentation and cost. I am happy with my results.
