Beautiful B&W Images

I used several rolls of this C-41 film with my Canon EOS Rebel K2 and a 24mm f2.8 lens and the images were great. Nice contrast and grain for shots around Los Angeles.

All around great, works well for half-frame too!

All around good looks, excellent contrast, super easy to find somewhere to develop. It's hard to find a film that can be shot on a half frame camera and still look ok (especially if you're gonna take it to a color lab) and this fits the bill all around.

This is a great film and so glad it is still available. Especially great for all my friends who are dipping their toes in the world of film....just needs a tweak in levels. Great shadow detail!

I only have experience with XP2 Super in 120 format and it is easily one of my favorite B&W films. I shot a roll in my Yashica A TLR and the results were impressive. It is sharp. The grain is inconspicuous in most situations. The film has enough contrast even for me. Great film for landscapes and cityscapes.

Exactly as always

I keep a large stock of frozen film (frozen so no worry about expiry dates). My ambition is to never run out of this wonderful film stock, especially as I can develop it at home myself in B&W chemistry. An extra 500' of film (which will load into around 150 36 exposure cassettes is just insurance!

A great film

This is a C-41 film, which I prefer nowadays because of its speed, moderate to low grain, and compatibility with Digital Ice and other dust & scratch removal software. This film yields excellent tonal range.

I love being able to develop this with my c41. Adding an option like this can make your developing process that little bit more efficient. Perfect for when I don't have a batch of BW chemistry mixed up or have a lot of color rolls to develop but only one or two BW

A really first rate B&W film

Ilford XP2 is a great film that doesn't get enough love. It has wonderful latitude in exposure over and under, while producing a sharp fine grain negative with lovely tonality. If you want to work with true monochromatic images, but don't have access to a wet darkroom, XP2 is processed in C41 chemistry, the same process that all commercial labs offer for color negative work. Try it, you might just love it

question

When using this film, is a filter recommended?
Asked by: Michael
What kind of filter do you think of? This film, like any BW-film, can be used with filters. It is not a question of the film. It is a question of the result you like to achieve. I would always recommend using filters when working with BW-film in the landscape. Yellow, orange, red turn in different degrees blue darker and the own filter-color brighter. By that you get a darker sky (BW-film mostly translates the color blue not dark enough) or you gain contrast, e.g. between green and red/yellow. Depending on your subject this might be useful. I would be careful doing portraits. Red cheeks or lips are getting pale with a red- or orange-filter. Red-filters are the only ones you have to correct even using TTL-metering. Give plus one exposure. Please mind: you cannot achieve these filter-effects digitally afterwards!! Because if you scan the film you have already a black and white negative. Digital filters are only working turning a colored picture into black and white. The fun with XP 2 is that you can shoot it at different ISOs, let's say between 100 and 400. Best use it at 200 ISO (if the scene is bright enough) - this gives you the sharpest results, if the sun goes away change ISO to 400 within the same film roll - the results get more grainy. Then give it to the next color-lab (C-41 process) to develop. (In fact it is a color-film that produces black and white pictures.) Have fun!
