I shot a roll of Ilford XP2 for a blog post over at the Viewfinders. I am in love with this film! I plan on shooting much more of it. I don’t shoot black and white very often. The film shop I take my film to be developed takes 24 hours for color and a week for black and white. While I realize the humor in me saying I am not patient for the film to be developed, sometimes I can’t stand waiting the whole week. However, the Ilford XP-2 is developed in C4 1 type processing, which means it is developed with the color film. This means I can get black and white film in 24 hours without waiting the week.
I love all the grays this film produces. It has a great contrast in low light without much grain.
Do you have a favorite film? Please share it with me. I would like to discover some more new films to shoot.
