Description

Ilford XP2 Super is a high-speed, fine-grained beauty of a 120 film - and most importantly it can be processed via the normal colour process which is offered as same-day development in many high-street shops! A useful chemical trick from Ilford that has wonderful benefits to the effective exposure latitude of the film

To understand more about the details above you can check out our film guide or if you want some inspiration then head over to our page on choosing your next film. And if you want the full details about the film, including technical information, read about Ilford XP2 over on EMULSIVE.

 

Ilford was founded in 1879 in the English town of the same name. They are B&W royalty in the photography industry thanks to their 140-year heritage and their support for photographers with chemicals and development as well as film. In the mid-20th Century they produced several well-regarded camera lines (including one given to Princess Elizabeth that was later stolen!) but today they are focused on producing the best films and development processes that they can.

How Does the Bundled Developing Work?

To make your analogue adventures even easier (and cheaper!) we’ve implemented the option to pre-pay for your processing when you buy your film. This means that you choose your developing and scanning options on this page, via the little tick-box above, and add everything to basket for an immediate 10% saving on all processing costs.

Your film will be dispatched in line with our usual shipping times (full details here) and you will also get an email with instructions on sending the film back to the WonderLab (with tracked shipping - on us!)

When you have shot the film - whether that takes you a day, month or year - you generate the free tracked postage label by following the simple instructions from the email, and pop it in the post with a note of your original order number. We’ll do the rest!

So buy the bundle and relax into the shooting process, knowing that you’ll get to see the final results from your photography, without having to reach for your wallet again.

Happy Shooting!

Fantastic and affordable

I just love that this can be developed in CR2 chemicals, bringing the developing costs down by quite a bit. I’ve heard some say they don’t feel like this looks true black and white, but I disagree, this film has so much character to it and is my favourite black and white film to use 35mm AND 120.

Works well, nice grain good for a cheap chromogenic bw stock

Very nice latitude and very forgiving, the film itself has a lot of density so it seems very nice for printing later on as well.
The scans I got had a lot of similar mid grey tones that i had to boost contrast but overall i think it looks very pleasing

Go to Monochrome

This is my go to B&W film. I use it whenever I need to test a new piece of kit, and whenever I want to be sure of a decent result.
Whilst this won't make you a better photographer, the tones are superb and it has enough latitude to forgive most clumsy exposure results.
If you have a really good piece of glass then this emulsion will allow a great deal of detail to be captured. It also works as expected with monochrome yellow, orange and red filters with no strange results.
I like traditional silver based emulsions just fine, but if I *really* want to be sure of a good result then I pop some XP2 in and concentrate on composition rather than what the emulsion will tolerate.

Not for purists

A new dimension in BnW photography...super sharp, super wide exposure latitude...what else you would want? Manual developing at home. This is one and (as far as I know) only C41 BnW film stock available. But it's great! So yeah, why not.
