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.

The most versatile BW film around

This film has never let me down. Punchy contrast, yet at times this film can have wonderful vintage softness. I can’t recommend this film enough! Not to mention the low cost of developing due to its C41 processing!

Super c41

I've been using XP2 for over 25 years now. Initially for the ease and cost of processing in c41 at any lab. But the results have always stood on their own against normally processed B&W. Sample shot was from 12 year old expired film, scanned and corrected to monochrome to remove a purple cast.

My favourite part about this film is it can be processed the same way colour can with the same bnw results, very good contrast and a fine grain

Convenient for 1 hour processing

The only reason I shot this was for the convenience of a black and white film that can be processed at Jessops. It has a nice look, slightly more contrast than HP5 and good exposure latitude

Good for colour deveopers

I quite like this film, its good if you're into only colour developing and haven't any experience with black and white film or just dont have those chemicals. The range of tones came out better than i expected, however it just doesn't feel the same as true black and white, its better than digital black and white though.
