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.

Easy Ilford

The greatest appeal of this film is its ability to be processed in C-41 chemicals, meaning it can be processed near enough anywhere. That doesn't mean it's a naff film, I take great pleasure from its contrast and texture. A mainstay of my camera bag.

Wonderful affordable film.

This is one of my favourites from Ilford. Great for nearly all types of photography.

I love the slightly darker contrasty results you get with it - really dramatic.

Ptetty good

XP2 Super is a sharp, fast, fine grain black and white film. It can be used for any photographic subject, but ensures excellent results when there is a wide subject brightness range. The film yields high contrast negatives and has an extremely wide exposure latitude making it suitable for use in varied lighting conditions. XP2 Super is easy to process. It is a black and white film which is processed in C41 type processing chemicals alongside colour negative films.
