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.

Great film

One of my favourite film stocks of all time. Never fails too give good results. Very fine grained for a 400 film, and very forgiving. The fact that it develops in c-41 is a big plus, making it easier and often cheaper to process commercially.
Well worth a go if you’ve never tried it before.

Awesome Film

I bought a roll of this to run through my grandfathers old Rolleiflex, not really expecting much. Considering the age and condition (a little bit dusty!) of the camera I was really impressed with how the shots came out. Worked really well indoors in low light as well as bright outdoor shots. A very versatile film and uses C41 processing which is a major bonus!

Great way into B&W film photography

Ilford XP2 is a great way of getting into B&W film photography, especially if you don't home develop your film. It is developed in the C41 colour developing process which means you can post it to Analogue Wonderlab and let them handle it for you. If you do develop your film at home it is possible to develop XP2 in one of the popular developers e.g.HC-110 and get great results. I shot a roll in my basic Agfa Isolette 1 medium format folding camera and developed it at home in a Cinestill CS41 kit and got great images. A very versatile film for just about everything.

Versatile film

A very versatile C41 developed black and white film. With an ISO of 400 and very little grain makes the film suitable for all subjects. Even if you develop your own B&W film this is a handy film to have as you can send if off with your colour films to be developed.

A film to trust

I really like XP2. The bonus of course is it is developed in C41. I've always had good results. The images are fairly smooth and the latitude of the film is forgiving.
