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.

Most times I shoot a roll of XPII, I wonder why I bother using anything else mono-wise.
Lovely latitude, so room for a bit of user error on the exposure front.
The lab just really seems to get this film as well, and do it up flawlessly every time.
Last image is a work in progress I'll get right one day - the house by the harbour at Burnham Overy Staithe that inspired the book When Marnie Was There.
Good way to try b&w if you only have c41 lab near you.
Hadn’t taken B&W shots for years - I think in colour and struggle to imagine in B&W, but am really pleased with the results and will be regularly shooting with this film.
I've rapidly grown to love XP2, mainly because AW just seem to bring out the best in it.
What I like most of all is the consistent results and the minimal amount of work needed to make the scans really sing.
I know the film's really-forgiving. It even copes with my ancient cameras and lenses, not to mention my shonky exposures.
Great way into the adventure that is old-school (ish...) black and white.
