The understated art of mono meets the sheer convenience of c41 processing with Ilford's XP2 series of black & white negative films!
Shooting in black and white is cool and all, but it’s such a hassle when you don’t have a darkroom or a nearby prolab to help you out. The great guys at Ilford answers your prayers with their XP2 emulsion. Now you can get the minimalistic but bold tones of mono and have the privilege of developing it at your the corner photo lab! The XP2 also comes in 135mm and 120 formats so whatever weapon you choose, you’ll always be able to shoot with the best monochromatic photographic ammunition.
