Ilford XP2 (120, 400 iso) user-review

Black and White film uses C-41 process, Shoot your heart out, develop it anywhere (where there is a film lab with the C-41 stuff). Marvel at the love you will have for this film, Marvel more when it winks at you and says "yeah we gonna get along just fine..."

Okay, so i got this film because it uses C-41 developing process that can be done on any normal photo place, I think its great and i was gobsmacked at to how forgiving it is. You get some really nice contrasts not to mention some of my looked like they were taken 50 years ago (especially if you photographed a 50 year old stuff).

Also if you live in a country that doesn’t get much sun then its perfect. the high ISO it has sucks in all the light it needs like a hoover and gives you much fonder memories of that wet day in Wales than you should have!

I’m not a professional critic but i think this film is great, as well as the Ilford FP5 which is pretty good too. They say pictures speak a thousand words so i think i must have added 20,000 words on this one, so read em’ and see if you think it could be for you.
