Ilford XP2 thread

Hello,

The thread " Lets see those ''film'' shots" is becoming gigantic and so is "Show us your grain! ". I was thinking that there is enough critical mass so that every major type of film could have its own thread. That way when doing a search for the film you are interested in, you would geta lot of examples.

What do you guys think about this?


Cheers,

Luc

Nice shots Luc, did you take the third one from the Seabus or North Van?

Yes I agree each film should have its own thread, I previously started one for FomaPan R.

I'll resurrect that thread next week, after I get some more scans back from ABC.

Thanks.
All the shots are from Harborview Park in North Van.
I heard about Fomapan in another forum - is that a film that replaces an AGFA film something like that?
It supposed tobevery good.

Cheers,

Luc

Luc, lovely tones there.

I really like XP2, I had piles of it at one point... now I have a pile of BW400CN instead, depended on the deal. I wish I were observant enough to really know the details of differences between the two films, past the most gross

I use XP2 with all my cameras, including the 120 med fmt ones, where it really gives a long tonal gradient. Here's a sampling, mainly with Pentax gear but other cameras too.



r2 filter, smc-a 2.8/28, KX




smc-a 2.8/28, KX



DA 16-45, Program Plus





Yashinon DX 2.8/35, TL Electro X



Jupiter-12, Fed-3

I am still trying out a lot of films - and at this point i am not sure I could do a blind-folded test either. That said I think that the film that get the most my attention in B&W is Tri-X. It just has this strong contrast and look "from the past" that gets me ticking. I still have to try Agfa ATX 100 and TMax 100 and 400.

Nice pictures, and I am glad to see that the Stock Exchange is still standing after the last months!

Cheers,

Luc
