4 thoughts on “Ilford XP2 Super VS Fomapan 100

  1. I’ve been shooting XP2 this summer but never thought it “saw” light the way that a traditional black & white film did, and at 400 had too much contrast. I don’t see it as a replacement for Tri-X. Interesting thought treating it as an ASA100 (or slower) film, I suppose I’ll have to keep using it. I will say it seems ideal for scanning and I like the ease/convenience of taking it to my local lab.

    1. Consider changing the EI based on the contrast needed and it is a very good fit. 400TX is a legendary film that is more legend than useful film considering all the changes made to it the last 30 Years! Fine grain BW or chromogenic are a logical move forward—-
