Subject: New Ilford film

New Ilford film

From: Michael McCormick <ah670>
Date: Sunday, October 20, 1991
Ilford XP1 has been out for a number of years, and is being replaced by
XP2.  For the photographer, it is an extraordinary film, virtually
grainless, especially in the mid tones.  And why not?  There's no grain.

However, it is chromagenic, and is subject to the usual deterioration of
C41 process images.  Fortunately, it has not overrun the B&W market.
There are many excellent silver films available, and they are more
commonly used.
