View Full Version : xp2 question
what's the 'fastest' you've ever used this film and been satisfied with the results?
Personally - 400ASA. :D
Plenty have used it at 800 and got good results. The Ilford technical pdf (http://www.ilford.com/html/us_english/pdf/XP2SGB_QX.pdf) also says it's fine at 800.
My best results came at 320.
I set my meter to ISO 250. On occasion I accidentally underexpose a shot, and seeing the results reminds me again why I want to avoid higher ISO settings! ISO 800 just doesn't sound workable to me, unless you're just metering the shadows.
I've also tried push-processing, and this seems to only slightly boost shadow density, while really going heavy on the highlight density. I'll do this for low-contrast subjects & lighting, and then set the meter to ISO 400.
