From a visit with “Dido” the other day…
(Was planning to list my Hassy, but made the mistake of pulling it out…)
This is Ilford 400 XP2 (chromogenic B&W) shot at f/4 and developed in C-41 chemistry.
This film has two distinct advantages over regular B&W:
- Regular sissy labs will do it without having to send it away; and
- You can use Digital “ICE” (or whatever your scanner calls it…) when scanning, as there are no silver particles on the film when processed in C-41.
For interest’s sake, you can actually develop it as regular B&W if you prefer, but it is slightly pricier stock, and there is no added benefit at that point in time (as then there WILL be silver, and you WON’T be able to use infrared dust & scratch reduction).
