    Pinholes are a possibility - a microscope would quickly rule that in or out.

    But - the problem appears to be happening selectively in the XP2 only. Tht's why I recommended the test in my previous post.

    There is a post on XP2 "black spots" on the Ilford website:

    I sounds like the same problem. The photographer (from Wisconsin) requested help from Ilford. No response from Ilford yet.

    There is a recent thread on photo.net about a possible recall of XP2 because of a manufacturing defect in one or several batches of this film.

    Well, I just processed twelve rolls of XP2 (five sessions) and guess what -- black dots on nearly every frame. Wonderful.

    Do you have to get XP2 developed via C41? I'm guess so. So this means you have to trust your local lab to do a decent job right? I may try some and see how my lab handles it...its been awhile since i've been there.

    When all is said and done, all they got is fading dye clouds. Not that my silver negs are going to be worth millions someday...

    First bleach out the silver, then you dye and fade.
