    I used a lot of 120 Ilford xp2 on a trip overseas. I used it so that I could have the lot developed there by a good pro lab. I found it to be a terrific film. The 11x14 prints made from those negatives look very much like those from TMX/Xtol, although the xp-2 gave me two stops more speed, which was very useful for vacation style pictures. (The London Eye photo on my site provides and example. Alas, I had to trim some of the print to get it on my scanner. I liked it so much that I'm considering doing c41 here at home.

    I shoot some 35 mm Kodak C 41 B&W when I travel or in the Summer when the water tempature is 90-95 F from my tap and I dont want to fool with chilling the wash water. I process the negatives at any 1 hour drug store, some mini labs have the C 41 black and white paper and make reasonable prints for proofs. They print as well as TMax 400.

    Thanks for the link, BruceN.

    Bruce (of the Duncan clan) is as much a philosopher as he is a photographer and writer. Thus, the style of the article seems appropriately on the thoughtful, rather than technical side. While I like his nudes, he's probably best known for his two books on wooden boats.

    I have not seen the nudes in question. I am not anti-boat. I do find the ribs in the human female to be of more interest than those of boats that have them. Not to mention the bow.

    I consider C-41 chromogenic black and white to be the film equivalent of "Desaturate" in Photoshop. It's a reasonable facsimile but it ain't the real thing.

    Of course, it's only my opinion. To me, that's the only one that matters.

    I never had a problem enlarging the C-41 BW films, but to each his/her own. When XP2 first hit the market A friend and I cranked a 35mm neg up to 16x20 and it held together very well.
