One thing you will find perplexing when printing with xp2 is that if you use the same basic setup ie.* contrast setting * that you did for lets say a HP5 in ID11, you will find your xp2 negative prints looking very *flat, or low contrast*
You need to raise the filter value, sometimes, by 2 full grades. This is a common problem when using this film for the first time.
Once you establish a *grade for xp2* use this starting point.
You will find this to be true with other film/developer combinations that are somewhat different than the norm.
