Another day another film …

Another-day-another-filmPentax 6×7 ƒ11 1/60s @ 400 Ilford XP2 Super ISO 55mm ƒ3.5 Takumar

This believe it or not is the first time I have ever used Ilford XP2 as 120 film. I have used the odd roll in 35mm ( or was it XP1 ) and I remember being impressed but most of the work had to be in colour film then so to be honest I really didn’t pay enough attention to how good it really is. A  few years later I went completely digital so it didn’t get a look in anyhow. I do remember reading a piece by Roger Hicks where he praised the film and he also uses mostly 35mm I believe, that was in the late eighties. Anyway this film is really good and it gives me a reason to use the old Pentax and Yashica’s more often. The only problem is I have to drive 35km to get 120 processed.
