    Nice one, Amin. I really like that film--and Kodak's recently discontinued BW400CN. Nice tones and sharpness, & moderate grain. Best of all, you can use ICE to remove dust and scratches when scanning. But now that I'm doing my own home film processing, I use traditional B&W film and I donated my supply of BW400CN and XP2 to a local photo program for urban youth that my daughter volunteers with (http://www.firstexposures.org).

    I have gotten some good grainy results from XP2.. I dig it especially when using an orange filter!

    Now this is the C-41 black and white film I always recommended to people who wanted traditional silver gelatin prints. It was quirky to print beside silver halide films, but nothing like the Kodak orange based alternative.
