impurities in XP2 : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

I have been not doing B/W for a while. I heard of impurities/particles in XP2 about 8-10 years ago. What about now? The C-41 processed negative of XP2 is going to last as long as those "traditional" B/W film?

I use XP-2 quite a bit and have had no problem with impurities/particles. The emulsion is more fragile than most though, vulnerable to scratches. Also check out Kodak's T400CN, which is said to be better. I'll be trying it when my stock of XP-2 runs low.
