Ilford was founded in 1879 in the English town of the same name. They are B&W royalty in the photography industry thanks to their 140-year heritage and their support for photographers with chemicals and development as well as film. In the mid-20th Century they produced several well-regarded camera lines (including one given to Princess Elizabeth that was later stolen!) but today they are focused on producing the best films and development processes that they can.

I'll usually have a couple spare rolls of film stashed in my bag in-case something pops up that I fancy shooting, HP5+ is almost a staple in there as it's so versatile! Great for high contrast, moody and dramatic scenes with as much a grunge-y cast as superpan and a higher speed for more difficult conditions.
I've home-developed a few rolls and you can get relatively clean results with Paranol S, or push to 3200 with Microphen with results comparable to delta!
Good for low light and general photography. Processes easily in loads of developers. Nice distinctive grain.
Can be pushed to 1600 and above.
Went out and shot some pictures with it.
My picture doesn't do it justice but it's a really good film. Would buy again :D
I am new to Both Medium format photography and Black and white film. After reading the reviews i went for some hp5 and i can say i am not disappointed, i like the grain and the tone good for a beginner. definately a winner for me on the 120 film format.
I've always liked HP5 in 35mm, however since moving up to medium format with a Pentax 645, it has grown into a film that I really like. Gone is the graininess that I normally associate with HP5 even if it is a 400 ASA film. With the right developer, it can produce really smooth tones. Highly recommended; especially in 120.
