Ilford HP5 Plus is the best-selling black-and-white 120 film in our store, and with very good reason! Beloved by film shooters, this iconic Ilford emulsion has a gorgeous grain structure that will provide the perfect vintage look to your photos - particularly in medium format.

Ilford HP5 is also very forgiving of exposure, so you will get great results in a variety of difficult light and contrast situations.

You can also push it to 1600 speed while maintaining good detail and resolution, and after shooting it you will be able to use a wide range of home developing chemicals to nail your ideal aesthetic.

To understand more about the details above you can check out our film guide or if you want some inspiration then head over to our page on choosing your next film.  

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.

How Does the Bundled Developing Work?

To make your analogue adventures even easier (and cheaper!) we’ve implemented the option to pre-pay for your processing when you buy your film. This means that you choose your developing and scanning options on this page, via the little tick-box above, and add everything to basket for an immediate 10% saving on all processing costs.

Your film will be dispatched in line with our usual shipping times (full details here) and you will also get an email with instructions on sending the film back to the WonderLab (with tracked shipping - on us!)

When you have shot the film - whether that takes you a day, month or year - you generate the free tracked postage label by following the simple instructions from the email, and pop it in the post with a note of your original order number. We’ll do the rest!

So buy the bundle and relax into the shooting process, knowing that you’ll get to see the final results from your photography, without having to reach for your wallet again.

Happy Shooting!

We send all parcels via TRACKED service - free in the UK for orders of film over £50.

This means that when you buy your film from us you will be emailed a tracking link at dispatch, and will be able to follow your parcel’s journey all the way to safe arrival.

Please note that it is not a signed service so you won’t need to be at home to receive your film, and our letterbox-friendly boxes fit through the vast majority of European letterboxes!

Awesome film

This is a film which does not need presentation.
Beatiful grain and very wide latitude.
Can be pushed and pulled with great results.

First roll of 120

And I made the right choice, HP films are always a safe and clear choice when needing a quality B&W film.
Testing a camera is always a scary yet exciting experience as you don't actually know until you get the development if it worked, but fortunately HP5 was there to give me plenty of leeway, I tired a pinhole camera in attempt to get some shots on a short walk, many of the shots are soft and clearly shaken but that's all my error not being confident enough. I look forward to testing another 120 camera next and this film will be joining me again.
Thanks to Wonderlab for developing & scanning!

Amazing tonality

Initially used this as a test roll for my.medium format camera but it's quickly become my go to. Doesn't break the bank and is great for all styles of photography. If you want something with more contrast try T-max

Amazing film for my old camera

This is my favourite film to use for my Ensign Ranger 120 camera, it’s always easy to use and comes out sharp and beautiful! Cannot recommend enough, such a reasonable price as well!

Still the best black and white film

Brilliant film for pushing, I decided to push this roll to 3200, I was a little worried about the detail in the image until I developed them and saw the results, brilliant film, the best black and white film going.
