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 have very much enjoyed shooting with this film. As a beginner I do not have much technical vocabulary to be able to describe but I have found that it works well in both low level and daylight. It is great for both portraits and landscapes.
As a beginner I can’t delve into the technical details of this film, however it has performed well over a variety of shooting situations from indoors, low light and daytime. I have enjoyed shooting this film due to the reliable results.
This is the perfect all rounder. It does everything and it does it rather well. Indoors, outdoors, bright lights or fading evening light, HP5+ 400 has the cojones to take them all on. If a certain brand of lager made black and white photographic film, it would make this one... probably. Ilford HP5+ 400 has enough exposure latitude to forgive some pretty horrendous mistakes, and trust me, I've made a few. For that reason alone it is without doubt the best film to give to a total novice at Film Photography.
I have used this film in a wide range of scenarios and conditions and it handled them all. You can shoot HP5+ 400 at any speed between 50 - 1600 and it will give you useable images. I forgot to reset my film speed one day and shot HP5 at 200 with no problem at all. The attached photo was taken on a wet Tuesday in Wigan.

I'm not going to write a terribly detailed review, to be honest, my skill levels don't really stretch to it ! So I won't tell you about grain or contrast or anything like that, simply that I shot this film on a camera I'd never used before, metered with a light meter I'd never used before, and developed if myself - the first time ever - and it worked. This for me, makes this film perfect, it seems to be astonishingly tolerant of me !
HP5 was the first film I used when getting into film photography. It’s a great all rounder, really easy to shoot with and easy to develop.
Love how it captures great details and great contrasting shadows.
