A film for all seasons

Regardless of how dull or how bright it is out there, HP5 can cope with it. Don't be afraid to push or pull HP5, it always gets the job done.
This time I shot the film at box speed, but in quite varied problem!

Basically the only film I shoot

This is a film you really cant go wrong with. Even if you underexpose it, it somehow still comes out fairly consistently even if you don't push your development.
Sample shots provided were developed with Caffenol and shot in less than ideal conditions which goes to show you really can mess around with this film and get very usable results

What can I say? It's HP5!

It's like that little black dress or black levi 501 jeans. You can wear them anywhere, weddings or funerals, and just accessorize appropriately. HP5+ is just a brilliant all rounder and my default film in 35mm, 120 and 4x5. I tend to pull it a stop (rate at 200) and developer in D23 but over the years I've stewed it in all sorts of developer. Basically you can abuse it quite a bit and get useable negatives.

Samples are from weird cameras I'm trying out as usual: An Ilford Envoy Wide Angle from the 1950s (6x9) and a Tomiyama 6x17.

Downside is that it isn't the finest grain or sharpest film. If you need that go with Delta 400 or 100.

(Maybe not the 501s at your own wedding.)

Good - but I think I prefer Tri-X

I'd had a roll of this sitting on the shelf and finally used it on a rather gloomy day (with occasional rain), as the 400 speed meant the lower light levels wouldn't be a problem.
The results are fine- but (and I don't know why), I think I prefer my experience of Tri-X 400.
Having said that, I've seen rolls of this in a nearby branch of Boots, with the Kodak film notable by omission. I'd certainly use this again in the absence of my preferred stock.

Great All Round Performer

HP5 get's the job done every time. These photos were shot on my most challenging photo walk of 2024 so far, and it's only April. HP5 got the job done in my 1930's Balda Baldax 6x4.5 medium format folding camera.
