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.

Very forgiving film in overcast conditions.

I shot this film on a Zenit-E really to test the camera and it’s light meter. I was really pleased with the results the film is very forgiving. Most of the scenes I shot three times, one on the light meter recommended aperture then one a stop above and one below and honestly I cannot tell the difference so I feel like you can really stretch this film and have useable images.

It was also a very overcast day that was threatening heavy rain and the film handled it very well. I was not having to go to the limits or aperture or shutter speed so had latitude to vary the settings.

Excellent and highly capable B&W film

HP5+ is a film which is easy to shoot, and yet has an extreme amount of flexibility allowing you to experiment with pulling, pushing, filters, development chems and techniques while producing breath-taking results.

Amazing first experience with B&W film

This was my first ever B&W film. Not many interesting photos, mainly playing with filters, but I got a couple of amazing, dreamy-looking shots.
Needless to say, I already have another HP5 film loaded into the camera!

Marvellous Film

HP4+ is an excellent fast film. It develops beautifully in Microphen and gives a fine fully toned result. It lacks the harsh grittiness of Trixie-X and maintains a smooth rendition of subject matter. I always keep a roll of this film in my bag as it can be used when lighting conditions deteriorate but still works very well if the light improves when its extra speed can be contained by using a yellow or orange filter. having it available in 24 exposure lengths makes handling in the darkroom much easier: it does not trail onto the floor when unloading it from the developing tank!
