Ilford HP5 Plus is the best-selling black-and-white 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.

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.

A good all-rounder

Personally I'm not a huge fan of HP5+, as I've found the look of other B+W films more to my taste, but there's no denying that this is a very capable film stock that deserves its reputation. It's very versatile, producing good results in all sorts of lighting conditions and the lower contrast does admittedly make it easier to work with in post. Now that I've started developing my own film I've also found it to be one of the easier films to get onto my developing reels and to lay flat in my scanner - things that I haven't always found easy with some of my "preferred" B+W film stocks.
