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.

Classic B&W

Not too soft, not too contrasty, very forgiving in all light conditions and you can get very creative with it

Always has your back

HP5+ always has your back. Great film for anything and everything. Would prefer Ilford FP4+ for portraits however.

Rich texture, atmospheric shots

This film took some really beautiful shots, but is less consistent than other 400iso b&w films I've used.

Better than I ever could have hoped!

I've only just picked up shooting film as a hobby, and therfore didn't have high expectations regarding how my first photos would turn out, but I was totally blow away by the results of this film.
I took the above shots on a gloomy day, thick with fog, and even the photos taken in low light under the cover of trees came out well.
I'll definitely be ordering this film again and recommending it whenever I have the chance!
