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.

Latitude: The Film

I've shot this film plenty at box speed and pulled a couple rolls down to 200. It doesn't go flat, it just keeps more detail across the range. I just pushed it to 1600 and was really satisfied with the results. Based on the contrast and grain at 1600, I'd rather push this than use Delta 3200. The boxing sample is @ ISO 1600 and the other @ ISO 200.

Solid and Dependable

Ilford HP5 is one of the workhorses of Film Photography. It produces even tones throughout the range and is kind enough to beginners to allow for a couple of stops either way if you get your exposures out by more than a tad. It is at it's best when used for Street Photography, but has the capability to handle most of your needs. A great all rounder.

Best all-round B+W film stock

Simply the easiest to use, best value for money B+W film stock going. Wide exposure latitude, very sharp, good grain levels, in my opinion it's (on paper at least, as I do still prefer the vintage look of Tri-X despite saying all of this) the best b+w stock currently available. I've mostly shot it at 800 and it pushes very nicely- for a modern, clean, effective film that's also very easy to self develop you can't go wrong with HP5! Excellent for metering by eye as well, I shot a few rolls of this just guessing the exposure with very little experience and almost all the shots came out fine- more a testament to the film than to my skill for sure

My go to B & W film

I love this stuff but have never shot it at box speed - mostly use it at 800 and 1600. 800 is still sharp and detailed but nice and contrast. 1600 loses some detail but still contrast and it gets the job done in long Scottish winter nights.

Great all round film, the best Black and white film stock i have ever used by a long way. Nothing compares to HP5. Push to 800 for the best results in my opinion.
