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.

I've used HP5 for a number of years and it never fails to impress. Versatile and great tonal range, perfect for a range of shooting conditions.
HP5 is an incredibly versitile film. It has a huge amount give for bad exposure and you can edit it forever and create the look you want. Personally though, this is it's downfall. I like a film with a personality and this is not that. HP5 is a blank canvas for you to do whatever you want with and for that, it's amazing.
I know everyone says its a great all round film, and it has been around forever, but I recently found a roll of this that I shot back in about 1996 been stored in my dads uninsulated loft all this time, and developed at normal times, and still came out with maybe not perfect, but good enough negatives for a 30 year old roll of film
truly the king of black and white filmstocks, whether shot at box speed or pushed 2 stops.
Pushing it a stop to 800 lumps up the contrast and the grain but still quite sharp.
I kind of like this rough and ready look and now have a growing list of things I want to try it out on for yet another project.
Hat tip to the Wondies for another cracking set of scans.
