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.

This film is always given to students at our workshops - it is easy to use and even when it all goes drastically wrong you still get something half decent out of it. I usually use it with a Mamiya 645 and it is a pleasure to load, unload, process and print from. As you can see from my examples I overexposed my photographs and they still came out looking alright. Definitely a good one to practice and experiment with.
Top quality, classic and flexible film. Used in my 70 year old agfa folding camera.
HP5 is my go to film when I need something flexible - always have a few rolls in my bag.
The film is very versatile and can be pushed or pulled to fit the prevailing situation. Grain is very pleasing and can be manipulated accordingly - if you want to really accentuate it try pushing it 2 or more stops.
It is also very forgining when it comes to exposure so really good to beginners and pros alike.
In my opinion, this is the best 120 black and white film on the market. It shoots amazing well in all lighting situations and can be pushed up to 1600/3200 without losing much detail either!
Develops super well with ilford chemistry such as Ilfosol 3 or DD-X. Negatives dry amazingly flat also, which helps massively with scanning or using in the darkroom.
I’ll be leaving reviews throughout the website with pictures for full frame scans, so if you’re like me who loves to see the entire image and border, you can see what the results will be like.
Always been pleased with the results of this film. I feel it has the right balance of grain and contrast to give consistently good images from a wide array of subject matter. It's also one of the more forgiving films giving you a lot of latitude and responding well to pushing.
