Ilford HP5 Plus is the best-selling black-and-white 120 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 - particularly in medium format.
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.
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 solid, dependable film type that produced lovely clean crisp black and white images.
Excellent latitude and fine grain, especially in ID-11 or Perceptol.
This film worked well both indoors and outdoors in slight shade, though I will mention I did use quite a slow shutter speed. Probably wouldn’t work well in very low light but was great for everything else. Would recommend for beginners. Ilford never disappoints <3
