The iconic Ilford emulsion, the slightly larger grain structure in the Ilford HP5 Plus 400 film will provide a wonderful vintage look to your photos. This 35mm black and white film is also very forgiving of wide exposure range, so you will get good results in a variety of difficult light and contrast situations.

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.

Developed it in Ilford DD:X 1:9 dilution for 15:45 minutes in 20C temperature. Really sharp! As I understand, DD:X is especially good with Ilford films, which does make sence. Great contrast and shadow detail. Would definitely recommend using these products together.
Nice versatile film with great blacks, contrast and grain. Shoots well in low light conditions,.
If you love contrast, grain and flexibility, look no further than Ilford HP5. I shot it at 640 speed and pushed +1 stop for a bit more grit, but the flexibility needed for shooting street photography. This film is very forgiving, and holds up well in most light. If you underexpose, expect some lifted grey shadows, instead of blacks. Not the sharpest B&W film, but a great place to start if you've only ever used colour C41.
A brilliant all round B&W film. It retains lots of detail and is very forgiving. Bit of a grainy film stock but it helps it give that iconic feel.
I really love this film. REALLY love it.
It has exceptional tonality and offers great lattitude, so if my exposure if off, it's easy enough to rectify.
I shoot both 35mm on my F3 and F5 and 120 on my Hasselblad 500c/m and find myself consistently pleased with the results. The grain structure is lovely!
If I had the option of only ever having one film for the rest of my life, this would certainly be it.
