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.

Learning to see light with HP5 Plus

My first roll of B&W ever. This is an amazing film; grain and contrast are all exactly how I imagined. Forgiving to the beginner with good exposure latitude. I am delighted with my shots and have ordered 4 more rolls!

Go to B&W film!!

I love the grain and contrast of this film, it copes really well with the different lighting conditions that I put it up against. It is a great all rounder film perfect for street photography.

I’ve been using HP5 and now HP5+ for as long as I’ve been making photographs and it has proved consistently reliable across the decades. I love experimenting and trying out new/different film stocks but always have HP5+ in both 120 and 35mm in my bag. It’s my most-used individual film stock in both formats.

Favourite B&W film!!

This film is amazing, the grain structure is great and the contrast is beautiful, this film is great at 400 ISO but can rakish be pushed +2 or even +3!

Perfect for: Great All-Rounder, Street Photography, Low light/Night
A really good film.

This is a really solid film - nice grain structure and copes well with different lighting situations. I found the results sharp and detailed whilst retaining the analog feel and warmth. I shot an entire reel in one session doing some night photos around Birmingham and I'm really pleased with the results. Once I work my way through the box of film sat in my fridge I will order this one again for sure.
