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.

Lovely contrast and depth. Easy to shoot on-the-go.
I’ve used HP5 forever and it’s still one of the best films around! You can pull or push it as required but I still find the box speed gives the best results for me! The grain is tight and crisp but doesn’t detract on larger prints. I would advise a little care when processing and try not to cool it too quick when washing bring the temperature down gradually! I find I get the best results with Ilford developers particularly ilford DDX but that’s just my opinion it’s all about your choice! I’ve heard comments that it’s too grainy but again personal choice and I embrace it! Look at some of the greatest film images of the past most of them have grain but it somehow it enhances them! Just have fun shooting it!
The most reliable all round black and white film on the market. THE perfect grain structure? Good value for money, easy to develop and responds well to push/pull processing. The perfect film for beginners and professionals alike.
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!
