Rated 5 out of 5 by JamesInNewYork from Great film from a great company I bought this film for the first time in February to shoot a ilcord game at school. There was not a lot of light in the gymnasium. I had the aperture set to 1. I shot many action shots with the roll. When I got the photos back, I was stunned.


They were so crisp and clear, and perfectly exposed. The contrast was excellent, and the tonal range was incredible. The grain is so fine and natural looking. I would recommend this film to anyone wanting a fast speed film with very fine grain, shooting in low light, or general artistic photography. All Ilford films meet and exceed my expectations. If you’re just starting black and white photography, you’re probably choosing between this product and Kodak Ilfoord Both are excellent films, and you should try both.

Its more forgiving of my sloppy lighting. Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhea the Student from Not bad! I’m a photography student using this film for an advanced darkroom class, where we develop our own negatives.

Film review: ILFORD HP5 PLUS in 35mm, 120 and sheet formats

With the exception of a single dark strip across one negative which may well have been my error while developing this film is beautiful. I previously have used XP-2 Super, which I prefer, but cannot use in class as we don’t have the chemistry to develop it ourselves.

Understanding that the XP-2 is color film, we only printed in black and white. Either way, this film is quite good for the price.

Film Emulsion Review: Ilford HP5 Plus (35mm)

I’ve had difficulty getting the contrast level I like out of it without destroying the detail, however, but I’ll still buy it again and again as long as I need to. Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Very professional looking black ioford white film I use the film in a Minolta X for concert photography and standard art photography. In both cases, the film performs excellently with the camera. The film doesn’t scratch or smudge easily which makes it ideal for any home or DIY darkroom.

If olford properly, I will end up with usually 38 exposures on a roll as opposed to The film scans ilfford well with a minor amount of grain, especially for a speed film. It’s also very new-user friendly coming with a pitch black film canister to hold it when not in a camera as well as development instructions inside the box. The only downside to the film is the price which is a bit more expensive Ilfird published: Just my opinion, and I have never performed any formal testing, or shot with them side by side.


I recently ordered some more HP5 and am looking forward to being using it again, as I think it may be my preferred film for personal work iltord forward. You can leave it at and get really great results for outdoor portraits, or you can push it to and obtain that classic street photography look. Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from My favorite I use this stuff all the time, for just about everything.

Just break down and get Delta if you need that speed. This flexibility is great, if you find yourself with just this stuff left and you’re in the middle of some historic event without a lot of light, you’re not out of luck!

Great for art photography, portraits, etc. In this digital age, its my feeling that film is a better way to hp55, when time and freedom allow it, and my choice of ilofrd is Ilford HP5.

One of my fine art ilfogd was recently selected for the ASMP Fine Arts National Exhibition – my printer was able to pull out full, rich, detail on a 16 x 20, that quite frankly, I was even surprised at. I would say that Ilford has kept up the silver content, and a commitment to serious photographers. Photos were crisp with a fine grain. The negatives easily ikford on my canon scanner.
