            Comments about Ilford HP5 Plus 120 Black & White Print Film (ISO-400):

            I used this film with an old Ansco-Shur Shot Jr. camera that I received as a gift. I was very pleased with the quality of the images, no problems with the film picking up light at all. I do wish that there were more exposures, the roll I bought had just 9 (that's how it goes with 120 film I guess). Keep in mind I'm very new to film, but I was happy with this (and the price) and will likely buy it again. Good if you've gotten some neat old cameras and want to test them out without breaking the bank.

                        I avoided this film during my photo class due to expense. Fuji's neopan was more economical at the time and I really didnt know much about B/W film. It's a great film. I have no regrets buying it for the Holga (120) even though I only got 1/2 the roll exposed right (my fault first time with a meterless camera). Perfect results.

                            Ilford has been making great film for years. Typically I develop this film with Kodak HC-110 at 24degrees celsius. with a one stop overexposure and one stop pull and it produces excellent tonal range for both scanning and printing! Produces consistent results from 120rolls and sheet film!

                                  This is great 120mm film! Images are very crisp, with little to no grain. Works great under most lighting situations If you love working with medium format, this is the film for you.

                                    I just cannot get enough of this film. The grain is sexy. It's great for just about anything involving people. You can push it to 3200 and still have usable images if you're creative. I just LOVE it.

                                      This is a great film at a great price. We bought it for my daughter to use in a plastic camera. She will be able to develop it herself.
