          I use HP5+ in a Pentax 67ii and a Rolleiflex TLR for handheld work. I use my negatives for darkroom printing and also scan them. The tones are wonderful and the film is always consistent. I expose at ISO 320 to get good shadow detail in the final darkroom prints. I use Ilfotec HC (same as Kodak HC-110) for development.

            Comments about Ilford HP5 Plus 120 Black and White Negative Film:

            I used this film in my Holga Camera. The depth is amazing and makes for interesting photos. The first time I used this film in my Holga I didn't wind it up tightly enough and lost most of my shots due to light leaks. The second time using this film, I took special care to wind properly and had amazing results. The price point is great and an excellent value.

              Great film, easy to work with. Shoot lots of HP5 in all sizes from 35mm to 8x10. It is also my standard for students to begin working with. Dynamic, easy to work with and reliable.

                I use HP5 Plus in a variety of 120 cameras. The film delivers sharp, fine-grained images and allows me to work with cameras hand-held. I develop in HC110 or D76 and print both in the darkroom and electronically.

                  I have 2 medium format cameras a hasselblad 500cm and a Bronica ETRSI and the film performs great on both cameras. the sharpness and contrast it produces is perfect. I mainly use it for black and white architecture photography and the occasional portraits and it does not disappoint!

                                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!
