      Comments about Ilford HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures):

      I have decided to run through a roll of HP5+ before I commit to bulk loading. I am happen with the way this film handles processing, doesn't curl as much as Tri-x after processing. With that said, I have found the the images created feels a little flat, and not as contrasty as tri-x, but grain was definitely smaller. I developed the roll using Ilfosol 3(1:9) and the other D76 (stock). Overall, Good film that scans well

      Comments about Ilford HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures):

      Not only is the film great, I got free expedited shipping on my order since it was over $! I was really pleased with that. Furthermore, it only took 5 days to arrive, just in time for my photography class. Film develops well and produces some great pictures!

        Comments about Ilford HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures):

        I'm a photography student using this film for an advanced darkroom class, where we develop our own negatives. 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. 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.

                              I had not shot film for a few years and was a bit apprehensive in buying again. I went back to college to brush up on some of my skills and keep my skills sharp. I bought this for the Photography class I enrolled to take. Film was provided but I knew I would need more and it was convenient to have my own on hand. I love this film!! It produced quality shots, shows crisp clean details and is fairly simple to develop. All-around one of the best films I have tried so far. Although I use digital I still like my film. It had encouraged me to to start a darkroom again since making some changes in my life in the past few years. It has also sparked interest with my young adult :-)

                                          HP5 has great flexibility, develops with forgiving range and produces great tonal range and consistent results in a variety of lighting scenarios (400 speed)

                                          Ilford is the only thing I use for my analog camera. Great contrast! It is the best!

                                          I have been using Kodak 400 film, and even though this Ilford is a little bit cheaper I can't tell much difference. The film is a little more purple after it's developed.
