                    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 :-)

                                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.

                                  Comments about Ilford HP5 Plus 135-24 Black & White Print Film (ISO-400):

                                  This film is spot on for black and white users. It's not a gray scale, but a true black, and white.
                                  I like Ilfords pricing, and as far as I can tell it's among the best films around.

                                    This film is my go to B&W film. It is great in lower lit conditions, while still maintain its usefulness in other lighting conditions. I did notice a decent amount of grain in the prints of this film.

                                      So, you're probably in Photo 1 at your college right? There's a reason your instructor recommended you to get this film. It is stood the test of time and THOUSANDS of students. Buy it from B&H in bulk at the beginning of the semester and get the best deal.

                                      Keep shooting it after your done with that photo class!

                                      Great film.

                                      It is an excellent film for black and white photography at a reasonably price product.

                                          Good film. Not as much contrast as tri x though.
