Everything that I expected. Photos were crisp with a fine grain. The negatives easily scanned on my canon scanner.

My first choice of film

This product works very well with the urban photojournalism shots that I take. It is very consistent making it very easy to print most shots that are taken with this film.

        This film is really great, it doesn't look muddy, the contrast is good, and the exposure latitude is really big! I do get some grain at times, but it's not too much to be anoying.

          I like to have this film on hand or in my camera (AE-1) when inspiration or opportunity arises. It is versatile, produces sharp images and a great value for a 36 roll.

            Great Film at a Great Price

            By Mike Mc

            from Chicago, IL

            Comments about Ilford HP5 Plus 35mm Black and White Negative Film (36 Exposures):

            Used a roll within my Voigtlander Bessa, and I'm really pleased with the results. Developed at home in Ilford DD-X...and it's fantastic. Nice dark/contrasty blacks, with surpringly bright whites...but no loss of details in shadows or highlights. And the grain, to me, is really pleasant. Additionally, if you nail the exposure, you'll get really tight grain.

            I'm sold on Ilford and their line of products. Highly recommend.
