        I am a student and needed 4x5 film quickly, since nowhere in my area had any in stock, I went online and ordered from B&H. I ordered Ilford HP5 Plus 4x5 b/w film because of the quality and the end results when I am printing my photos. My film was delivered the next day and I thought AMAZING! I will be ordering from B&H from that day forward.

        As a college student in a strictly analog undergrad program, I take a lot of photos and need a reliable product. This one does what I need it to do. I process it myself in my school's darkroom and it is reliable and high quality. No doubt I'll be buying more pretty soon since there's always more room to make that portfolio better.

                  Shooting 4x5 B&W portraits with HP5+ is a joy as the film has an excellent tonal response, and good exposure latitude. I like to expose it at ISO 200(over expose 1 stop) when shooting people. HP5+ also scans well for digital output.
                  Useful in many different developers.

                  The beauty of large format

                        I am a college student and I was enrolled in a Large Format Photography course this semester (Fall12) in which I used this film. The film worked beautifully for me. I had little very few problems and what problems I did have occurred due to my own ineptness. Also, the packaging of the product was very convenient. It was a box of one hundred sheets separated into four bags. So I felt more comfortable with taking them out when loading film because I was able to keep most of the film in the box and completely protected. It also allowed me to keep a better idea of how much film I had and when I would need to order more. Another thing I appreciated was the price. I did shop around and this was the best price and no shipping or handling available (which was a bonus).

                          This is my go-to film for all formats up to 8x10. Great latitude, very fine grain - especially for 400ISO film - and very easy to work with. I occasionally shoot FP4+, but there is so little discernable difference in grain and other characteristics that I typically choose the faster HP5+.

                            Used for high contrast landscapes and industrial sites requiring high resolution of details and sharp deliniation of shadows in bright sun light. Lots of info about developing times and temperatures for wide range of available darkromm chemicals. Emulsion is hard enough to with stand normal handling.

                                  This film is fast enough for English light levels, never varies and doesn't seem to age noticeably- as you'd expect from a rather high-priced, pedigree product.

                                      Ansel Adams taught that a photographer should use one type of film and know it very well.
                                      I bought 3 boxes of HP5 sheets to learn on.

                                      This is a very versatile film that pushes and pulls well. And also has a lot of allowances for beginning photographers. It is very adaptable to many situtations.

                                        Great film that retains all the information you would expect out of a 4x5 image. Very consistent and reliable. Scans very well. But you have to be careful with it as it scratches very easily.

                                        Great price and organized packaging for safe handling. It's great to split a pack with a classmate or friend if you're short on cash.

                                          Great all around 400 speed film. I use rodinal as my primary developer, and it gives good sharpness and tonality. Handles good contrast range. 4x5 in rodinal will make excellent, tight 20x24 print. Also shoot 5x7 sheet for ones that are going up to 40"x56".

                                            HP5 is one of the best films I've ever shot, and as a photo student I've shot a lot of them. Developed in PMK Pyro or Pyrocat HD this film yields excellent speed and image quality.

                                              Usually use 35mm delta, started shooting 4 by 5 tried HP5 and am happy with it so far very similar to the delta as far as I can tell.

                                                I chose this film as a good "easy" film to begin learning the 4x5 view camera. I am very impressed with the quality and tonal range of what I've shot so far. The value of this film versus higher-priced kodak film is great!
