Ilford HP5 Plus 400 reviews

HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistency across 120 and 135 I love the tonal range and speed of Ilford HP5+. It's fast enough, I rate it at EI320, for the dreary weather of the Pacific Northwest winters, and gives me enough speed for shooting the streets of NYC.� I've chosen HP5+ for both formats (120 and 135) because they have the same development times which allows me to throw them both in the same development tank. When you shoot a lot of film, with multiple formats, this really speeds up the development process.� Love the quality too. So many other films don't have frame numbers, have frame numbers but in the actual frame of your photo, have a blue tint, and excessive curl. HP5+ is my go to film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You know what to expect, thankfully If you have used Ilford products before, then you are familiar with their quality and packaging, this film is no different. It is a go-to, no-brainer stock. This film doesn't need my praise and endorsement - you already know that you're going to get with Ilford; one of the last manufacturers committed to the exacting demands of anyone still shooting film. We shoot film because we want to, not out of necessity. Ilford knows that this bar is set dangerously high - their quality cannot waiver or vary from batch to batch, otherwise we would all switch to digital.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from mixed feelings I'm a big Ilford film nut, and love their stuff. I mostly use large format sheet film, and huge ULF rolls. This was my first time with their 35mm HP5+, although I've used HP5+ in their other films for years. Everything went as usual with respect to exposure, etc., except the base seems to have a purple cast, compared to all my other films that are clear. Fresh fixer, and fixed long enough, yes, I'm aware of all that, and still the purple exists. Maybe I got a bad batch, but it surely isn't making me want to try another $ roll to find out. Never had any issues with any of their HP5, FP4, or delta films. 8x10, 4x5, 120, or 8x100' rolls. This one is strange.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from best film for bulk loading bulk loading is the best way to save money with film. after the initial investment of the canisters and loader, the film is the only thing you'll have to buy and 100 feet of it can go a long way. HP5 has proven to be the bast film for me to get. ilford makes excelent film, and at iso 400 its extremely usable (indoor and outdoor, low light etc.) the price for this film is one of the best parts. I've bought 100ft rolls of other film, for less and for more then this. after hundreds of negatives i can definitely say this is the best bw for all around use. at least for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would Definitely buy again I am a student taking a bw photo class and enjoy photography as a hobby. Rolling my own film is really fun and it can save money depending on how you roll your film. I tend to sometimes cut it at 5 to 10 shots because i only have time to shoot that much or i just really wanna develop them to see the results, if you do the math you will waste at least 1 and a half of a negative on each roll you make, so the longer the rolls, the more money you save. (install film in complete darkness to save the first two negatives, i think the max is 38-40 depending on the size of the reel you use for development) The only thing i don't like about this is that there is no way for you to tell how many negatives you have rolled, so i just use an old exposed/developed roll of film as reference to measure the exact amount of film needed in a roll, but would be nice if they devised a method to do so without using a machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from never disappointed It's an accurate film which I've used for many years. The most attractive points is its unique grain, grainy but beautiful. Other characters I like most is the push ability, perfect push to 800 or 1600, if it's processed properly, even hard to find the difference with the one exposed as 400. It's always easy to process, and it's so comfortable with almost all the popular developers. Especially for the beginner, it really has a great tolerance to the temperature, water conditions and etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you could only have one film.... I have used this film for over thirty years, with the old HP5 in the late 1970's. I also use other films but when in doubt this is as fail safe as it gets. You cannot go wrong with this film in any camera. All situations are covered from careful fine art to hit or miss street photography with this film's image quality, subtle gray scale, and plenty of latitude for exposure error. Also pushes nicely to 1600 in Ilford Microphen if I get into a tough spot. If you are venturing into the photographic unknown this is the film to use. Kodak Tri-X also has the same versatility but I don't care for its rather dreary tonal scale that makes everything look like raw war footage or whatnot. Nor do I care for Kodak's disregard for it's customers in recent decades which is what made me try Ilford in the first place. It is a good thing I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Stock! I decided I wanted to try another film stock. This truely is a great black & white film, it has it's own character and signature; it is very affordable for bulk loading. The shadows open up nicely at box speed and the grain is classic. I normally shoot TRI-X400 which I love; however now I have another film stock for my portfolios, I highly recommend it for any photographer that enjoys different stocks aside from the old faithful we grew up with and love - let's keep using these beautiful stocks so that chemical photography lives on!
