The grain on this film is somewhere right smack dab in the middle of the spectrum. Not super fine, yet not super chunky. The contrast is fantastic, with bright whites and deep blacks. When used in a Nikon F with a very small on camera flash, this film absolutely exceeded my expectations in terms of sharpness and quality. Great job Ilford!

Learn it and stick with it

I've used HP5+ over the decades for many applications, in 35mm, 120, and 4x5. It grows with you. It served me well when I was starting out, doing largely street work. The high speed meant I had the best chance of freezing action and having good depth of field. Souping it in D-76 was forgiving before I'd gained some finesse in my darkroom technique. The grain is of course apparent there. These days I shoot it in medium and large format for its ultra-long tonal scale. My particular pyro development scheme means grain is functionally nonexistent and I end up with scans that are the perfect basis for digital finishing. There are other films I shoot plenty of but if I could only have one it would be HP5+. A thing that's lovely with this, as with any other Ilford film really, is that you can bet that as long as there's a market for B&W film, this stock will be in production. I love it.

Great film, if speed counts!

Super tonality, good sharpness, and of course, speed, when it counts. You can push it for more!

question

how many exposures are there in this film?
Asked by: Anonymous
The number of exposures you can get from a roll of 120 film will depend on the format of the camera you are using. If your camera is 6 x 4.5, there are 15 or 16 exposures; 6 x 6 cameras will get 12/13 exposures, 6 x 7 cameras get 10 exposures, 6 x 8 cameras will get 9 exposures, and so forth.

What is the total thickness of the 70mm film? ...

What is the total thickness of the 70mm film? (emulsion + base). Does "layer" thickness listed in the film specs indicate total thickness? I understand that there is no backing paper on this film. The 70mm film is not listed on the Ilford website. Thanks.
Asked by: PAUL
Yes the layer thickness listed here would indicate the total thickness.
