Ilford HP5 Plus 400 reviews

HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great film from a great company I bought this film for the first time in February to shoot a basketball game at school. I was using a Nikon EM with a 50mm /1.8 lens. There was not a lot of light in the gymnasium. I had the aperture set to 1.8. I shot many action shots with the roll. When I got the photos back, I was stunned. They were so crisp and clear, and perfectly exposed. The contrast was excellent, and the tonal range was incredible. Best part? Barely any grain! The grain is so fine and natural looking. I would recommend this film to anyone wanting a fast speed film with very fine grain, shooting in low light, or general artistic photography. All Ilford films meet and exceed my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not bad! I'm a photography student using this film for an advanced darkroom class, where we develop our own negatives. With the exception of a single dark strip across one negative (which may well have been my error while developing) this film is beautiful. I previously have used XP-2 Super, which I prefer, but cannot use in class as we don't have the chemistry to develop it ourselves. Understanding that the XP-2 is color film, we only printed in black and white. Either way, this film is quite good for the price. I've had difficulty getting the contrast level I like out of it without destroying the detail, however, but I'll still buy it again and again as long as I need to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Exposure Latitude I just got back into B&W Developing after 35 years. Been experimenting with Holga cameras which can be somewhat challenging exposure wise. However, the Ilford HP5 has some great exposure latitude to cover up over and under exposure either caused by myself or in the film developing process. Used caffenol-c on my first roll which turned out absolutely great with some slight underexposures which were easily corrected in GIMP. I am pretty sure with additional developing time it would be right on the money. Great film, not too contrasty and overall a pleasure to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Bang for the Buck..see for yourself 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 :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement Tri-X The perfect high-speed film for the post-Tri-X era. Pushable, grainy, contrasty, forgiving. Just use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go-to Black and White film I would rate this ten stars if I could. It's got great fine grain, tons of latitude, and is equally beautiful developed in D76 to Caffenol. The negatives have low-curl, dry quickly, and have nice contrast. I know if I'm in a dark situation, I can still shoot box speed and usually no push processing necessary. Just all-around great film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How Great Thou Art Back in the late 70's I was shooting a lot of K64 and wanted to try some B&W file. Tri-X was the obvious choice at the time but I wanted to try Ilford's HP-5. I used mostly ID-11 Plus as it was called then and Rodinal. I liked the sharpness and tonal range with Rodinal although the grain was more apparent due to the lack of silver solvents in the developer. Fast forward to 2015. I had been away from the dark room for some years and got back into B&W again. I had read of a dilution with HC-110 that did wonders with HP-5 and decided to try it. I rated the film at ASA 250 due to the contrasy day I was shooting in and developed the film in HC-110, dilution H for 10 minutes with intermittent agitation. I was more than pleased with the results how it didn't burn out the highlights nor muddy or block up the shadows. the sharpness for a 400 box speed film was short of superb. I think I've found my 400 film in HP-5 and plan on ordering more. It did well in the 70's and even better now. Kudos to Ilford.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great film Not only is the film great, I got free expedited shipping on my order since it was over $! I was really pleased with that. Furthermore, it only took 5 days to arrive, just in time for my photography class. Film develops well and produces some great pictures!
