Ilford HP5 Plus 400 overview

  • 1Description

Ilford's HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film is a traditional and versatile panchromatic film designed for general use in a wide variety of shooting conditions. Exhibiting notably wide exposure latitude, this film responds well to use in mixed and difficult lighting and provides medium contrast for greater overall control. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° when developed in standard black and white chemistry, and responds well to push processing. HP5 Plus is a flexible film type that is ideally suited for use in general photographic applications in an array of different lighting conditions.

This item is one 24-exposure roll of 35mm film and is supplied in a DX-coded cassette.

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 417.
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 Nice Latitude I love Ilford HP5+ 400! If you're just starting black and white photography, you're probably choosing between this product and Kodak Tri-X 400. Both are excellent films, and you should try both. I enjoy HP5+ because it seems to have greater exposure latitude. Its more forgiving of my sloppy lighting. If you want higher contrast, I'd recommend Kodak Tri-X over Ilford HP5+ 400.

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 Very professional looking black and white film I use the film in a Minolta X-700 for concert photography and standard art photography. In both cases, the film performs excellently with the camera. The film doesn't scratch or smudge easily which makes it ideal for any home or DIY darkroom. If loaded properly, I will end up with usually 38 exposures on a roll as opposed to 36.The film scans very well with a minor amount of grain, especially for a 400 speed film. It's also very new-user friendly coming with a pitch black film canister to hold it when not in a camera as well as development instructions inside the box. The only downside to the film is the price which is a bit more expensive

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic film I shot HP5 exclusively before I switched to Tri-X around a year ago. To my eyes, and I normally push my B&W film at least one stop, I found that Tri-x perhaps remained a little sharper, but HP5's rendering is more of the classic black and white look. Just my opinion, and I have never performed any formal testing, or shot with them side by side. I recently ordered some more HP5 and am looking forward to being using it again, as I think it may be my preferred film for personal work moving forward. This is a wonderful film for anyone interested in B&W film photography, and the uses/results for this film are endless. You can leave it at 400 and get really great results for outdoor portraits, or you can push it to 1600 and obtain that classic street photography look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite I use this stuff all the time, for just about everything. IMHO, it pushes to 1600 very well, better than TMAX 400, but not to 3200. Just break down and get Delta3200 if you need that speed. This flexibility is great, if you find yourself with just this stuff left and you're in the middle of some historic event without a lot of light, you're not out of luck! I think Fuji Neopan 1600 looks a little better at 1600, but the tonal range of HP5 is very pleasing and 'artistic', IMHO. Great for art photography, portraits, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HP5 Quality Film HP5 is a sensitive black and white film that still delivers the tonal range I'm after when shooting with my LEICA M6. In this digital age, its my feeling that film is a better way to go, when time and freedom allow it, and my choice of late is Ilford HP5. One of my fine art photographs was recently selected for the ASMP Fine Arts National Exhibition - my printer was able to pull out full, rich, detail on a 16 x 20, that quite frankly, I was even surprised at. I would say that Ilford has kept up the silver content, and a commitment to serious photographers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supurb B&W Everything that I expected. Photos were crisp with a fine grain. The negatives easily scanned on my canon scanner.
