Ilford HP5 Plus 400 Reviews

Its a classic you need to have a few stocked up

Solid 400 film stock you can not go wrong. Its grainy but if you don't like grain why do you shoot film? Primarily use in my point and shoots and the flexibility of the film pairs perfectly with the inconsistent lighting and metering from 90s film camera. Its always good to have some around you never know when you are gonna need a new roll.

I have shot Ilford HP5 for the past couple of years. It has given me great results. I have grown as a photographer while using HP5 but have not lost interest or outgrown its potential. There are finer grained films but there is something about the timeless grainy look of HP5 that is really enjoy.

ILFORD well known film technology embedded HP5 + with wider range capabilities. I used it from recent B&H purchase for the shots with complex exposure scheme like the first photo in my photo journal "Walking with a flash " with is a great success after published, reaching 7.6k views.

Very nice base, lays flat when dry. Exceptional latitude. Wonderful tonal range when exposed and developed properly. I like to develop in Ilfotec DD-X but I have had great results in all the developers I use.

Can this film be processed in a red lit dark room?
Asked by: Chris
Well you have to take the film out in complete darkness and get it into into your film developer tank. Once the film is developed you can of course have it in your red light lit darkroom, but I'm pretty sure you can't take the undeveloped film out in red, or any other, light.

Would this film be suitable for shooting in an aquarium?
Asked by: Tiana
Most public aquariums are quite dark in most areas. HP5+ has excellent abilities to push process the film which allows you to shoot at ISO ratings up around 1600 ISO without introducing excessive grain. Assuming you are not shooting with a flash, 1600 ISO should give you the ability to shoot inside most aquarium's moderately lit areas. Just remember to tell your processing lab what speed you shot the film at so they can push it properly for you or if you are processing the film yourself, be sure to check the guidelines on the Massive Development Chart for HP5+. Areas that are usually much darker like where they usually have the jellyfish lit with special colored lights are still going to be the areas you would be better off shooting with a DSLR or mirrorless with better low light performance than film will give you.

If I stop a roll in the middle ( before I finish taking all of the shots) how can I reload/reinsert it
Asked by: Esti
Although not very accurate you can rewind, carefully and reload the same roll. For example, if 10 photos are remaining to finish the roll and the marker is at 26, you must release the advance mechanism and rewind the film, taking care of not pull the tip of the film into the cartridge. Just pay attention of the moment the film is released from the collection reel, in addition, the film becomes harder to curl when the tip reaches the cartridge, because of the fold made when the film was loaded on the reel of the camera. When you want to reload the film, try to fit the pickup spool end to the already folded part and advance photo by photo, taking care to cover the objective avoiding double exposure. Just in case, I do recommend jumping one more frame before exposing, in this case the marker should be at 27. From this point ahead, the camera operation is normal. Simple like that, no magic.

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.
