Ilford HP5 Plus 400 Reviews

HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures, 50 Pack) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 424.
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 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 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.

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.

question

Is this the bricks of 10 packaging or is this really MFR # 1574616 (as the description says) which are 50 FOIL-WRAPPED films? That does make a difference to me traveling... Thanks!

the bricks of 10 are not foil wrapped. the film rolls are in plastic canisters.

question

What is the expiry date for the films in the Ilford HP5+ 50-roll pack?
Asked by: Bezalel B.
The bricks I recently received (10/16) are dated April 2020, for a 3.5 year lead time. Probably can't count on that always being the case - could be more or less - but my fairly regular purchases have always had lead times measured in years, definitely not months! (It's b+w, after all.)

question

What is the dimension of the packaging (length, width, height) of this 50 roll pack?
Asked by: Anonymous
B&H may call it a 50 roll pack but in my experience, it's nothing of the sort - it's been years since B&H actually sent me the old white cardboard box full of foil wrapped bare rolls without the normal individual box and plastic canister. What I've actually got every time I've ordered in recent years is simply 50 of the standard boxed rolls factory packaged in 5 standard cellophane wrapped bricks of 10 rolls.Dimensions of the 10 roll brick is 19 cm x 8 cm x 6cm - the dimensions of 5 of those will depend on how B&H's shipping department stacks them in the box.B&H's bulk discounts are a bit of a joke as there's no saving in buying 1 roll or 50 rolls - it's exactly the same price so why bother? There are NO bulk discounts so I buy HP5 135-36 elsewhere..
