Exquisite and reliable combination. Hard to find much better than this. Xtol also good with it. Examples shown contact printed as cyanotypes using B&H chemistry.

The only 8x10 film I buy anymore.

For years I shot Kodak Tri-x film. After they started packaging only 10 sheets to a box I said forget you Kodak. Ilford is cheaper and with 25 sheets to a box much more convenient.

So I got the pleasure of purchasing this in person in NY store front. Amazing place awesome staff super friendly!!! If you ever can stop by. As for the film I took total of 10 shots so far and well for being that big I guess I was expecting some wider contrast on it. But for that Being an amateur I’ve learned use a ilford delta 100 for really sharp images. It’s a good all around general purpose film very forgiving. Easy to load in holders and did fine during tray development. I’d continue using it for all formats.

Fantastic Film

Ilford HP5 8x10 film never disappoints. ISO 400 allows for a wide range of apertures/shutter speeds, and lighting conditions. Highly recommend.

Great service and a great product.

Unfortunately, we do not have access to our inventory since our warehouses are in a different location, however, any film that was within 6-months of its expiration date would be sold as short dated and listed as such on our site. All other film will be at least 6 months out from its expiration date. The March 2013 date in the product photo on the webpage is simply for illustrative purposes and does not reflect the date of all of the film that is available.

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.

question

Does this film have a expiration date ?
Asked by: Anonymous
B&H buys and sells film in bulk. In general we regularly maintain fresh film stock. All of our film is at least 6 months from expiration (typically much longer). Anytime film stock is less than 6 months from expiration we sell it in a separate section and label it as short-dated film and also price it with a slight discount (again due to the volumes we sell this rarely occurs). Unfortunately we do not have access to our inventory to hand inspect the expiration date of any of our films prior to purchase.

If I stop a roll before I use each film shot how can I reinsert it to finish the shots?
Asked by: Esti
yeah, pretty sure Dennis A knocked the answer out of the park. that said, I think hp5's versatility is crazy and worthy of plenty of experimentation to get results that please you.
