    Ilford HP5 Plus 400 reviews

    HP5 Plus 8x10" 25 Sheets Black & White Print Film (ISO-400) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP5+ is a lovely film. Because of it's great reciprocity characteristics, my favorite film in 8x10 has been T-Max 400; it threw me off when Kodak discontinued it so I started trying other films. I make large pigment landscape prints for gallery exhibition so it was important to me to have consistency. Let's face it, when you shoot in this format, grain is really no longer a consideration so it is all about the look of the film. I have always liked Delta 100 as it scans so well but in 8x10 it is too sharp for the look I am after. I was pleasantly surprised with HP5+, it is a very forgiving film and exposed at E.I. 100 and processed in Xtol gives me the shadow detail I prefer- and a beautiful tonal pallet! Bravo to Ilford for offering this lovely emulsion in 25 sheet boxes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to film. HP5 Plus is the perfect film for most purposes. There may be situations where the reciprocity calculations make for some very long exposures. T-Max might be better in those situations. I tray develop it with Pyrocat-HD and the tones and smooth and consistent. After testing I expose HP5 at 200 ISO. The emulsion is not as fragile as the Bergger films. If I'm only carrying one film in my backpack, this is it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shooting Still life with it. Currently using it in studio under continuous tungsten lights. It seems an excellent film. Love the extra speed. Several exposures to get the images I am making through an old Ektar 250mm Wide-Field. I'm happy with it. Xtol for developer in Trays, 1:1 at 68 degrees for 9:40.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific for Pyro I'm using this 8x10 film for palladium and platinum prints as well as contact prints on silver papers. Its tonal range in D-76 is similar to that of the old Verichrome Pan, which was my favorite, so it makes beautiful contacts on silver paper. For Pt/Pd, I develop it in Gordon Hutchings' PMK pyro, and it takes the pyro stain beautifully; I can usually get enough contrast for Pt/Pd with +2 development. Even with this development, its fog level is almost zero.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A workhorse I use HP-5 mostly in my large-format work (8x10, 4x5 9x12). It has great exposure latitude and is very forgiving. I like the way HP-5 handles high-contrast situations and delvers a beautiful negative with very smooth mid tones. As with all LF sheet film, extra care is required to prevent scratches and dust, but HP-5 is one of the most widely used emulsions because of its consistent and predictable results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to film for black and white shots! I have been using Ilford films for many years now and I cannot complain about a thing! With this particular 8x10 film I have always had consistent tonal range with each shot from the same series. I shoot mostly indoor low-light scenarios with this 400 speed film and the results are great. If you want consistent, acurate film results...this is the film to choose!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Time Shooting 8x10 I recently purchased this film because I had the opportunity to borrow an 8x10 camera from a friend. I normally shoot with Ilford HP5 4x5 film, so I stuck with what I knew and bought the larger version. After hand processing my film it seemed to me that the 8x10 film may even be less prone to scratching than the 4x5. I'm very impressed with the quality!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has become my go-to B&W film Exceptional film. Inexpensive, fast, super-fine grain, very easy to develop and very easy to scan.
