Ilford HP-5 reviews

HP5 Plus Single Use Camera with Flash 27 Exposures is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera, but got shocked (Literally) I have access to developmy film at school, that was the easy part, opening up the camera and such. The images on the negative looked great. So when I was all done, I took what was left of the camera (I had to crack it open of course to retrievethe film) and I literally got an electrical shock from the unit. The shock happened after I took out the battery. So if you process the film yourself, be careful about handling the camera and it was not a just a little shock it made my finger sting for over an hour. Other than that, it made good pictures, I will just be more careful next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Film Lovers Everywhere! I wanted a lightweight, compact, shatterproof, water-resistant and inexpensive camera for shooting black-and-white film at a New Year's Eve party and opted for Ilford's HP5 Plus Single-Use Camera. For $$ the camera includes a fixed-focal-length lens (about 28mm), flash, flash-ready indicator light, AA battery to power the flash and light, and a 24-exposure roll of HP5 Plus (400 ASA) film. This camera substantially exceeded my expectations. Just press the flash power button for about a second, aim the camera and shoot! You can take the camera to any lab that can process black-and-white negative film. I self-processed the film and obtained 31 good-quality images. Do I get better ones from my German-made rangefinder? Of course. But for under ten dollars, you get a competent camera that includes flash and film and a thousand dollars worth of fun. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Better than Expected Nobody expects a disposable camera to produce great images. Surprisingly though, this camera actually did quite well. I purchased one of these for a social outing where I thought it would be fun, and it did not disappoint. As a 21 year old photographer and film camera collector, my friends are always fascinated when I bring around a camera they've never seen before, and this was no different. It had been a long time since anyone had seen a disposable camera, and using this was a ball. Anyone could use it because no focusing was involved, and it helped make a fun time. I developed myself in 1+4 DDX for 9 minutes as I normally would for HP5 at EI 400. The photos turned out very well. They were high contrast, surprisingly sharp, and captured the fun of the moment. Despite not planning to do so, I will likely purchase more of these in the future. Warning: Ilford does not recommend/encourage opening these yourself to develop your own film. If you've never opened a disposable camera before, I'd recommend trying to find a tutorial video online first. You can give yourself a nasty shock from the flash circuitry if you're not careful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honestly pretty good considering I'm not sure how much need there is for disposable film cameras these days, but should you need one as I did, these are honestly pretty good. Aperture, focus, and shutter speed are fixed, and you should always use the flash unless in direct, mid-day sun. I'm not sure what kind of quality you'll get if you use a developing and scanning service that isn't very experience or doesn't care much, but if you have the film developed at a quality lab or develop and enlarge/scan and print as I did, you can get more than acceptable photos from these cameras. Of course, all of this praise is assuming you know what you're getting with a disposable camera. This will never match the quality of an SLR, but if for a camera made entirely out of plastic with few mechanical parts and no manual control, this camera shoots pretty good photos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fun camera in the right situation I hope you like flash - all the pictures indoors (high school classroom) were underexposed unless the flash was used. Outside shade still needed the flash as well. It's a disposable camera not a full frame digital. It's great for a hike, a party or wherever else you don't/can't lug an expensive dslr. All pictures were relatively sharp and it was easy to compose through the small viewfinder. For the $ it's a great little option and a fun way to expose someone to the black and white film process.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very fun This camera and it's price is a surprise. You can't expect too much of it. It's a disposable camera. But if you're in a trip and a good photographer you will surely get good shots with this one. I recomment to give it a try. At least the fun is guarateed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy little cam for gear critical places I like this little cam because it is a full frame camera that is extremely robust and can be taken anywhere, especially gear critical places like beaches and festivals or street photography in shady alleys. With this camera in hand, you will not be taken as a serious photographer which is usually preferred in such settings. The film Hp5+ is one of the best BW films available. You just choose between shooting with or without flash. The rest is simple: point, shoot and wind. No focussing or anything. The flash is generally pretty good and helps to shoot even in dark settings like concerts. Recommended max. distance for flash is about 3m / 10ft which I can confirm. The lens is pretty okay and does not show any extreme flaws. It can get noticeably unsharp/distorted in the extreme edges but Id say you only notice it in maybe 1-2 pictures per roll. It is possible you get more image flaws from the average scanner than from this lens Near focus distance is alright: Though it is specified with minimum 1m and 2m for portraits, I made a selfie with it and think it is pretty okay (both arms stretched out to press shutter and flash button at the same time). It is not necessary to rewind the film because you are winding it into(!) the canister with every new frame. For safety reasons it is not recommended to open the housing to access the film because the flash capacitor is charged with a significant voltage of some 300 Volts and even if you would remove the battery. However, if you would have to access the film it would be quite easily possible with a screwdriver. The housing is designed to be selectively opened from the side and via a cap over the film canister. One would not come close to electric circles if done correctly. This design can not only protect staff in photo labs but also those who cannot leave their fingers from fiddling around with it. Still, the capacitor must be taken seriously under any circumstances. I shot 2 of those cameras on 1 weekend and are satisfied with the results. I would buy this again if I wanted to take a camera to one of those gear critical places.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid camera This is a great camera to use if you're sick of taking digital photos on your iPhone or digital camera.
