6 reviews for Ilford HP5 Plus 400 35mm Film 36 Exposures

  1. Parallax Photographic Coop

    One of the most popular films around, you can’t really go wrong with HP5. We like the even tones and nice contrast. Also, it picks up lots of detail, from the highlights all the way through to the shadows. Plus, it’s got a reasonable amount of grain, which we think adds to the classic look of HP5.

  2. naxxfish

    HP5+ is amazingly versatile. You can push it tonnes for low light situations, and get some lovely grain texture. It is able to capture tones quite evenly (unless pushed), and is excellent for scanning. If someone asked me what the first black and white film to try would be, this would likely be it. It’s 400 ISO useful in a variety of situations. It’s not as in-your-face contrasty as Tri-X 400, it’s not as flat as FP4 (which a lot of people go for first, for some reason?). Great for sports and action, especially with a flash!

  3. Joe Goodsell

    HP5 is probably my favourite black and white film. It can be easily pulled to 200 or pushed to 800 for a more contrasty, grainy look. It has great tones and a classic, timeless look. It should probably be the first black and white film you try, especially as it comes in at a reasonable price.

  4. Ben Mills

    Incredibly versatile film with a huge exposure latitude. Incredibly reliable and I always carry a roll with me.

  5. hrn.k

    Without a doubt, HP5 is definitely my favourite film. It’s so versatile, so affordable, so perfect. If I could shoot one film for the rest of my life, this is it. If you want finer detail or a lot of grain, this film has your back. It’s no wonder HP5 is a solid favourite for a lot of film shooters.

  6. Flamingoid

    Also a personal favorite of mine. There’s nothing HP5+ can’t do. It’s very sharp and grain has a nice beautiful structure. Exposed and processed at 200, you get a lovely tonal range with very subtle grain. Perfect for portraits or landscape. At box speed, the film packs a little bit more grain and has more contrast but can still show a nice diversity of tones. Pushed to 800 or 1600, it starts to make punchy images with a lot of character. Grain becomes a bit more obvious but the contrast is stark, and that improves the apparent sharpness. The extra speed makes it an excellent choice for low light situations, sports or street photography. I think HP5+ pushes better than Tri-X and looks its best when rated at EI 1600.
