Ilford HP5 120 (400 ISO)


A great contrast black and white film.

I used the Ilford HP5 400 film in my Holga 120 CFN for my photography class. I love the contrast that comes naturally from this film without having to push the development.

The grain is extremely fine, giving very crystal clear photos. Awesome film!

However, with this film, you must find a lab that still develops black and white film. DO NOT take it to a drugstore like CVS or Walgreens, even if they claim they can develop it. They cannot. I have learned this the hard way, so make sure you either develop them yourself (like I did with these) or take them to a professional lab.
