My favorite!I absolutely love this film, a favorite of mine when it comes to Black and White.
Great FilmI've been using HP5 for my outdoor photography since it came out in the late 1970s. It's a wonderfully versatile film that I've pushed as far as ISO6400 for indoor low-light shooting. It holds up well, too. I just scanned some of my first HP-5 rolls and the images are still as crisp as the day I developed them!
