Ideal for the beginning black and white film photographer, this Multigrade IV RC DeLuxe Paper and HP5 Plus Film Value Pack from Ilford includes a 25-sheet pack of pearl Multigrade IV RC DeLuxe paper as well as two rolls of 35mm, 36-exposure HP5 Plus black and white negative film.
Multigrade IV RC DeLuxe Paper (Pearl, 8 x 10", 25 Sheets)
A versatile paper for general black and white enlargements, this box of 25 sheets of 8 x 10" Multigrade IV RC DeLuxe Paper from Ilford features a pearl 44M surface finish that has a more textured appearance than glossy paper to help reduce overwhelming surface reflections, yet still retains some reflectivity to achieve deeper black values for a longer apparent tonal scale. Its bright white base tint delivers a cool-to-neutral image color, and it responds well to select toners, especially selenium, for increasing the effective print lifespan. As a variable contrast paper, it responds to seven full grades of contrast during printing, when using multigrade filters, and it is suitable for printing both conventional black and white negatives as well as chromogenic black and white negative films. Additionally, the paper can be processed using standard black and white chemistry in either trays or using machine processors.
HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures)
Ilford's HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film is a traditional and versatile panchromatic film designed for general use in a wide variety of shooting conditions. Exhibiting notably wide exposure latitude, this film responds well to use in mixed and difficult lighting and provides medium contrast for greater overall control. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° when developed in standard black and white chemistry, and responds well to push processing. HP5 Plus is a flexible film type that is ideally suited for use in general photographic applications in an array of different lighting conditions.
