Ilford HP5+ in the Contax T2

A quick update on my Contax T2 experiences, this time with a closer look at how HP5+ performs in this neat little camera.

For several weeks I have been using Ilford’s HP5+ in my Contax T2 to test the camera out some more. I believe that I know HP5+ well enough to know how it reacts in different light situations and as I did shoot a lot of HP5+ in my Leica MP this was a good method of comparing the two cameras. I was quite excited for the results and I’m happy how they came out. Sharpness, contrast and grain are as you’d expect it, HP5+ is very versatile and a good film for your day to day photography and the T2 does a great job in most situations.

All pictures were shot at ISO 400, home-developed in Ilfotec DD-X, 9 minutes at 20°C. Agitation for 10 seconds once a minute. Scanned with a Noritsu LS-600.

Let me know what you think about it and what your experiences are with HP5+ and the Contax T2.
