    FP4 is a midspeed replacement for Plus-X

      Comments about Ilford FP4 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll):

      Since the Sixties my midspeed, fine-grain B&W film was Kodak's Plus-X. Ilford's FP4 is my "old-school" B&W replacement. "Good" old-fashioned, it's a complement to Delta 100/Acros/TMX technology. FP4 supposedly has the greatest latitude of the midspeeds, develops well in a wide range of chemistries, traditional or modern. Unless "K" brings back Plus-X, FP4 is my new go-to.

              Comments about Ilford FP4 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll):

              I hadn't shot FP4 since 1983, but thought I'd give it another try. As an inveterate Plus-X shooter, I figured that FP4 might give me similar tonality. I was right. It's very close, and is a more than acceptable substitute. Thus far, I've developed it in X-Tol (EI 125 1:1 for ten minutes at 68F) and in HC110 Dil B. Both worked well, but I'm leaning toward the X-Tol 1:1 because of the slight increase in contrast. Yes, I like this film very much. I like having edge numbers on a bulk roll - some don't have them (Fomapan, among others). Very smooth grain and very acceptable contrast with normal development. I can't wait to see what this looks like pulled!

                This film is amazing! I love the grain and smoothness of the mid tones. I soup it in Rodinal and its the perfect combo. I'd recomend this film all day.

                Comments about Ilford FP4 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll):

                This BW film has a beautiful and classic look, perfect for portraits. I develop it mostly in HC-110 (dilution B) and it scans or wet print well with not too much grain. I also use it in 120 size for landscapes. Highly recommended!

                    I use Ilford FP4 Plus for people photography.

                    It's a great film for making fairly large prints, especially when using medium format film.

                    Pricing and delivery are excellent with B&H.

                    I highly recommending buying this film and using B&H for your supplier.

                      I haven't loaded my own b&w film for years, so this year I made a vow to get back into film photography and decided on Ilford FP4 - because of its high quality, fine grain, and B&H price.

                      I'm in the process of getting my bulk loading equipment together. Can't wait to load my own!

                          This was my first use of FP4+ - I usually shoot Ilford Delta 100 and I really I just thought I'd give the 125ISO a try. It does everything that Ilford promises and performs well in varying light situations.

                            Always bulk load if possible, it's much cheaper. Usually get about 20 rolls of 36exp from 100' roll. Love this film for its classic look, unlike the newer T-grain films (Tmax, Delta, etc). Since APX is hard to find now, this is my go to.

                            Love the properties and qualities of this film, and since Plux-X is non-existent or hard to find anymore this is a perfect alternative. The thing I HATE about my most recent purchase of this film is the packaging. There's no can of any kind, the film is simply packaged loose inside a black plastic bag, like that you'd get paper in. Unfortunately, the bag isn't sealed in ANY way, and if you're not careful you can easily drop the roll right out of the bag ruining the whole roll. Come on, GIVE US A CAN, or at least seal the bag with some tape.

                                  Bought this along with another long time favourite HP5. Great that still available in bulk.[...]

                                      Good tonal range . This is a good all around film for me . I usually shoot it at iso 100 and achieve good results with hc-110 .

                                          My film of preference when shooting in the sun. It really comes to life when you have enough light and shadow, recording fantastic amounts of detail in both shadows and highlights, with a very pleasant mid-tones in between.

                                          For overcast and lower light shooting I prefer HP5+.
