                  This film is a little fickle at first, a lot of my colleagues tend to consider it a rather grey film, however with a little work you can get an amazing range of tonality.

                  Pros: Great tonal range, very smooth grain

                  Cons: Can be a little grey, but that can be fixed either in camera or during developing.

                        This is the standard film that I rely on day to day for my black and white work. Prefer the 24exp as I find it's easier to handle in the darkroom than 36exp. This film also feels quite robust when being handled in the darkroom. Always very consistent results and the bulk buy option is economical.

                            In the description of Ilford's FP4 it reads, "exceptionally fine grain." No it isn't. I would characterise it as moderately fine-grained; it most cases it has the grain of a 200 speed film.

                            Do not get me wrong--I do not believe grain should be invisible, I am just going by their description and FP4 is not "EXCEPTIONALLY" fine grain. That is a pretty strong choice of words and it simply does not ring true.

                            FP4 isn't about fine grain; people get it for tonality--and in that respect, it is one of the world's best.

                                  Shooting during the day or shooting people, I can't go past FP4. It's a wonderful film with great tonality. An FP4 negative looks distinctively FP4.

                                    Ilford's FP4+ is absolutely my all time favorite film. It gives a huge number of greytones, leading to creamy smooth curves. This makes it perfect for delicate subjects, such as portraits or flowers. It has a gentle contrast curve and reacts very well to alternate developing techniques. For example, I can over-expose quite a bit to capture details in the dark ares, and then use a very dilute developer to preserve the details in the highlights. It also reacts predicatably in a high contrast developer, for industrial or overcast situations.

                                      I used this product to capture blurred action shots as well as stop-action images. I was able to capture and develop both with great precision.

                                        Love the Latitude and the contrast that this film gives me. By far one of my favorite film stocks. Also amazing for Darkroom use. I use the Nikon cool scan to conform my photos to Digital and am really impressed...

                                          I like this film very much. The ISO is perfect for outside pictures. Very good resolution for enlarging complete negative (picture) or just a specific portion of it. When developing own picture no long light exposure is needed to get it done. This is great due to the short time during photo class.

                                            I use this film all the time and is great for all sorts of black and white shots. Gives a really good contrast and have had only really good results with the overall quality of this film. have been using this for years and recommend it to anyone looking for a versatile good quality film.

                                              My standard b/w film and has been so for 30 years. good balance between speed and grain, even colour reproduction, easy to process at home

                                                I use this for personal artwork in 35mm and 4 x 5 sizes. It is an excellent all around film with good exposure latitude and nice sharpness and grain. It is less touchy than the newer flat grained or 'T-grain" films. The only films I like better are the "retro" films like Efke 50. However the retro films are not as versatile as FP4. When in doubt, FP4. I also favor Ilford's ongoing commitment to black and white photography and use their materials whenever possible.

                                                Ordering bulk supplies help me maintain a supply of film for shoots. I would actually like to see the 50 rolls come in the smaller pack with just the soft wrapping, rather than each roll be seperately boxed. It would make it less expensive, and lighter to ship.
