      I am an art student and use the film for various photography projects from portraiture to landscape. The film is very versatile and provides great contrast throughout the image. The fine grain allows for a sharp and refined look for my portraits and shows great detail in portraits. It's hard to have a lower ISO but is great with enough available light.

      I started taking photos and developed the film and realized instantly that there were hundreds of perfect thin scratches going across every single negative. All of them have it so far and it is very noticeable especially on black spots. It is not water drips or scratches by anything - it is impossible. My only explanation along with a few of my teachers is that it was scratched up while being produced at Ilford's factory. Luckily I cannot see it on my prints so far. I am hoping they all do not look like this but probably they will. The good news is its not showing up on the prints but the bad news is my negatives look awful and I have no idea if it will get worse as I use more film and maybe it will show on my prints. Very disappointed.

          Comments about Ilford FP4 Plus 4x5" 100 Sheets Black & White Print Film (ISO-125):

          I shoot it at an EI of 64 to 125 depending on the scene and the light and then I tray process FP4+ in Xtol 1+3 for a balance of sharpness, beautiful gradation, and great creamy tonality. When I want it sharp and then some, I use Pyrocat-MC or -PC semi-stand 2:1:300 with equally beautiful results. When you see the negatives come out of the fixer, you only want to go out and shoot more. Keep a box in the freezer so you don't run out.

          Comments about Ilford FP4 Plus 4x5" 100 Sheets Black & White Print Film (ISO-125):

          This film is fantastic. I am just starting out on a 4x5 camera, but this film is better than the HP5 my teacher gave us. The lower ISO allows for less grain when printing large images in the darkroom and an overall better image. I've had a lot of luck with getting a great range of tone in my negatives using this film. I would recommend this product for anyone using a 4x5.

            I have been using Ilford films for nearly 20 years and this one is a classic. It's a great all around film, suitable for just about any application. It has very fine grain, wide exposure latitude and responds well to push and pull processing. It consistently produces great images of both studio and outdoor subjects. Along with the HP5, it is currently my favourite film for large format photography. I just hope that Ilford never stops producing it!

              I've been shooting almost nothing else in my 4X5 for years. What's not to like? It's sharp, nice grain, great tonal range and shows consistently high quality control.

                  I've been using this film for a couple weeks now, and I have been very pleased with it. I am especially happy with the wide tonal range. Beautiful prints, it's a great option for a slower speed film.

                                  I often try different films but always seem to come back to this. Works in many different developers, I mainly use ID11 or Rodinal, and it is very forgiving.
                                  The box speed is spot on too.

                                      I use this film as my primary film emulsion, for all my analog imagery. This is a great film with little grain and great latitude in developing. I am currently using this film as the primary medium for my Thesis work. It is a consistent film and results every time. I would highly recommend it for work that requires a constant and consistent results.

                                      It comes in divided packets inside the box, making it simple to remove a portion to a smaller box for field work so you do not have to carry all 100 units.

                                        Great quality film for a decent price. But it really depends on what kind of film you like, but you can't go wrong with the Ilford FP4 ISO-125. I would say the best for its price.

                                          I am an art student and use the film for various photography projects from portraiture to landscape. The film is very versatile and provides great contrast throughout the image. The fine grain allows for a sharp and refined look for my portraits and shows great detail in portraits. It's hard to have a lower ISO but is great with enough available light.

                                            While this is the only black and white film I've ever used, I do believe that it's the best 4x5 film available today. It's all we're really allowed to use at Art Center and since [...] is the man, I do believe that he's correct in his film choice. If you're shooting 4x5 definitely work with this film.

                                              I am a photography student and would not choose any other film to shoot with! Beautiful tonal range and incredibly sharp, little to no film grain!
