Ilford FP4 Plus 35mm Reviews

Reasonable, old style film

This is a flexible, high quality antidote to low speed T-Grain films (such as Kodak's TMax-100, etc.) which have been very popular for some time. Very flexible, dependable, and easy to print/scan. I process this film in Clayton's F76 Plus and obtain good (smooth) tonality and adequate detail across the palette. While not a perfect substitute for Kodak's Plus-X (no longer available in 135 for some time now), it's a solid performer for those situations where a sufficient amount of light is available and a cubic grain film is desired.

Excellent base, dries flat. Excellent blacks. Sharp enough. Has a nice industrial look with iron objects, concrete, and glass. Excellent film for environmental type work. I shoot it mostly at box speed, occasionally at ISO 125. I use 510 Pyro mostly to develop. If I'm running a large batch, DD-X.

This film, like most Ilford products, is excellent. B&H is my go-to supplier for film and, once again, my order arrived complete, well packaged and on time. In addition, the film was fresh, that is, the expiration date is well into the future. In the past, from other photo suppliers, the film received was outdated. B&H never does this so place your orders with complete confidence.

A few years ago, I shot a roll of FP4 and had it processed and scanned at a local lab. The results were good, but nothing to write home about. I recently decided to shoot a roll and process it myself and was pleasantly surprised. I exposed this film at 125 ASA in a variety of lighting situations. I processed it for 5 minutes at 24 degrees C in Claytons F76 Plus, 1 + 9 dilution. Water stop, five minutes in Eco-Pro fixer, followed by hypo eliminator and the Ilford 5-10-20 inversion/wash method. A minute of so in PhotoFlo, hang to dry and wow! Excellent tonality, easily scanned. This is likely to become my go to film. The only downside is that it's a little thinner than the Kodak emulsions and I'm told that it's given some people trouble on the reel. Using a Paterson reel I've had no problems ... .

An old favorite

Have been using this film for its versatility, its fine grain, tonality, for more years now than I can count... Too bad the film base seems to be thinner these days, makes it harder to load into my Nikor tanks...

question

How many rolls of film are in a box
Asked by: Anonymous
The amount of exposures and rolls you can get from the FP4 Plus 35mm 100' Roll would in part depend on how you load the cassettes. That being said, you can typically fill 15-18 empty canisters from a 100 roll. If you are looking for pre-loaded 35mm cassettes, then we cary the options on the following link: http://bhpho.to/ZJrDkk

question

Can I use this for my argus super 75 camera? A blog said j could and I'd like to make sure.
Asked by: Anonymous
Hello! I'm not sure if this will help you. But I have a Holga, and I think the principle will be similar. I've only shot 120 film in my Holga though. I think that is the ideal film format for your Argus Super 75. If you want to run 35mm film though instead, because it's narrower, you should put some sort of buffer on the outer edges, so that the film tracks straight. Otherwise it might track up and down the wider spool, and photos might be less predictable? As far as what that buffer is, you may need to be creative. You could try stacking some rubber washers, you'll likely need to cut one end of the circle to get them around the core of spools. I hope that helps! I'm sorry, I'm no expert on your camera, but I think this should be pretty accurate! Good luck!
