Ilford FP4 Plus 125 overview

  • 1Description

FP4 Plus from Ilford is a traditional medium-speed black and white negative film characterized by a fine grain structure with high acutance and sharpness, making it well-suited to enlarging and scanning. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 125/22° in standard chemistry, and its very wide exposure latitude enables exposing up to two stops under or six stops over while retaining usable results. In addition to general photographic applications, FP4 Plus is also an ideal choice for copy and internegative work, as well as scientific, technical, and industrial photography.

This item is one 36-exposure roll of 35mm film in a DX-coded cassette.

Ilford FP4 Plus 125 reviews

FP4 Plus Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goldilocks Film If you like medium-speed, classic-grained black and white film, this is the one. Its grain is neither too big nor too small. It is neither too contrasty nor too flat. The physical medium of the negative doesn't feel skimpy or cheap, and it doesn't curl, no matter the humidity (or lack thereof) in your darkroom. And it makes perfectly beautiful images, shot at ASA 250, and developed in Diafine. Perhaps the best reason to buy it, though, is to support Ilford. Ilford's continued commitment to film photography makes them an organization on which it is well worth spending some money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Next to perfect film This is my favorite B&W film: grain is extremely fine, which makes it sharper than other films (to me). It's great for outdoors and not-so-bright lite, and if used with fast glass it's an all-around type of film. Only drawback: it may not be push-processed beyond ISO 200. All in all, when rated at ISO 125 offers a great tonal range. The thing I like the best about it is that it doesn't take a long time to develop, and it dries wonderfully flat (which makes it easy to scan).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FP4 & HP5; very nice I've been shooting TMX and TMY for many years, but when I dragged out the 6x6 camera a few months back, I decided to try the Ilford pair, FP4 and HP5. One reason is that one-shot at 1:3, they both take the same developing time, so I can develop a tank with one roll of each. The Ilford films don't seem quite as crisp as TMX/TMY, but I'm getting just lovely skin tones--beautiful IMO. (I'm shooting 120 and using D-76.) Everybody has a different opinion but I'm VERY pleased with the Ilford HP5/FP4 pair for everyday use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting Film Stock indeed This black and white film stock is unique indeed - it's almost creamy in texture. I would say it's low in contrast and heavy on the greys, which surprised me, but knowing this, I can use it in the future to specific effect. If you want something high in contrast that looks like typical black and white, go for the TMAX. This Ilford FP4 stock will give you something much more dreamlike, so I would use it in more painterlike, lower contrast situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy FP4 has a creamy look that I love. When I look at my photos taken with FP4, I have a more emotional response than when I look at photos taken with Delta 100 or Tmax 100. Maybe it's the old-style emulsion. The lab that develops my film uses Xtol which I find works very well for this film. I rate it at ISO 100 and use it in my Hasselblad and Contax 645 cameras.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best B&W film out there Great choice for most of my Portraiture work, sharp, detailed & I LOVE that B&H always has plenty of it with fresh Dates and a Great Price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From an HP5-user I shoot mostly street photography and documentary portraits. As a long-time HP5 user, I love the grain, even in scans, but for portraiture I found that it became overstated when editing the scans digitally. The FP4 yields excellent negatives with noticeably finer grain than the HP5, but be mindful that the 125 ISO requires more light to achieve the kind of contrast the 400 yields easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going Back to The Basics I rediscovered B&W photography with this film! I had used other brands in the past, but, they don't seem to provide much contrast especially under a cloudy sky. The photo I took (see attached) was with a Nikon FM3a, a 45mm/2.8P lens with a NC filter attached. The cloud outlines seem fine. The contrast seem acceptable. It would normally require a yellow filter to bring out the cloudy sky's contrast. The same roll was developed using an Ilford mailer. I paid extra for a higher resolution scan (about 4-5MPs). Their service was excellent!
