Ilford 1678279 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 box of 25 sheets of 4 x 5" film.

Ilford 1678279 reviews

FP4 Plus Black and White Negative Film (4 x 5", 25 Sheets) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Film-Developer Combination Still my standard film, developed in PMK, used for spectacular (if I say so myself) 16x20 prints. While a faster film (ISO 400) would be more convenient for field work, the gradation of FP4 is superior: more even contrast, from shadows right through separated whites in clouds. Faster films, to my eye, tend to cluster low to middle values around zone IV, which means that value dominates the print.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality I've always preferred Ilford film, and when I stepped it up to 4X5 photography in August, I didn't think twice about which film to buy. The low ISO still gives great detail and clarity, and this delivers even more so as a large format. Trying to focus an 8X10 print is almost impossible because the grains are so fine (which is exactly how I like it). I consistently get the same results, and I've never had a problem with the dynamic range of Ilford's films. The tones are rich and accurate. Absolutely love Ilford products!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the range of grays I get I use this product for still life's and landscapes. With overexposure and underdevelopment I get all the information I need to make great prints with this film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My film of choice for more than 30 years. Whenever situations allow I use this film as my first choice. I use 35mm, 120, 4x5 and 8x10 format films. FP4 in all formats renders beautiful images with full tonal range. The film responds exceptionally well to the classic yellow, yellow-green and 25A contrast filters. My developers are HC110 dilution H, Rodinal and ID11 1-1. The subject and lighting determines which developer dilution and agitation. There is no need to adjust ISO for daylight, LED daylight or White Lightning strobes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this film as a back up to Kodak TriX I purchased this film for a five day trip to New York City, I plan to shoot 4X5 in and around the city. FP4 is very dependable at ISO 125. It is higher contrast from my normal film TriX which is good for winter light in New York City. Reciprocity failure is very consistent and a good choice for a moderate priced B&W film.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I purchased this film to use in a 4x5 pinhole camera. I usually use Kodak Tmax 100 but I wanted to give Ilford a try and FP4+ had good reviews. I found the reciprocity with this film to be far less forgiving than Tmax. My images came out very dark. I was able to lighten them in PS but the negatives aren't contact printable, which was my intention. I've recently tried HP5+ and really like it. FP4+ just didn't work for me and maybe isn't the best choice for pinhole but it's probably great for other applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Tonal Range / Great Scans! Beautiful Long Tonal range with excellent modulation of values! FP-4 produces wonderful negatives with D-76 1:1 under normal conditions or for situations requiring a boost in contrast and nice compacted values with Ilford Perceptol (EI 50).
