To understand more about the details above you can check out our film guide or if you want some inspiration then head over to our page on choosing your next film. And if you want the full details about the film, including technical information, read about Ilford FP4 Plus over on EMULSIVE.


Ilford was founded in 1879 in the English town of the same name. They are B&W royalty in the photography industry thanks to their 140-year heritage and their support for photographers with chemicals and development as well as film. In the mid-20th Century they produced several well-regarded camera lines (including one given to Princess Elizabeth that was later stolen!) but today they are focused on producing the best films and development processes that they can.

Running against the grain...

This may seem odd for such a staple but I don't typically enjoy shooting with this film as more often than not I feel it is necessary to push no matter the conditions if you ever go near landscapes. (Which I won't be anymore.) Seems much more suited for street photography.

Excellent film

I love this film. Excellent contrast and consistent results. I develop in Ilford LC29 and the grain size is fine, even when I enlarge to 16 x 12.

Love the Contrast

I really like this Film, I love how the contrast can be so distinct, it can really help emphasise your subject.
My samples look scuffed and I think that adds to it, though that is not a issue with the film but with me. (I developed them my selves)
It was my first time developing film and I thought these were great for a starter to develop. not to long to bath and the chemicals kits are readily available.
Even on this site.
Would definitely recommend, if you're looking for a nice Black & White film.

Don't be afraid to push the look

Until now, I've never tried pushing FP4+, but seeing how Paul was saying in a recent AW video that it has a wide exposure latitude, I decided to give it a try and see what the results came out like. I'm glad to say that, after developing in Kodak HC110 dilution B for 17 minutes (Massive Dev Chart says 16-18 mins, so for a benchmark I went for 17) the negatives came out looking great..bags of contrast and a nice tonal range between the 2 extremes. Will I shoot FP4+ at 400 again?.....YES, but I'll probably reduce the develpoment time a little, as at 17 mins I feel the negatives were very slightly overdeveloped....I'll probably try 16 mins next time. Overall though, I'm very happy with how these images turned out once scanned and I did a tiny bit of post in Affinity Photo, but nothing drastic.

Incredible Exposure Latitude and Great Tones!

I took this roll with me on a hike in the Peak District (The Great Ridge, Mam Tor, Back Tor, Lose Hill, Castleton) and wasn't expecting too much from it but it really blew me away with how generous its exposure latitude is. I've since read that it can be over exposed by up to 6 stops and still retain detail! Since the start of 2021 I've shot a lot of black and white film (as I now develop it myself at home) and this is one of my favourite rolls I've shot - though the great scenery definitely influences that. The grain is definitely noticeable but is also quite attractive (in my opinion) and adds a lot of mood to the shots. Definitely will buy and use again - probably when I want a grainy, gritty look and need a tonne of exposure latitude.

I shot this on my Canon A1, developed in HC-110 (Dil. B) at 20 degrees for 9 minutes, and scanned with my Plustek OpticFilm 8100. No adjustments have been made in post (Lightroom, Photoshop, etc.) on these pictures so you can see what you get straight from the negative.
