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.

Ilford FP4

Film's fine, reasonable grain and tone.

What shone was the quality of the scans. Not the fastest on earth, but when you see how clean and sharp they are it's worth the wait.

I got these done up as high-res Tiffs and gave them a tickle in GIMP afterwards to tone them.

Great film!

FP4 is great film, especially for daylight scenes. It gives brilliant contrast and a very classic B&W look.

FP4+ As versatile as an egg.

I've shot a fair amount of FP4 over the years, but since I returned to film photography after a few years away, I've really started to explore the possibilities of this film. I've pushed it to 400 with great results, I've slightly over exposed it by shooting at 100, then today I just shot a roll at 125, as my Pentax P30n is a DX code camera with no manual ISO setting facility..but that's ok.
I ventured out into Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, just a few miles away from home, and did some street photography, as the authorities are making some alterations to the town's marketplace. I soon shot the roll and decided to develop it in Atomal 49 at stock for 8 minutes...a developer I've never used for FP4 before, but worry not, the results came out just fine. FP4 does it again. So reliable when you're wanting nice results. You do your bit, and FP4 will deliver.

Old classic!

I have recently got back into film photography, fp4 (or fp3) was my go to film back in the 70's 80's in those days Ilford made the best bw film, the images I've included was shot on an nikon f65, bit grainy was expecting a little less grain, but could be the developer (fomapnan excel) will be trying different films for comparison!

Great Contrast

I love the contrast I get with FP4, particularly in the woodland near my home. It has deep blacks and keeps a lot of shadow detail. A great film for sunny days and where I live, you make the most of a sunny day when it comes. You can push it a couple of stops if your day isn't as sunny as you hoped and you will still get great results.
