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.

Whilst finding my feet with B&W film I read a lot about what film stocks were good for different situations. I wanted to shoot a roll at a local Motorcycle Show and I bought a couple of rolls of Ilford FP4 and waited for a sunny day. That day came at the August bank holiday weekend here in the UK and I had a fun day out at the Bike Show. Given that most of my favourite bikes are black and chrome, FP4 was the best film to use that day. FP4 gave me the deep blacks I needed whilst not blowing out too many highlights and the sharpness and fine grain gave me exactly what I had hoped for. FP4 is a great sunny day film with great contrast and sharp, fine grained images that produced a couple of great wall hangers.
Ilford HP4 Plus is a film I managed to receive cheap via an Amazon sale and while I enjoyed the results, it does lack a lot of the character that I look for in a B&W film. Clean exposures with a lot of detail but a bit sterile to my taste. It may be because British weather often doesn't give it the light it needs to shine while ISO 400 films truly unlock their brilliance in the UK clouded light. I don't know. Still, a fun film.
This is one of my favourite films, the grain is fine and gorgeous, it handles highlights beautifully along with great tones. I’ve developed this in both DF96 and Rodinal with great results. Doesn’t push brilliantly though, anything more than iso 200 starts to suffer a bit (in my opinion). A perfect fine grained film in my book!
This is a great fine grain film that retains detail really well. I've found that when pushing the film it quickly gets very contrasty. I'd recommend this for UK summertime, when you're guaranteed slightly more than 2 hrs daylight averager per day.
