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.

I've been using FP4+ for a very long time now and despite all the other films that have come and gone, I still find myself returning to it. It has a wonderful 'look' for want to a better word - combine it with a decent lens or two and you've got a negative that prints well. I've found it suited to a good range of developers too - HC110 and Pyrocat-HD being my favourites, but I've also used it with Rodinal (et al) D76/ID11, Microphen and XTOL. I found best results rating it at EI 80 - OK it makes handheld more difficult, but I mostly work from a tripod anyway - this being said given some decent weather, it is eminently suitable as a walkabout film. Give it a go - you might well come to love it. By the way, the river shot is Pyrocat and the building is HC 110.
FP4 in a few slightly different forms, has been around for a LONG time, and the reason for that is...it does exactly what you expect it should do.
If you do your bit, FP4 will give you fantastic results every time.
I’ve been using FP4 for years (always rated at ASA 100) and it never disappointed (unless there was a user error during the shooting or development process).
Even though I’ve switched to its cheaper brother, Kentmere 100 for my medium format images I couldn’t resist to pick up a couple of rolls of FP4 during my holidays in Italy.
I developed one of them in Bellini Hydrofen and the photo uploaded is the result.
It’s everything I was expecting from the film: low grain, sharpness and medium contrast (dilution was 1:39).
Classic emulsion with nice tones.
