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 was surprised by the softness & fineness of this film - with almost no visible grain, there is no loss of detail in the greyscale. The price is certainly right, too!
This film, matched with Perceptol developer, is knocking on the door of perfect. Really fine grain, grate range of tones and negatives that you can work with really easily. Forgiving enough to be used handheld on most conditions, exceptional on a tripod. I love it.
Bought this to try it out in a pinhole camera. Used a couple of other Ilford films (HP5+ and PanF+) in the camera and got good results, so thought I'd keep going and try this one too. Due to a mix up I shot this at ISO 50 rather than 125, but the film is forgiving and I was happy with the results. Nice contrast and good detail (although the scans don't show this too well). Will definitely buy more for both the pinhole camera and my Mamiya TLR.
A firm favourite of mine, I bought a stash recently for a project where I planned to take a pinhole photo every day. Its fine grained look helps my pics look sharper (as much as they ever can with a pinhole camera!) and its reciprocity failure is much less than other films at this price point - a helpful factor when exposure times can run into minutes very easily.
I've been using FP4 Plus in my Chroma 679 that sports a 105 year old Kodak lens and shutter from a No. 2 Autographic Brownie and a Kiev 88 6x6 Film back.
Lovely film, easy to use and home develop.
You get nice tones and sharp pictures.
I've used the film for pictures in and around the area that I live and it's performed fantastically.
The film is very forgiving of exposure giving good results when exposed at ISO 64, which is what I have been doing.
