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.

Excellent tones and small amount of grain. Easy to process and gives the correct tones for landscapes
One of the most versatile films you can get with a very simple grain (even when developed in Rodinal).
Can be pushed if needed, has a gorgeous tone and range. Fits so many daytime situations with a pleasant grain size and pattern.
I shoot this and develop in HC110 and the vast majority is in 120. I currently prefer to minimise contrast and FP4 retains sufficiently the shadow details. The fine grain works well for portraiture, landscapes (rural and city), just about anything you throw at it. I was pleased with how it came out on a pull development (50 ISO) in 35mm and the relative lack of resolution in that format was reduced by the smooth tones and the pull I did.
looking at my images over the last year , I have taken more decent images with this film then I have thought ... really pleasantly surprised about the films neutral and natural rendering of the images ... just a. great film for any use ... along with pan-f and ortho it is one of my most used films ... like it more than I like to admit ... images are developed on ilford hc and shot on a hassie 500 ...
Despite all of the wonderful diversity of monochrome emulsions available today, I still always find myself coming back to FP4 Plus in the circa 100 speed bracket. With sufficient light, this film yields very consistent results. The tonal range is beautiful and the contrast is moderate, allowing for excellent flexibility whether printing traditionally or scanning. The grain pattern is smooth but present, representing the very best of the traditional cubic grain emulsion aesthetic. It also has good latatude, allowing for some forgiveness for suboptimal exposure. This latitude can be put to good use when utilising the zone system, as well. Overall an excellent film, and it's difficult to see how it could be improved.
