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 Plus is an exceptionally fine grain, medium speed black and white film. It is ideal for high quality indoor and outdoor photography, particularly when giant enlargements are to be made.
This is the most versatile film from Ilford - works perfect in every B&W developer, great for any genre in photography. One of a very few films you can trust.
nice contrast and decent shadow detail too, I prefer it to my usual hp5 for sunnier summer days.
I ended up shooting a bunch of lens tests with my first roll of this - not the best use of a stock that you have not experience with but it was lockdown and I was running out of things to occupy me! Grain is present but well defined, it doesn't get mushy like Fomapan or APX tend to and shot at box speed it gives you a whopping 1/3 of a stop advantage over your usual ISO 100s! I'm not sure however that I'll ever be in a situation where this would make or break a shot. Results were interesting enough that I would buy this again, attached pic was taken with a contax 139 quartz and a Yashica ML 50/1.7 (which outperformed my planar and all of the other yashica primes I own)
I’ve always thought that HP5 was the daddy, but now I have a new favourite! Lovely contrast, fabulous tones, and ISO 125 is perfect for shooting wide open (f3.5) on my Fujica 690 BL. It also looks lovely in my Ondu 6x9 pinhole. I’m yet to try 35mm, but in 120 it’s just lovely!
