Ilford FP4 Plus - 4x5 Sheet Film - 25 sheets
Our Price: £45.00 GBP100520
FP4+ is a sublime Ilford emulsion.
It's very sharp in all formats, and you will notice it most when shooting sheet film - large format brings out the best from FP4! Great detail, medium contrast, and fantastic consistency shot-to-shot.
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 have dabbled with a lot of black and white film but it wasn’t until starting to use HP4 plus in 4x5 that I felt that I’d found one, for this format, that shares how I felt when taking the shot. It’s gentle and soft with the shallow depth of field and tolerant of my slightly ad-hoc exposures… while retaining so much detail where I want it too. can’t recommend it enough.
I used a lot of this film whilst in training at RAF Cosford and became familiar with the 5 x 4 format. This was considered a workhorse of a film and with large format when exposed correctly produced littel to no grain. The images shown wer taken in the 1970's and have survived well. scanning the negs was a slight problem so they were photographe on a light box.
I seem to remember that we developed the neg in D76 as standard.
My favourite film in 120 - even better in 4x5. Grain disappears in film this big, and the film Kris it beautiful tones and forgiving nature. This will be my go to film for LF from now on - Ajay ordered another box!
