Ilford FP4 125 is a film we haven’t posted about yet, mainly because we’ve been too busy shooting with all the other amazing film Ilford makes. We’re glad we shot with this stuff though and defiantly plan on shooting more -we love the contrast and grain it produces when pushed 1 stop to 250iso! What do you think of the results? Would you shoot it?

This is one of my go-tos from Ilford I enjoy the latitude, the clarity, and the intensity. I highly recommend this film for any black-and-white project you have in mind. I always have mine developed as a positive. The results are indescribable.

I started using FP-4 back in the late 70’s. I’ve used a smorgasbord of developers with it but stayed with Rodinal and ASA 100 or 64 for overcast days and it’s always been superb as to shadow content, no blocked highlights and tonal range 2nd to none. A great film that I hope continues forever.

Absolutely bulletproof film. Holds highlights & shadow details. Strong contrast but still has nice mid tones. Has enough of that classic B&W grit but cleaner than Tri-X or HP5+. Spectacular film for harsh sun & it can be bulk rolled for a great price. Lays flat for scanning as well.

This film was one of the first black and white films I tried, when coming back to film in general. Shot at box speed, it has pleasant grain, and (to me) beautiful tone, especially in sunlight. Forgiving, and produced great results.
