ILFORD FP4 PLUS is a medium speed, all-purpose black & white film with very fine grain and outstanding sharpness.
It has superb exposure latitude above and below its ISO 125, (meaning it can be both push or pull-processed). This makes FP4 PLUS a highly capable film for most photographic subjects, scenarios and lighting conditions.
It particularly excels at highly detailed subjects in good indoor and outdoor lighting conditions and is therefore an ideal film for portraits, fashion, street, product photography, landscapes and architecture.
FP4 PLUS can be processed in a wide range of different developers using spiral tanks, deep tanks and automatic processors.

Excellent image qualityThis is my favourite Ilford film, bar none. It has sparkle in the highlights without having excessive contrast. It holds lots of detail in both bright and shadow areas and has moderate contrast throughout, making it easy to scan. Perfect for delivering digital images with the classic black & white look, and no struggle to keep the blacks from being crushed or the whites from blowing out.
My typical approach with FP4 Plus is to expose it at ISO 250 and process it in Diafine (5+5.)
