I’ve only shot a couple of rolls of this film, both in my Mamiya C330 medium format camera and I’ve been really pleased with both of them. I’m now happy to report that I’ve got a brick of 10 films sat in my fridge after my last piggy points spending spree.
Summertime. Sun, light, brilliant sky! For this season, I love the Ilford FP4+ film, that I use normally for my 35mm cameras, but this time, for my Holga 120 N!
As a medium speed film with a nominal ISO of 125, it is best shot in good light. It can be pushed, but not very well, so better to use HP5+ if you are planning to shoot in low light. But FP4+ rewards you with a huge dynamic range and beautiful tonality. Its wide exposure latitude means that it is very forgiving, although I found that it compresses highlights better than it keeps shadow detail, therefore, I recommend stand development when you have not been able to calculate your exposure accurately and need the shadows.
