The Old Images from Expired B&W Film: Ilford FP4+ (120, 125 iso) User-Review


Texture of the film a little more certain. Tone of the image look smoother. Detailed in the highlight is quite good.

I got Ilford FP4 plus, 125 iso film: a black and white film from a friend. His family kept it in good care up until its expiration years.(Do not know the exact expiry date because it didn’t came with the box by the time I took hold of it). I have taken this film with Hasselblad 500c / m + Distagon 50mm f1: 4 and took several shots without any guarantee on my mind if it’s actually going to work. After the film came out from the lab, I was shocked by the results because the film look slightly different on the ground like the dead! I am very happy with the pictures after I scanned them.The images look as old as the ancient atmosphere of yesterday.

I like these pictures I had with this film a lot. Next time I’ll try it with other medium format babies, either the Holga or Diana F+.
