Ilford FP4+ (35mm, 125 iso) user-review

1

A beautiful black and white film for sunny days! Also has a very notable grainyness that is somehow rough and at the same time very sharp even if you have it printed on a larger scale.

A beautiful black and white film for sunny days! Also has a very notable grainyness that is somehow rough and at the same time very sharp even if you have it printed on a larger scale.

It’s 125 ASA might give it the little touch of overexposure that gives the film its extra boost needed giving your photographs a deeper feel of black and white, beautiful indeed! What i used was an expired stock from 2001 (and i still have 3 more!) I was stunned and fell immediately in love upon using this film.

I noticed that a bright sunny day helps a lot to get it almost on the edge of overexposing. The effect on it was it had nice hard contrast and shadows that also amplifies the grain.

I must say the sun, the LCA and fp4+ is a great combination!
