Ilford FP4 Plus is an exceptionally fine grain, medium speed, black and white film. It is ideal for high quality indoor and outdoor photography, particularly when giant enlargements are to be made. Nominally rated at ISO 125, FP4 Plus is also suited to copying and internegative work, and has many applications in scientific, technical and industrial photography. More
FP4 Plus is robust and will give usable results even if it is overexposed by as much as six stops, or underexposed by two stops. It is compatible with all major black and white processing systems, including those which give the standard short fixing and washing times.
FP4 Plus 35mm film is coated on 0.125mm/5-mil acetate base and is available in 24 or 36 exposure cassettes, or in bulk lengths of 17 and 30.5 metres (56 and 100ft). FP4 Plus 35mm film is supplied in DX coded cassettes, suitable for all 35mm cameras.

Comments about Ilford FP4 Plus 35mm film (36 exposure):
Now that digital cameras are so cheap, if you're still using film it's probably because you like the way that film looks- and FP4plus really has that look.FP4 was already the classic black and white film when I started in the 80s. FP4plus seems just as good to me now as ever. Sharp with excellent tonal range when properly exposed. Some other films are sharper but seem to have less midtone gradation.This film has been kind to me- it gives very good results when used properly and seems resilient enough to give usable results when abused (based on scanned negatives).I've developed with a range of chemicals (Ilfosol, ID-11, Percepol, Rodinal) with good results. If you're not developing it yourself, anyone who develops black and white will know what to do with this film, though commercial developing can be quite expensive. If developing cost is an issue, the C41 films aren't bad, eg XP2 or BW400CN, but nowhere near as smooth as FP4 in the greys.Being ISO125, it's probably not the first choice for indoor, telephoto or fast action.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
