    Haven't noticed any serious curl in the FP4+ in 4x5. The emulsion seems slightly more prone to scratch in processing and handling compared to Kodak though.

    I've used Delta 100 extensively for many years in both roll and sheet form and never had a problem with curling at all. As others have stated, the base is substantial. The only other film I use at all is Tri-X which does have a slight tendency to curl, but it's not significant, and it's not a concern. (I dry all roll film with metal clips at both ends, and sheet film with only one clip on one corner.)

    I've been using Ilford film since the 60's, and can't recall any problems. But I do weight the end of 35mm and 120 films and dry at room temperature. Unweighted 5x4 hasn't presented problems.

    I have used Ilford film for 30 years and have not had curling problems. I air dry with weighted clips. Tech Pan is the only film I use that curls badly. If you use a contact printer, it will hold the film flat anyway.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'll be trying the 4x5 and 120 soon using the above suggestions. It does seem like Ilford's the company to support.
