    Good stuff, sure. It's got nothing on Plus-X though, which can be drop dead gorgeous.

    Good that some can apreciate Ilford film, i can no longer. Whether it is Delta 100 or FP4+ my Jobo Expert drums just does not like Ilford film. I continue to have issues on the back of the film facing the drum. It looks like sombody was walking on my film. I have used pretty much all other Large Format film on the marked and have not seen any issues at all. I am done with Ilford.

    Odd. I have done probably 200+ sheets of FP4+ and another 50 of Delta 100 in the Jobo 3006 Expert Drum and the Jobo 2521 with 2509n reels...never had anything but excellent results. I use D-76 (1:1), d-23 and occasionally, HC-110 dil. D (1+39).

    I expect that the OP's reaction to FP4 is like my reaction to Kodak Plus-X - 125 ISO does seem to be a sweet spot for traditional emulsions in B & W film.

    I also had major problems with the non-emulsion side of Ilford films in the Jobo 3005 Expert Drum. In my case, going with a non-hardener fixer (Ilford Rapid Fixer) solved the problem.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Did you have problems with the anti-halation layer clearing?

    Yup, IMHO, this is the best B&W emulsion and soup there is.

    Vaughn, good to know that i am not the only one to have some problems with Ilford film. I have only used PF TF4 and Zonal Pro fixers. If it takes so specialized fixers as the Ilford rapid fixer they can have it. I am no longer going to take Mr. Galleys cheap access to promote what i consider a tier 3 product from Ilford/Harman.
    Kodak Rules and then there's other products that's far beyond what Ilford makes today.
