Description

The definitive high-speed medium format film to take with you to concerts, underground parties, and other night-time excursions. Delta is a modern emulsion from Ilford - created with finer grain to provide sharp black and white images with excellent contrast even in low light. While this means the 120 film is slightly less forgiving of wide exposure latitudes, the professional results when you nail the exposure will blow you away!

To understand more about the details above you can check out our film guide or if you want some inspiration then head over to our page on choosing your next film. And if you want the full details about the film, including technical information, read about Ilford Delta over on EMULSIVE.

Ilford was founded in 1879 in the English town of the same name. They are B&W royalty in the photography industry thanks to their 140-year heritage and their support for photographers with chemicals and development as well as film. In the mid-20th Century they produced several well-regarded camera lines (including one given to Princess Elizabeth that was later stolen!) but today they are focused on producing the best films and development processes that they can.

Versatile film

Ive used this emulsion for a long time now, just got back into it after sometime. Rated at 400, ideal for most low light situations, very flexible. ive rated up to 6400 in the past and it hsas a gorgeous grain structure too it, not harsh by any means. well suited to very low light at this speed too. If you havent tried it yet give it a go and you may never go back!!

Just buy some

Such a good all-rounder, beautiful grain with 120 - I shoot it at box speed and develop with Rodinal.

A Nice Surprise

So ISO3200 hey? Knowing that a lot of people believe the 'true' speed of this film to be around the 1200-1600 mark i went out and shot it at 3200 anyway.
ISO3200 to me at least makes me jump to low light, maybe night, for sure indoor shots. Decent exposure times at the 'sacrifice' and some heavier grain.
Well, what do you know...I used this film in a pinhole camera in a bunch of different lighting situations and was amazed at its all round integrity. High noon exposures outside of less that a second and inside for maybe 20 minutes. And lets be honest, the metered outdoor exposures were quicker than i can open and close a pinhole - so should have been hugely overexposed but they really weren't. This film seems to have a huge latitude for exposure, retains detail in both the shadows and the highlights and those midtones look great no matter what light you through at them.
Oh, and that heavy grain...doesn't look that heavy to me!

So maybe its not an everyday film, but you certainly needn't worry if you've shot half a roll the night before and need to finish the roll in the daytime - you'll be fine.

Perfect for dull winter days!

Until recently, I had not used Delta 3200 for over a decade. Last time I used it was in 35mm. These days I shoot mostly 120 and so I decided to shoot this for several winter scenes with the family. I shot it at EI1600 to try and bring down the grain a little and that still enabled me to shoot easily at 1/250th of a second despite the snow blizzards. I developed it in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X as per the directions inside the box, and the results were very pleasing. Grain is even less noticeable than I remembered and some lovely vibrance between bright snow and dark clothes etc. This sample shot I also darkroom printed with great effect.

I've award 4/5 because it's a stunning film, very affordable, and very useful but it's not quite perfect. It seems curl quite a bit, for one thing, which makes scanning a bit fiddly. Sure, it is only a minor point, but there's no point having a star system if everyone ranks everything as 5 stars even when it's not 100% perfect is there.

Excellent for spooky castles

First time out with this film, I went to the ruins of a mediaeval castle near Edinburgh. It performed brilliantly at rendering the atmosphere of the place. Full tonal range, and easy to handle. These images were made in an Agfa Isolette folder, and stand processed in Rodinal. Super quality, contrast and flexibility. Take a roll with you anywhere.
