Delta is a modern emulsion from Ilford and this is the daylight-rated variant- created with finer grain to provide sharp black and white images with excellent contrast.

While this means the 35mm film is slightly less forgiving of wide exposure latitudes, the professional results when you nail the exposure will blow you away!



Format: 35mm
Colour: B&W
Type: Negative
ISO: 100
Exposures: 36

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.

Great for capturing detail in good light

I shot my first roll of this summer on a sunny day in Weymouth. I love the way it captures detail (check the attached photo of the statue of Queen Victoria for example) and would definitely buy again. However, those who are looking for something more interpretive might find it a bit neutral.

another Ilford classic

This is similar to the FP4 125, but with improved contrast & finer grain, something to use when you want to switch it up a bit.

I decided to try Ilford Delta 100 after using FP4. I was looking for good contrast and finer rendering of detail while retaining a reasonable speed on the slow scale. The applications I had in mind were landscape and architecture.

I’ve been pleased with the results. Following advice, I tried to be careful with exposure and used good lenses, for example, Nikon 35mm f1.4 AIS and Zeiss Milvus 50mm f1.4. Scanning with SilverFast supports getting good dynamic range in the output files, but it’s clear, when compared with scans from other film stock, that the film is doing the hard work.

I’m a fan and now see Ilford Delta 100 as a core member of the range of films I like to use. I don’t recommend it as a snapshot or “walk around” film. It’s a film for considered use. I haven’t tried it for portraits. No filters were used for the example photographs.

Great Results (If used well)

Ilford's Delta films are lovely films but quite picky when it comes to correct exposure. Delta 100 is no exception to this and should be treated as carefully as a colour slide film. I ignored this the first time I shot Delta 100 and stuck it into a aperture priority camera which only gave me 6 usable shots! However, the grain is really fine, even when developed in LC-29 and the contrast is great (much better then FP4).

Overall, I would say this is not a film to use as a beginner and does require the photographer to have a better understanding of exposure to get the full impact of this film.

Does what it says on the box....

Very sharp, very little grain. But a bit lacking in "character"? Not as foolproof as Ilfords more traditional emulsions,,,,,,
