The definitive high-speed 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 35mm 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.

Better than expected...

I bought some Delta 3200 to experiment with over winter when light is a bit more scarce. I'd read all sorts of articles about how to expose it etc and there are many opinions but I decided to do the 1st one at 3200 and see how I got on (pulling to 1600 seems popular and I'll try that sometime). I had expected rather coarse grain but I developed it in DDX at 20c for 12 mins which is more than Ilford's recommended 9:30. 3 mins in Ilford rapid fix (I did a clip test) and the grain was so much finer than I'd expected which I was happy about - Coarse grain has it's place of course, I just didn't want it on this occasion. Apparently Pyro 510 gives the finest grain and good sharpness but I don't have any.
I'd exposed the film at night around my old home town and whilst I'm not gong to win any prizes I got a few reasonable frames.
On my 2nd roll which I haven't developed yet I shot it in daylight and although it's winter I was still getting insane shutter speeds even with the lens at F22 a couple of times which thankfully my camera can deal with but other cameras may not and will require an ND filter. Worth thinking about if you're thinking about buying a roll or two.
I intend to shoot roll 3 indoors during the evening and see how that goes.
Overall I'm pleased with it, mainly because I can get the grain to a quite acceptable level and it opens up opportunities for hand held photography in conditions that you wouldn't normally manage. I really think I'll be going through many more rolls of this and finding out my favourite way to use it.
Another thing worth mentioning is that if you're going to do long exposures then you need to add quite a bit for reciprocity failure - Ilford do a nice graph to show you what to add. If your metered exposure was 10s for example, the corrected value is the sheet from Ilford and read it.

Great for night shoots

I use a lot of HP5 plus but this was my first time trying Ilford Delta 3200.
My intention was to try, for my first time, some night shooting over the Christmas period.
I was really pleased with the results! Our visit to the Winter Wonderland was beautifully captured and it's given me the encouragement to try similar night time work with this film in future.

My favourite

Although HP5 is a go-to film for me. Delta32k is my favourite B&W film I've shot. There's still a lot for me to learn about the extent the film can be used. However, the texture and character of the images are really unique. I wouldn't say it's all-purpose because of the 'characterful' nature of the grain. Although, it is very good for low light conditions. The only thing that stops me shooting it constantly is the price. Setting the price aside, you definitely get what you pay for with Delta32k.

Tried it again, and again, and again - not sure about it. Even with its dedicated DDX developer this film is very unstable, often ends up as undeveloped at least a stop at it's box speed of 3200. The instruction tells that it's actual speed is just 1000ISO which makes even more confusion about it. Be carefull, it's not just "fast film to shoot in the dark". More like extremely experimental matrerial to play with.
