Ilford Delta 120 Film B&W ISO 400
Now: £5.50 GBP
Delta is a modern emulsion from Ilford - created with finer grain to provide sharp black and white images with excellent contrast. 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!

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.

It has an excellent smooth tonal look, similar to HP5, but with a little added contrast. The big difference for me though is how tac-sharp every picture is. It's really noticeable. For razor-sharp images look no further. For most uses I think this is a great film, but i think especially good for portraits.
The exceptionally smooth and pleasing tones and sharpness have made this a favourite for me. I'm looking forward to trying the 35mm version too.
I am gradually returning to Ilford. It has to be the world best known name for B&W. But in my earlier days I was less skilled and didn't know how to do home development and armed with what I know now, and with my usual Ilford DD-X developer, I am getting much better results from Ilford lines.
I wanted to see if Delta 400 would match up to my previous experiences of using Tri-X for nighttime city scapes and, I think, Delta 400 might be my new goto for this kind of work. Super fine and sharp even with 1 second hand held exposures! The few I took mounted on a solid surface came out wonderful, and it prints like Acros. I've just made a print in the darkroom from one photo, and it looks like a poster developed in DD-X. Really very pleased. Will keep buying it and using it and see how I get on going forward. Top marks Ilford!
The results from this roll came back rather flat for some reason. I wasnt keen on the end result so have tried to increase contrast in postprocessing to achieve results I like. I probably need to try this again as the detail is great but would like to get the kind of contrast highlighted in the description above.
A gorgeous, fine grain black and white film that's capable of capturing lots of detail. Worth paying a little extra for something a bit different to my mind. Relatively low contrast at box speed which I like.
