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.

Delta 400.

Ilford Delta 400 is one of my favourite black and white negative films. I used 0ne of the rolls which I purchased from you to take photographs at an army reunion for the regiment my brother in law belonged to on Exeter cathedral green a little while ago. The photographs were taken on a Pentax K1000 and developed in Kodak TMax developer which I think is a very good film/developer combination. The negatives produced were very good.

Nice, sharp, versatile film

Took it for a test drive walking round York and generally pretty impressed with the results. Seems to capture more detail, and with a finer grain, than the “traditional” grain 400 speed films. I have more trouble with Delta in Caffenol (semi) stand development however. Needs more periodic inversions than cheaper films in order to avoid bromide drag. Three inversions within the ~1hr time and it's still visible in some of the shots when 2 inversions in other films banishes the streaks completely. Something to keep in mind.

Mediocre, bulk standard B+W Film choice.

I had been holding onto this film for an occasion with while, wanting to make the most of the added sharpness that Ilford's Delta range has. On a recent trip to the Lake District, I took this film and loaded it for the 'highlight' climb, Helvellyn. The images produced were good, but not to my perfect liking. The shooting conditions maybe weren't great, but I foyund this film to sometimes have a heavy contrast and other times not. I'd also go as far as to say that I didn't find this film overly sharp either. In a previous review, I mentioned my newfound love of Fuji Neopan 400CN which I took on that same trip, so perhaps my opinion is thrown due to the performance of that film.
Overall, I think Delta 400 is a great all-rounder and I wouldn't complain about shooting it again. My images came out ok, however, I don't think I have found a 'go to film' in Delta 400 and I think there are other B+W films I'd turn to first.
