Ilford Delta Film 35mm B&W ISO 3200
Our Price: £9.00 GBP100136
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!

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.

I shot this with a point and shoot (mju 1) in a dark pub and on the street at night. I was impressed at how much fast this film is. You really can shoot this in a concert handheld! However, I wasn't a huge fan of the prominent grain, strong contrast and kinda ugly grays i got. However, i have seen much nicer photos taken with this so it is probably me.
Delta 3200 has been around for ages but apart from using it in a Holga years ago, I've not given it a proper go until now. And the dark winter nights has been a perfect time to try it out.
It is an excellent film in low light conditions. Yes, it is grainy. But I think that just adds to the atmosphere it captures. And the grain is very nice - as is the tonality (I especially like how it goes down to complete black smoothly). It also works well during the day in certain conditions. I didn't shoot it in bright daylight, but misty mornings are nicely atmospheric with this film.
It is actually a 1600iso film, which is what I shot it at. Although I have heard of people shooting at 3200 and also down to 800. In the day I tended to use an ND filter with it or else I had very limited flexibility with aperture range (althogh you may not need to depending on how fast a shutter speed your camera has).
Overall: excellent for night time. For day, I'd probably not use it so much as I'm tending to go for slower films at the moment. But that's a personal thing: if you want grainy day shots then this will work perfectly.
I like this film a lot because it offers something a little different: expect a lot of grain in 35mm format but I think it has a really nice aesthetic for it. It's usually worth exposing it closer to 1000 unless you want something super grainy. If you haven't used it before, I'd certainly say err on the side of over-exposure.
This film is ideal for shooting indoor, especially gigs or portraits. It can be grainy but I feel this adds to it, and it’s also a 3200 iso film so what do you expect?! I really back this product.
Develops very well in Ilford DD-X.
I’ll be leaving reviews throughout the website with pictures for full frame scans, so if you’re like me who loves to see the entire image and border, you can see what the results will be like.
