Ilford Delta 3200 film is 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.

Embrace The Grain and Flexibility

I've been wanting to try this film for a while and finally got around to it. There's a huge range of lighting conditions and situations this film works well for- shot through a Hi-matic 7s at 800 ISO, I managed to get great exposure and decent detail with a very appealing grittiness that was less intrusive than could be expected, only some early home development mistakes caused the shots to be less than they could be.

Pics were developed in Cinestill DF96 monobath.

Lovely low-light workhorse

First time using this film stock and I love it for shots at the pub and indoors. Shot it at 1000 and developed at 1600 with DD-X and very pleased with the results. Not too contrast-y but can easily edit that with software. I'm hoping to take some to gigs and concerts for those low-light situations!

Ilford Delta 3200

The character of the images are really unique. I wouldn't use it's as all-purpose because of the amount of grain. But due to speed is perfect for low light situations.

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.
