Ilford Delta 400 - 120 Film
Our Price: £6.00 GBP100135
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.

More contrasty than HP5, finer grained, doesn't do as well in traditional developers though due to T-grain. I shoot it a lot and still have a fridge full of the stuff, it's gorgeous. Needs more accurate metering than HP5, but handles underexposure and pushes well.
Great film for those looking for a little more contrast and character than HP5, which I can find a little flat sometimes.
I chose Delta 400 for its fine grain and contrast to test the close-up focussing of a Rick Olsen (USA) micro-prism viewing screen in my Hasselblad 503CW+80mm lens, using it at the minimum focussing distance of 0.93m. The photo subjects were chosen for the test rather than their aesthetics!
From the film point of view the results didn't disappoint with really good detail, grain and contrast, and showed the viewing screen to be working perfectly.
I shall use this again for a broader subject range in street and architecture, and it's a safe option for beginners, or those wishing to change from the subject matter that they usually photograph.
