Delta 400 120 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.

I used a roll of Delta 400 in my Goodman Zone Z1 after not having used the camera for a while. I was amazed that I remember what to do and got a couple of decent photos. I could have used a cheaper film, but having not used Delta 400 in medium format I gave it a try. It's a great film for all skills levels.
This is a lovely film, a bit more expensive than the other 400 ISO options HP5+ and Kentmere 400 but for that extra money you get sharper images with finer grain. However there is less exposure latitude so you need to get your exposure correct, something that you can recover a bit with stand development but otherwise can give a contrasty look that many people prefer.
Great film. It's been a while since I've used it and forgotten just how clean it can be. Lovely tonality with rich blacks and lots of detail.
Yep, I used Delta 400 in a Holga 120, it was the only 400 ASA 120 stock I had to hand.
Even with the limitations of the camera, it doesn't hide that Delta 400 is an excellent film, with great tonal range without sacrificing the black and white areas, resulting in both solid contrast with a wide range of grey tones. Add in the visible, but wonderfully even grain, that while more visible than Delta 100, doesn't overly detract from the images.
While I was visiting the north west, my good friend Jim Graves gave me a roll of Delta 400 to try in my Mamiyaflex C2.
On the Saturday afternoon we had a few hours around the Albert Dock and Pier Head areas of Liverpool, and I chose to shoot the roll of Delta 400 he'd given me.
This was my first time trying this film in 120, as I'm still quite new to medium format, and I must say that I'm quite sure I'll be shooting more of it in the future, even though it was a bit awkward to load onto the Patterson spiral, as the film was quite curly...but I managed it with a bit of care.
