Ilford Delta Film 35mm B&W ISO 100
Now: £6.50 GBP
Delta is a modern emulsion from Ilford and this is the daylight-rated variant- created with finer grain to provide sharp black and white images with excellent contrast. 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.

This film is great quality like tha majority of Ilford products, and boasts a really nice high contrast feel, which I think would be great for high fashion shoots.
Though I much prefer the results that I shot out of direct sunlight, which still offer the great minimal grain and contrast, but here the contrast is a lot less harsh.
This is such a versatile film, it works well even in overcast conditions. It produces such a fine grain and works well in most situations.
I'm no expert when it comes to talking about fineness of grain and dynamic ranges, but I know what I like, and I definitely like this film for Street shooting.
It's got a healthy amount of contrast, without being too over the top. I think I'd prefer some of the fine grain of some other 100 ISO films for portrait work (kodak tmax maybe) but there's just something about this film that feels right to me for street shooting.
One of the rare times I got through a whole roll without thinking 'mmmm, that didn't work'. All killer no filler as they say!
Definitely worth the extra pound or two in cost over HP4, if you've got lots of light.
I've not used this film for years, preferring Ilford FP4 and Pan-F. What I rememeber was it appeared finer grained than Pan-F but a stop faster. It has a reputation for being rather clinical in its rendition which is why I preferred FP4, but it's worth a try on my landscape and historical/architectural subjects.
Delta 100 is a sharp modern emulsion. Exposure latitude is reassuringly good. It can be shot at EI 200 but with extra contrast. It doesn’t give that retro look - try Ilford FP4 + instead . If there’s any criticism that would be that it can look quite clinical. I’d never say it looks digital but pretty clean looking.
