Ilford Delta 400 - 35mm Film
Our Price: £7.25 GBP100134
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 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.

Just ran a roll of this on impulse to try out a new-to-me Canon EOS 5 shooting the moon.
Pushed to 800 to get shutter speeds up and was worried the grain increase might spoil things. But the film coped wonderfully. Moon was shot with Prinz Galaxy 400mm lens with T2 - Pentax adapter, 2x teleconverter, and second adapter Pentax - EF so any loss of sharpness is as much (or more!) down to the lens set-up as the film.
Second pic was a throwaway frame of our puppies to try out the built-in flash on the camera with Sirius 70-210 zoom.
Developed in Microphen and scanned @6400DPI on Epson 600. Crop of moon is about 1/4 frame .
Probably the most versatile of the Deltas and definitely one I'll be keeping around.
The film enables good quality images to be captured even when set up and shooting is sloppy. Very comforting range of success even if exposures are not right for the situation. I was testing a camera and very happy with the results.
I tried this film in the middle of last year and found that it was gear in midtone shadows but poor in highlights but that was probably due to my processing.
Processed in Ilfosol 3 for 7 min. It is reminiscent of old 1960's films and I like the results. Highlight could be corrected by burning in as there is detail there
To me Ilford Delta 400 is a 3* for sure I love high contrast and this does not do it for me. I find it to flat for my liking. However that could be down to my possessing. So why did I give it a 4*? I have used delta in the passed and know it was not for me. But I wanted to experiment pus processing it to 3200 to compare it to Ilford Delta 3200. And I think it is better pushed to 3200 than Delta 3200 itself. All the photos you see are at 400 other than the one marked showing the comparison. Both films were developed in Microphen. In conclusion I would use Delta pushed to 3200 over buying Ilford Delta 3200.
