    Comments about Ilford Delta-400 Professional 135-24 Black & White Print Film (ISO-400):

    I use this film in 35mm format and process it in XTOL. I am very happy with the way it captures tones from shadows to highlights and does it with minimal grain. I also noticed that it dries flatter than Tri-X. he only con is that it's more expensive than Tri-X.

          Delta 400 has good latitude, low grain, and little curl - making for easier scans.

          Even though I thought I ordered 36 exposures and not 24, this works just as well. I like Ilford's Delta 400 film the best compared to any other type of film.

            I use this as my go to b&w for street photography. The contrast on this film is really deep and produces very dramatic photos which is something I really enjoy about it. Something to think about if you're new to shooting film and really want black and white, this can't be processed at your local 24 hour photo center and will cost a bit more to get developed. If thats something that's going to bother you, check out the Ilford XP2.

              I'm taking this film with me to Thailand when I leave in a week. I plan to capture all kinds of things while I'm there and use them in shows later. This is my favorite kind of film to use and the pictures are always phenomenal.

                I always used TriX or TMax film. I gave Ilford a try and I'm sticking with it! Easy to develop on my own. I'm sold. I use it in my NIKON FE. I will be buying again.

                      I use the product in my upper level photography class at the college I attend.

                      What I like about this film is that it's easy to use and develop and the contrast is very good. The grain is also good.

                      What I don't like about it is that it's easily scratched.

                          This is my favorite film. I use it in a 35 mm Pentax Camera from the 60's and it's great. This is the only kind I buy, because it has awesome sharpness and contrast.
