      Not quite as much exposure latitude as some of the conventional films , but Delta has finer grain and a bit more sharpness. Very nice indeed!

                      My favorite film for most work. Should be noted that it's low contrast. The speed is 400, but the fidelity looks closer to 100 or 200 speed film.

                        I'm an Ilford user from way back. The Delta-400 Professional is another great product. It's consistant, low-grain and the ISO allows for shooting in light that would frustrate me with 100. The added dimension of the medium format makes this an ideal choice when the details can't get lost.

                            I use this for low light (out doors and some in door) shots with a Graflex Century Graphic 2x3 and it gives me great results. I love the low grain for it being a 400 ISO and the fact that you can push or pull this film pretty well.

                              First of all, I would like to say that Ilford film, even before this new Delta technology, has been the best film I've ever used for black and white photography. I like to work with medium format film of this particular speed, and I am very pleased with the smoothness of the grain. It feels like I am shooting with a ISO 100 speed film but with a faster speed.

                                    I haven't been using film that long but I really like Ilford. If you don't want mistakes or are newer to the film practise this is the film to use!

                                            I needed film for my hasselblad so bought some Ilford Delta 400 and it is awesome. The grains great and it creates great dark tones. Cant go wrong with Ilford.

                                              I use Delta 400 as all around daily film.
                                              The grain and metallic like tones are awesome, and the developing envelope is HUGE! i can shoot it +\- 3 stops and get workbale results from a straight developer.
