                  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 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.

                                              I am working on a specific series of photographs that i only use black and white 120film for and this one is my first choice. [...]. It was the best choice, as the place in Toronto still has not called me back to say they have the film in. As well the price was reasonable.

                                              As with Delta 100, it's quite unforgiving in many circumstances. It is hard to maintain highlights in underdevelopment, and kinks very easily. Otherwise the grain is beautiful when developed in HC-110, and it records midtones wonderfully.
