Ilford Delta 3200 overview

  • 1Description

Ilford's Delta 3200 Professional is a high-speed black and white negative film for producing prints using a traditional black and white process. The film exhibits a nominal sensitivity of ISO 3200/36°, making it ideal for use in difficult lighting conditions, indoor scenes, and for fast-moving subjects. Standard development in black and white chemistry yields an unobtrusive grain texture with rich tonality and the film also responds exceptionally well to under/over exposure and push/pull development.

This item is one 36-exposure roll of 35mm film in a DX-coded cassette.

Ilford Delta 3200 reviews

Delta 3200 Professional Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my favorite high-speed option I'm currently shooting 10-20 rolls rated at 1600-3200 ISO per week now, and of the various options in that range, Delta 3200 is my least favorite. The grain is muddy, the images seem flat, and so on. It's not a disaster, and I will certainly shoot Delta 3200 when I have to, but I much prefer P3200 for shooting at 3200, and TMAX 400 for shooting at 1600; Neopan 1600 works fine at either speed, and is cheap. R3 looks *cool* at 1600 in RHS. Maybe I need to try some other developers (Rodinal?) but Delta 3200 just isn't my thing. However, it does come in 120, which is handy if you can't get or don't like R3.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grain city, boys and girls! I'm quite fond of this film (though I prefer it at 645 or 6x7, it's handy to have a roll of 35 around). Many people fail to realize this is really about a 1000-1500 ISO film; it needs a fair amount of light to get shadow detail, and when shooting at 3000 and up you can get pretty contrasty (which can really look quite cool). It's wise to test this film with your preferred developer and dial in the speed that works best for your style. It can be a little flat looking at lower ISOs, but it's designed to keep contrast down when pushed. Tweaking your development time and technique can give you some more control.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ilford Delta 3200-my choice I use this film for wedding ceremonies in churches and other low light conditions during the wedding day. It allows me to use available light most of the time (I hate flash). Although its latitude for exposure is smaller than other films, it has a wonderful soft quality about it that other films of its type do not have. Backlit objects take on an almost ethereal glow. I have found that some scanners have difficulties with keeping detail in areas that are surrounded by lighter areas (even though there is plenty of detail in that area).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low light film of choice I am now shooting a couple of dozen Delta 3200 per year, all indoors. I used to use T Max 3200, but my custom lab gets better results from Ilford 3200. You're able to extract a tremendous amount of information from these negatives. I willnever go digital, not when you get such a huge tonal range from this film, far superior to any digital image. Not to mention the fact that these images will be stable infinitely longer than those stored on any digital media. My end use: 16 X 20 prints with nice results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A reliable high speed film I've used Ilford 3200 for years when nothing else would do. It never has failed me. The tonal range - from highlight to shadow - is good. Grain is acceptable. And an added bonus: visible in clear baggie going through customs, it often wins a hand search from reluctant screeners in various countries. They know their machines will destroy ISO 3200. What's not so great? Sometimes, images are not as sharp as pushed Tri-X. I shot a night club jazz concert with both films in M Leicas. Ilford with f2 lens wasn't quite as sharp as Tri-x with f1.0 lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and versatile This film is amazing! It can be exposed at a variety of speeds depending on how it's pushed. So far I've exposed/developed for 1600 and 3200 ISO. The results were best at 3200 but very good at 1600. I developed the film using Agfa R09 Oneshot/Rodinal, which is not the recommended developer. In spite of this the results were fantastic. Smooth tones, incredible dynamic range/latitude and the grain is beautiful. It's a treat to look at images shot on this film; even technically poor photos look good. This is a bit obvious : it is incredibly sensitive to RF radiation; I accidentally took the film through an X-Ray scanner and it increased the grain considerably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great film! I've shot several rolls of Ilford Delta 3200 in my Nikon FE2. I process it myself, and I've made many successful prints from the film as well. It's superb in low-light conditions. Worth the money and paired with a ND filter, versatile in any situation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasant grain, high contrast If you're a night owl or just crave some nice, pleasant grain and high contrast, this film will fit the bill. I was able to recover highlights quite well and the grain is obviously quite high but is uniform and aesthetically pleasing, not like the harsh grain of grocery store film. That being said, beware if you're shooting in a high contrast scene. I was shooting some fire department training indoors with no lights with the firemen standing by the brightly lit window. The shadows were so dark, my scanner had trouble separating the frames and I had to do it manually, which added quite a bit more time to the process. But for regular contrast scenes, it shouldn't be a problem
