Ilford Delta 400 overview

  • 1Description

Ilford's Delta 400 Professional is a high-speed black and white negative film featuring core-shell crystal technology in order to produce high sharpness with a fine, uniform grain structure. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° when developed in standard black and white chemistry, making it well-suited to handheld photography and working in difficult lighting conditions. This versatile film also features a broad tonal range and a wide exposure latitude, which is capable of being rated between EI 200 to EI 3200 and being pushed or pulled during development in order to maintain consistent contrast.

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

Ilford Delta 400 reviews

Delta 400 Professional Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 134.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 400 Film I've shot a lot of 400 speed film from Tri-X and Agfapan 400 to HP-5 but never had tried Delta 400 so, I thiought I'd give it a try. It seems to have all the attributes of FP-4 while retaining the 400 speed. What's not to like about that? I developed it in ID-11 1:1 for ten minutes and rated at ASA 250. The negatives looked good but a bit dense so, time will be cut somewhat next time. This seems a superb film for those wanting the box speed of 400 but not the usual grain associated with it. I'm still going to try it with HC-110 and see how the results vary. Experimention is the key to a new film but I think this is a clear cut winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best 400 Speed Film Available. I am new to the Delta 400, I originally shot with the TRI-X for the longest time. But Delta 400 is my new 400 speed film. I shot it at 1600 and got cleaner grain than HP5/TRI-X at 800. Additionally, unlike the TRI-X this Delta 400 is much thinner so it doesn't curl up on you. I read that this film doesn't track in some peoples cameras, well I hate to tell you but it's your camera not the film. There is NO problem with this stuff in either of my F6's. I own two of them and they run this film perfectly. The tonal range is gorgeous as shown in the examples I have provided. It develops very nicely in XTOL, which has been my developer of choice this recent few years. After shooting every other type of film, I think I am set on Delta 400 as my all purpose work horse film. You can shoot this stuff in the bar with no flash at ISO 1600 very nicely (providing you have an F1.4 lens) No matter what experience level your at, whether a student or a working pro, Delta 400 will give you beautiful photographs every time whether printed with an enlarger or scanned and presented digitally!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Correcting my previous review I wanted to change my previous 1-star review. My opinion now is that Delta 400 is not susceptible to broken sprockets. I came to that conclusion mistakenly, and I now see it was the fault of the camera. I'd like to give Delta 400 four stars; it's a nice, less contrasty alternative to Tri-X and I'd use it again. Apologies for the misdiagnosis. Feel free to delete the 1-star review. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Fantastic I've used the Delta-400 for shooting everything from landscapes to portraits, day, night, flash, motion, etc. It's beautiful. It has great tonality and will behave however you want it to. I have had no issues with tracking and it also has some nice endurance and therefore can be handled a little bit. After using Kodak Tri-X and various other b&w's, you'd have to pay me to go away from the Delta. Try it out - you won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Film I use Ilford's Delta 400 for most of my photojournalism work, as well as for wildlife shots in my spare time. Because it's a less contrasty choice than the HP5 it works very nicely for full light outdoor daytime exposures, while still having the range/ability to have boosted contrast in post - for when the light's a less than ideal. Some people say the HP5 is better because of the contrast, and I completely disagree. Very fine grain, very versatile high quality film. Pretty much all I use today, and even was what I preferred back when I was doing more artsy studio portraits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to B&W film I am a college student minoring in photography. The Delta 400 film is my go-to film. I use this film for probably 90% of my assignments. I get a great tonal range, and great contrast, giving me negatives that are easy to print. It also is relatively forgiving in developing errors (I've left it in developer for too long before and still have been alright. Just a little higher in contrast), and even in exposure errors. Being a professional film it does cost more than others geared more towards students (HP5, TriX), but once you know what you're doing, it's well worth the upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best 200 speed film around Right now you may be asking yourself, but isn't Delta 400 a 400 speed film? yes, yes it is, and it functions just fine as a 400 speed film, but when it is pulled to 200, and the development ajusted accordingly, it is the best 200 speed film available. Ilford provides many different development times, with many different developers, for Delta 400 being shot at 200. Normally, I do not pull film, this film is the only exception. So if you need a 200 speed film, this film is your choice. Note: I know a lot of photographers who shoot film 1/3rd to 2/3rds below the box-rated speed (e.g. 400 speed film at 320 or 250iso) and then develop normally; that ISN'T what I am talking about here. What I am suggesting here is shooting at 200 ISO and decreasing your development time according to whatever time the Ilford Delta 400 says with your developer of choice--and if you do that, you will get outstanding results with this film. One last thing: this film is FLAT
