Ilford continue their range of high-quality 'professional' black and white films with their range of Delta 100 film. I have used Delta 100 for many high-quality images, and it is an absolutely brilliant film - it serves purposes like landscapes and portraiture with a distinct style and grace. It is a flexible film in that way - it can be pushed and pulled, and it develops well in T-Max developer (1+4), taking around seven minutes to develop at an exposure of 100.

I am almost tempted to make Delta 100 part of my usual repertoire - I have only used a moderate amount of it, in both 135 and 120 formats, and the results have, for the most part, been good. It is another solid product from Ilford, and I'd reccomend it strongly - it picks up the level of detail I require perfectly, and it's response to light is better than expected for film that can be bought for such a low price (esp. if ordered online).

This is a solid film, and it's responses are very usable for printing. At this speed, it really is best of breed. The new range of Fuji Acros 100 film is also rather good. Let Delta 100 be part of your black and white arsenal, and enjoy the high-quality results.

I'd reccomend it to anybody who's mastered the basics of photography, and wants to have a high quality, usable film for development at home.

(Oh, and how can I rate the colour / saturation? This is black and white... Oh heck, I'll give it top marks...)

That's because the price varies so much on where you buy it. If you buy the film mail order from somewhere like 7dayshop, you might pay about 1.20 for it. If you buy it in the shops, get prepared to be ripped off.

You have left out the price... otherwise a good review:) -Jon
