Ilford Delta 3200


Despite it’s high ISO, Delta 3200 is truly the most light hungry film of all the black and white film stocks. As you can see in the comparison below, this film stock responds well to overexposure. The closer you rate this film to box speed, the grainier it will become. If you want to reduce this grain, you’ll want to overexpose more.  The images below were shot inside of a parking garage without clean light available. You can see in this example that Delta 3200 yields much better results in low light when rated at 1000 ISO rather than 3200 ISO. Delta 3200 also does well when it is pushed in development if you want a high contrast look.
