Ilford Delta 400 (Review)(120 Ilford Delta film)
A mini article / Ilford Delta 400 review after shooting my few first rolls of Delta 400 film. These rolls of film had been kindly gifted to me by someone on Facebook (part of a larger batch). It was expired Delta 400 film but I still loved the results!
Expired Ilford Delta 400 film
I was recently gifted a mixed batch of unrefrigerated expired camera film and some of the rolls were medium format 120 Ilford Delta 400 film dating back to 2006. I thought I would try a shooting a few rolls to see how I got on. I decided to expose the first film at 400@200 and developed in Rodinal. Some of the photos were a little dark so for the next roll I exposed at 400@100. Here are the results from recent model photography shoots in my Coventry studio. Cameras including my Mamiya 645 Super, Mamiya RZ 67 and 4×5 large format Pacemaker Speed Graphic with a 120 roll film back.
