Ilford to Continue Producing Delta 3200

Finally, some good news to us film photography lovers and lomographers: amidst the unfortunate discontinuance of several films recently, Ilford remains committed to the film business. In case you haven't learned about it yet, read on to learn more about this awesome news!

Film company Ilford has recently announced that it has no plans of ceasing production of their high speed black and white film, Delta 3200. This bodes well for all of us lovers of film, but most especially for those who find themselves leaning more towards black and white photography.

To put things into perspective, Kodak has recently decided to kill several of its slide films, and also their highly lauded high speed film, the T-Max P3200. Ilford, however, wishes to remind and assure their customers that “they have no plans to discontinue their own film, and as with all their products, production will continue.”

While not exactly ISO 3200 films, Ilford Delta 3200 and Kodak T-Max 3200 are around ISO 1000 black and white films that can be comfortably pushed to ISO 3200 for low-light photography.

    You can easily push Ilford Delta 3200 to 12800 ISO using fresh Microphen developer with good prints results in darkroom! Great film!
