Ilford Deltapro (35mm, 3200 iso) user-review

Shooting in the dark: A great film for gigs and concerts, I wouldn't shoot it with a Fisheye though.

Shooting in the dark: A great film for gigs and concerts, I wouldn’t shoot it with a Fisheye though.

After experimenting with 1600 ISO film, I decided to take it up a notch and get some 3200 for a concert I was going to.
I stuck it inside my fisheye 2 and went on my merry way. I used a Colorsplash flash and was stood 1 or 2 meters away.
after developing I noticed that the pictures didn’t come out as well as I expected. The pictures weren’t ‘lit’ well enough for my liking but that may have been to do with the tiny aperture of the fisheye camera.

I would recommend this to a camera which has a larger aperture or for those with a variable aperture ones and I won’t be writing it off completely yet.

    everyone using this film should note that, according to developing tests and experiences, its actual speed is a bit below 3200 ISO. So, if exposed for 3200 and developed according to the suggested procedures, a slight push processing is applied by default and this is likely to be the cause of some over-closed shadows, together with the tiny aperture :)

    if you browse the ilfordphoto.com website you can find some pretty useful specs on this film. They (ilford) have measured it at 1000 ISO. They have also included some usefull development vs. exposure alternatives (eg; when exposed as a 400 ISO, the development time gets significantly shorter)
