About Ilford

400 DELTA PROFESSIONAL is a fast, fine grain black and white film, ideal for pictorial and fine art photography. This improved version builds on the quality and reputation of ILFORD 400 DELTA. Compared with 400 DELTA, it has finer grain, better tonal rendition and a true 400 speed. Prints made from 400 DELTA PROFESSIONAL film exposed at EI 400/27 have very fine grain and outstanding sharpness. In fact the results are similar to those expected from a conventional medium speed black and white film. The superb image quality of 400 DELTA PROFESSIONAL means that it is possible to use this film in situations that would usually require a medium speed film. Its EI 400/27 speed rating, however, allows the use of higher shutter speeds or greater depth of field than with a medium speed film while giving similar quality results. Additionally, the fast speed of 400 DELTA PROFESSIONAL ensures excellent results in low lighting conditions. 400 DELTA PROFESSIONAL is more than an ISO 400/27° film. Its exposure latitude allows good quality results to be obtained over the exposure range EI 200/24 to EI 1600/33. 400 DELTA PROFESSIONAL is compatible with all major processing systems and can be processed in all popular developers.

With 400 DELTA PROFESSIONAL, ILFORD has created a truly remarkable black and white film.Thanks to revolutionary core shell emulsion technology, it has a level of sharpness and freedom from grain that belies the film's light grabbing ISO 400 speed. The most significant technology shift is in shadow rendition: thin areas of the negative are slightly denser and hold detail much better. DELTA film has wide exposure latitude and a tonal range that matches easily on both graded and variable contrast printing papers. ILFORD 400 DELTA PROFESSIONAL is the ideal choice for applications that demand high quality, but where extra film speed is an advantage. It is suitable for pictorial, fine art as well as fashion photography and for many areas that were formerly the preserve of slower films.

For the creative photographer, the combination of speed and precision is a liberation: hand held portraits in available light have smooth skin tones and tack-sharp detail; reportage photography no longer suffers from gritty, conspicuous grain. For studio photographers, the film's high speed spells smaller apertures, shorter exposures and lower lighting requirements - without any quality sacrifices. ILFORD 400 DELTA PROFESSIONAL excels in the darkroom too: it pushes well and delivers its superb performance in the widest range of developers.

one of the best


from Bloomington,IN  -  Photo Enthusiast

One of the best 400 ISO BW film.


Classic Staple


from oregon  -  Photo Enthusiast

As one of the first films many art students use, delta400 has a warm place in many hearts. I use it because of it's consistency, which is also why it makes a great teaching tool. For "fun film" to blow through I prefer hp5 plus.

It's just always good


from Winona, MN  -  Pro Photographer

This is my favorite 400 speed black and white film. It is consistent and the grain is really appealing to me, and best of all it scans very well (I'm using an Epson V500, and occasionally a 4990), and unlike some other films, Delta 400 comes out looking refined but not brittle. I highly recommend this film.

long time tx users look at this.


from seoul korea  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

i candid shoot almost every bw films. maybe thats a little old fashioned ,but i love doing so. natural light and exsisting lights vary alot from time ,weather to locations.. some bw films output great in sunlight some jus dont but some films render noticebly better in tungsten lightings i have stick to using tx400 for solong(i'm not a heavy user) i thought why not give it a try for a twist..yeah! it just quaked the foundation of tx in my brain. it outputs great tonallity good grain , good shadow detail espacially tungsten lighting conditions make this film standout. i'm not saying that this film was made for tunsten but it gives out a very smooth gradation only soft tung -sten and delta combined can offer. even in the daylight i hope you try delta after it has rained and the sun is comming out.
