    I've got one roll of Delta 3200 and the only developer I have handy is Gamma Plus. I can't find any data as far as a start time for this combo. Anybody have a suggestion or an educated guess?

    Thanks!

    I've never used Gamma Plus, but a couple of weeks ago I shot Delta 3200 (@ 3200) and Tri-X (@1600) at the same occasion.
    I developed both in Ilfotec DD-X for sixteen minutes at 70*F, and they came out with the Tri-X a bit denser in the highlights.
    That leads me to think that if you have a starting time for Tri-X @ 1600 you'll have something worthwhile for Delta 3200 @ 3200.

    Like I said - don't know if it'll help...
