One hitherto unmentioned use of the proposed product would be finding all the flaws in the ancient Korona, Folmer etc. holders that are often pressed into service in this field.

I shoot portraits in low, quiet light. They are in focus and everything. But today, it's Leica-ville. 1/60@f/2 with 400 film. A waste of time with anything larger.
Delta 3200 in 8x10 and 11x14 means shooting without reciprocity failure, and realistic exposures from 1/4 to 1/50. And that means platinum prints that can be saleable and easy.
Yes, absolutely. Yes. Take off your tie, Simon, and go spool the coating machine. You wouldn't be toying with us, would you ???

Count me in as well. Such a magnificent film speed for ULF is mind boggling and would mean that there would be situations in low light or with some wind that would not be anywhere near off limits. The concept is making me smile very wide.....
I am assuming Sandy that you have already evaluated this film and find its properties suitable for alt processes and Azo?
I am assuming that coating the Delta 3200 emulsion onto a sheet film base will not only open the market to ULF use, but also to more common sheet film sizes as well (4X5, 8X10). All LF shooters could potentially benefit from the availability of a high speed film.
Delta 3200 in 4X5 for hand-held available light shooting sounds wonderful.
Long-live hand-held 4X5 photography!

Anyone care to post work from 3200? Any alt process work? (not baiting, just curious!)
Just to keep things in perspective, Delta 3200 is arguably an 800-1000 speed film, so it would be like having a better version of Royal-X Pan, I suppose. I'd certainly try it.
I would certainly try Delta 3200 in 8x10. Puny little negs, I know... but if you are considering it for ULF, could some tiny little 8x10's be a byproduct?
I second (or third or whatever we're at, plus one) that comment. I'd buy a few hundred sheets of 3200 in 8x10 for the freezer. I'd like to see it in 4x5 also since it's just a matter of cutting it down, and in even proportion so there's no waste!

I don't know about alt processes but, for Azo, have a look at Delta 3200's curves here:

Also, as someone who can see the grain in a 320 TXP contact print on grade 3 Azo (and uses FP4 Plus instead), I'm not sure Delta 3200 wouldn't be worse, especially if one developed it longer to overcome those rolled-off highlights.
