    Delta 400 @ Ei 200 in HC-110H

    Hi All. I am about to trial Ilford Delta 400 and reckon to shoot it at 200 and develop very gently in HC-110 dilution H. Has anyone got any examples of this in 35mm ? to start with I will be using very little agitation and add more if the results are too flat. I reckon on 12 minutes @ 20c to start with and agitate every 4 minutes. This recipe works with Neopan 400 and Tri-X. but I would like to have an Ilford back up as insurance against future unavailability. Thanks in advance.

    I shot Delta 400 in 4x5 for the first time recently, and I exposed it at E.I. 200 as I used to with T-Max. It turned out to be significantly overexposed when developed 12 or so minutes in HC-110 dil. H. Your tests may vary, but you may find that 12 minutes is a tad too long. Maybe try 9 or 10 min. to start?

    Then again, every time I have gone to someone else for developing advice I get more answers that I know what to do with. Good luck. I'm going to continue my tests so that when I make the inevitable switch to Ilford films I'll know what I'm doing.

    EDIT: I should say that these 4x5 sheets were tank developed with five gentle inversions every thirty seconds after a first full minute of agitation at 68 degrees F.

    Thanks Jonathan. I will be using way less agitation than that. I hope to use it as a compensating developer. Five invertions to start then two at four minutes and two at eight minutes. I think I will bracket the first film.

    Was that Ilford Delta 400 ? I thought it only excisted in 35 mm and 120 size. Delta 100 , FP4+ and HP5+ are available as sheet film as far as I know.

    First roll developed and drying. At first glance everything looks good. I am looking forward to scanning them. Plenty of detail in shadows and highlights well held in check.
