    Favourite Delta Dev

    Greetings Filmista's,

    When I started shooting MF, I quickly fell in love with Delta 100...that was before trying FP4+. Since that fateful day, my supply of Delta 100 has lanquised in the freezer, neglected.

    Since I have a few rolls of the stuff doing not much at all, I have decided to have a bit of a play with other developers to see what I can get out of it. In the past, I have been a strictly D76 person (Is that the 'missionary' of dev's?), but I have relented and bought some Rodinal, which I will soup some D100 in to see what I will get.

    So, firstly, what are peoples preferred way of processing Delta 100 in Rodinal (please also mention recommended agitation).

    Secondly, do you have a favourite Delta 100/dev combo? I'm curious to hear what others are doing with that film

    Cheers

    Anything ilford I stick with ilford developer, and I only use low ASA's for ilford (except the D3200) so I strictly use Ilfsol 3 which was specifically designed for low ASA ilford film, its newer and not as many people have tried it but they should. so try that, I use the 1+9 mixture.

    May I ask why you prefer FP4+ over Delta now? I´m a fan of FP4+ but never used the Delta. I´ve read that DDX is recommended for use with the Delta line.

    Fp4, from my experience is more forgiving.

    I've been using Pyrocat HD with Delta 100 and 400 for the past 5 years with superb results.

    Yeah that, although instead of or in addition to more forgiving I might say more automatic or more reliable or even easier to use.

    I've had better luck taming Delta 100 by paring it with a staining developer, WD2D+ in my case.

    Yesterday I shot a roll of Delta 100 and developed in Rodinal 1+50 for 18 minutes. I was very happy with the results. I normally use DD-X.
