    need dev time for Ilford Delta 3200

    Does anybody have a time/temp rec for Ilford Delta 3200 120mm shot at 1600?
    The ones i've found online haven't worked very good at all. I'm using Kodak Microdol-X for my developer. The negatives look under developed and i could just experiment but thought i would ask around first.
    Thanks

    For 1600 ?
    Probably about 18 minutes in Microdol-X straight -
    but I get good results developing it in XTOL 1+2 for 21.5 minutes.

    I use Ilford's time for the next speed up. In other words, if you shoot it at 1600, use Ilford's time for 3200. Others had recommended this, and it works for me.

    I'm with JohnnyWalker; whatever Ilford recommend for 3200. Have never used Microdol-X but it works for DD-X and for ID11/D76. Am very happy with the DD-X personally and very very happy with Delta 3200 in 120 at 1600: don't notice the grain and lovely tonality, so I hope you do persevere and get it to work for you.
