    Here is a scan of one of the negs I shot. It's a bit blown out in the highlights, more due to the scan than the neg. The instruction to develop for 'one speed faster' than the manufacturer recommends in Ilfotec DD-X is a good one for these low light situations.
    As far as I understand it, the normal ISO of the Delta 3200 is around 1000. This was shot at 3200 and developed for the 6400 time. The negs are very easy to print with plenty of detail in shadows and highlights alike.

    I shot from about 150 feet away and got some interesting shots. I used Delta 3200, exposed it at 3200 and developed according to the 6400 recommended time by Ilford in their DD-X chemistry. The negs turned out super, so the recommendation of developing for longer than Ilford recommends I think is definitely a good one (for my purposes anyway).
    Not to say that Ilford is wrong, but I have a feeling most folks use D3200 in poor lighting, which means indoors a lot of times, and if I remember correctly the film speed slows down some in artificial lighting compared to daylight. If that's the case, it all makes sense.
    I love the look of the film / developer combination and will continue to use it for low light. When I get something printed I'll post back here with examples.

    Thanks for all the help, getting nice results using Ei 1000, DDX 1+4 for 8.5 mins at 20 deg c.

    I love D3200 in medium format, where it is the only choice for fast film.
    Ilford state that this is a 1000 ISO film that can be rated to higher EI depending on the developer.
    I have a little test here:

    Once you nail a setting, you'll get a marvellous tone for such a high speed (push)

    The above was shot at EI3200 and developed in Rodinal 1:25 for 11 mins
    In case you haven't guessed I like it!
