    Long-expired Delta 3200

    I recently shot a roll of Ilford Delta 3200 that expired in 2006. I bought it last year and immediately stuck in in the freezer.

    I'm surprised at how well the images appear, at least as far as scans show. I had heard this film ages poorly and will be foggy. Am I not seeing the fog? This image, for example, looks fine to me.



    Note - I shot the film at ASA 1000, and developed it in Xtol (stock) as if shot at ASA 1600 with minimal agitation.

    Haven't tried the Delta 3200, but I recently picked up a bunch of Tmax 3200 that expired in '06 and it's coming out foggy unfortunately. It's not too bad, but enough so that I need at least a 3-1/2 or 4 filter for most images.

    You will have fog - it's unavoidable. That doesn't mean that you can't get decent results. Freezing helps minimize the fog (although it can't eliminate it).

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
