    I don't know what chemicals you have on hand, but I have had much success with Delta 3200 (135) stand developed in Pyrocat HD. You get very sharp negatives with a nice amount of grain. I've only enlarged up to 5x7 with it, so beyond that I don't know how the grain looks. I've tried delta 3200 in in T-max Dev, but it didn't give me the contrast that I was looking for. Good luck in whatever you choose!

    Normally I develop my FP4 in DD-X or D76 and my Technical Pan in Technidol. It doesn't really matter what I have on hand at the moment, I will be ordering the 'grainy' film in the UK to be sent straight to the Isle of Skye and I can order any developer I wish to use with that film.

    Choices, choices :-)

    I've shot Delta 3200 at 3200 in 35mm and processed it according to Ilford's data (DDX 1:4 for however long it says (sorry, can't remember offhand!)) sheet. I found it gave good image quality with very acceptable grain, but I had to work hard to get enough contrast into the prints. I may try different processing times / temps next time around.

    I use DDX for all Ilford films (virtually all the B&W I shoot) and rate it very highly (much better than Ilfosol S)... ...except that Ilford only ship it in a 1 litre bottle (enough for 16 rolls!), meaning I have to batch up my films and then process them in one go (which takes up most of a weekend!).

    Ilford, if you're reading this *please* start putting it in 250ml bottles! I'll settle for 500ml! ANYTHING rather than consigning me to another weekend at the sink! Please?!

    Frank,
    I have found that DD-X actually keeps quite well, as long as you make sure of sealing the bottle tightly, for instance with a thin piece of plastic screwed in between the lid. You are right about DD-X's quality, it is a lovely developer. Unfortunately I cannot buy it in Holland and I have to order it in the UK. This is fine when I am in Scotland, in my friend's darkroom, but if I am at home it costs me an arm and a leg to have chemicals shipped to Holland.

    Thanks anyway for your comments. I think I will give the Delta 3200 a try.

    p.s. does anybody happen to know whether Fuji Neopan 1600 comes in rollfilm?

    I've used it at 3200 and 6400. I now dev it in DD-X, the grain is fairly large and there is not a particulary big spread of tones. I've only pushed films like T-max and tri-x one stop so I can't compare. I have been happy enougth with Delta 3200 prints and it's certainly better than nothing or crude flash lighting.
    A word of caution though, the times on the Ilford site for Delta 3200 and DD-X seem way out, almost a stop out. I dev for 11minutes 30 seconds at 3200asa, that's almost Ilford time for 6400.

    Gareth, do you happen to have an example print of Delta 3200 developed in DD-X?

    Thanks for your warnings about the development time.

    Hello,

    I've used Delta 3200 but usually for my 6x6 I push txp320 to 3200 in D76
    For myself I prefer pushing the tri-x. I've used HP5 for up to 1600 and really like the smooth tones I get from it.

    I'm a bit short on time or I'd dig up some photos for you. I'll see what I can find later.

    Cheers,
    Ian

    ok... while sipping some coffee I found a scan that was already sized and ready to go.

    It's in the non-gallery with the details.
    While you don't see much grain in the scan you do see it in a 8x10 (slight cropping) although it isn't obtrusive.

    Cheers,
    Ian
