Morten it looks like you tamed the Delta 100 to me ... good work.
Thanks! Your comment warms my heart!
I think I have good control over Delta 100 and Rodinal now. The negatives prints very easily. No reason to print on grade 4 or grade 0. The portraits are great on grade 2 EVERY time!
I will be using this combo from now on as I really like the tones better than the ones of Pan F+. But how long will the Ilford range be available? I would be sad to face that I need to experience with a new film for portraits and still-lifes.
Morten, My only prediction for the future is that the Ilford range will continue to be available, even if it gets produced by some other manufacturer in the future. The UK had a long history of producing excellent products which fail under poor management and get bought up my overseas companies who have a long success with the product. I'm sure the Ilford range will fall into the same hall of fame and we will be using the materials for many years to come. I even managed to get hold of a load of Delta 3200 again from my local supplier this week
Beautiful picture!! I think you have tamed the Delta 100 beast!
I have fought like a tiger with Delta 100 in Rodinal in the past (shot @ iso 100) and found that I liked it much better at iso 50. But I'm going to give it another shot with your application!
Thanks. I will try it your way @ 50. I like it @ 100, but @ 50 it could be a great substitute for Pan F+. I am about to test Delta 100 at different speeds to get a slow film for almost all my stuff. I try it @ 25, 32, 50, 64, 80, 100 and 125 to see what will work and what will not.
