    That's my experience and question too. Tom, I've also used Delta 100 to create AZO prints on G2 paper under low and high contrast conditions. Curious, what developer you were using with Delta? Weird.

    Regards, Pete
    Delta 100 4x5 sheet film (also 120 roll film) in Rodinal 50:1. I also have examples developed in Pyrocat-HD 1:1:100. All developed with 5 seconds of agitation per minute. I have duplicate shots on 120 roll film (same camera & lens but smaller area) 6x12 cm negs on J&C New Classic 400 and Delta 100. The J&C 400 handled the extreme contrast situation well, the Delta 100 did not.

    Guess I need to run the film through the densitometer and see if I can figure out what gives.

    I'm waiting for cans of Delta 100 and 400 I've purchased at Ebay, never used them before.

    But from my past experience with TMX, it's very easy to blow highlights with tabular grain films.
    Could this be the reason?

    Blown highlights were my problem, Jorge.

    Delta 100 is a very nice film, don't hesitate using it.

    How do those prints react to selenium toning? My preference in B&W is prints that show a full range of tones and detail.

    But if this is the case it indicates that the negatives were developed to a very high CI, which suggests that the film has excellent expansion capability but that development was too long.

    Good point, Sandy. I need to re-look at the negs and do some densitometry.

    For a diffrent and slightly better result try
    working with Sam Elkind's variation.
    Xtol = 100 mL
    water = 400 mL
    Rodinal = 4 to 5 mL

    Times @ 24 degrees C. are:
    Tri-X (200) = 9 minutes.
    Delta 100 = 10.5 minutes.
    Verichrome = 8.5 minutes.

    this post is Basically a cut and paste job but the results looked
    interesting enough to me and since the suggestions have already included these I thought it'd be something you may want to try.

    I only shoot Delta 100 in 120 and 35, but I am very fond of the film. I do find it is easier to blow out highlights with Delta than with a lot of other films, but I like the range od values and fine grain in delta. Give it a shot and just be careful with metering and developing times. I use D-76 with it BTW.

    I have used Delta 100 in XTOL in various dilutions and have always got excelent results. Prior to XTOL I had used Rodinal and had problems controlling highlights but XTOL takes care of that problem.

    I have also used Pyrocat-HD and although similar to Xtol it gives me great negatives at full film speed, while the Xtol usually gives best results (for me) at an ei of 50-80.

    I don't think I would have the lab develop anything important without first having some test negatives develop. At least you can determine the best ei for the procedures and chemistry that they use.

    I have shot Dlta 100 a few times and developed it in IlfosolS, Rodinal and Id-11

    I liked Delta, even though I prefer the traditional grain films. I found it lacked the "snap" I got from APX100.
    Blown highlights tended to be a problem, no presoaking helped and agitating a tad less tha usual (once a minute) also helped.
