    Not having your own developing equipment: Do you plan on developing it yourself or using a lab?

    I'm planning on doing it myself. There's only one lab (as far as I know) that still does BW dev and printing in this part of the world and I can't afford it.

    That's good. Always best to do it yourself IMO.

    I know you already have the Delta 3200 now, but for times when EI 1250-1600 is fast enough, try Tri-X in Diafine. I know there are some recommendations above for Delta 3200 at 1600, but I never go to TMZ or Delta 3200 if 1600 is fast enough - I've yet to find anything I like as much as Tri-X in Diafine in that speed range. I shoot it at 1250 but that 1/3 stop is a quibble for black and white and 1600 is quite workable.

    For 3200 I go to TMZ in 35mm or Delta 3200 in 120. I've got decent results from TMZ at 6400 too (developed per recommendations for 12,500) but have yet to try Delta 3200 above 3200.

    Pardon my language, but FUUUUUCCCCKKKKK. When I said at the start of the thread that I "ordered" some Delta 3200, I actually meant "I asked my dad to swing by the store and buy 4 rolls." Online ordering isn't popular here. Since my dad isn't in to photography, he had me write down what he was supposed to buy. So I wrote on a piece of letter sized paper in huge letters ILFORD DELTA 3200 35MM. He went to the store and handed the paper to the cashier. Guess what my dad came back with: 2 rolls of ILFORD DELTA 3200 in 120 size! My dad can't tell 120 from 35mm so it's definitely not his fault. I just don't understand how someone can make such an error when the words ILFORD DELTA 3200 35MM are plainly readable! What the hell! I guess this leaves two possibilities:

    1. The cashier is just an idiot.
    2. They don't sell any Ilford Delta in 35mm and assumed that 120 would do. This is weird since their site shows 35mm rolls, not 120.

    I'm seriously hoping that the cashier is just an idiot. At least I can consider those rolls of 120 as a sign that I'll be a future medium format camera owner. Damn it. My dad's going back tomorrow to get the film exchanged for 35mm. If they don't have 35mm I'm going to cry. Seriously. The next place that sells B&W film (as far as I know) is much farther away so it's out of the question.

    That's it. I'm moving to a place near the B&H Superstore when I grow up.

    I'm already crying a bit.

    Don't despair, just get a camera to fit the film.

    Heh, my mom is already pretty ticked off at me for still using 35mm film. She says its inferior in quality and expensive. Pssshh. I can only imagine how angry she'd be if I come home with a medium format camera. :P

    I prefer it at ISO 1600 developed in XTOL full strengs 7 Minute at 24° Celcius works very nice!

    My dad came back from the photo store with 2 rolls of XP2 Super 400. Apparently, they don't sell Delta 3200 in 35mm, only 120. Which is weird since I called them up and they said that they did. Goddamnit.

    :'(

    Don't be so disappointed. XP2 Super can easily be shot at EI 1,000 without much quality loss. With a fast lens you shouldn't have problems. It's great film, but has to be developed in C41 chemistry.
    And, it will be a lot less grainy. I used this film a fair bit years ago, and could easily make 9x12" prints that didn't show much grain at all, comparable to normal ISO 100 films, actually.
