Ilford Delta 3200 120 Film Review

Here is our Ilford Delta 3200 120 Film Review. We shot a roll on our Yashica 635. So, have a look at our film test and see what you think.

We’ve been waiting for a chance to shoot Ilford Delta 3200, the fastest medium format film available. We thought late January, when darkness sets in early, was an ideal time to try out this high-speed film. So, for our Ilford Delta 3200 120 Film Review, we put a roll in our Yashica 635 and took it out for a walk around Denmark Hill in South London.

These photos were taken late in the afternoon, with daylight fading away. Even in the low light, having such a high speed film meant we could use surprisingly fast shutter speeds. That extra speed made it possible to take all these shots hand held. Definitely a good film to have on hand for evening or night time street shots.

Obviously, there is going to be some grain at 3200 ISO, but as this is medium format, it’s not overwhelming. And the extra grain gives a nice feel to the images. Another plus with Delta 3200 is the amount of shadow detail. There is plenty of information in all areas of the image, as well as a good range of tones.

This film suited the season well. We look forward to shooting it again. Next time we’ll try it out in brighter circumstances.
