ID11 times for Delta3200? : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

Does anyone have development times for Delta 3200 shot at 1250 with either ID-11 or D-76? Ilford seems to have nothing on Delta 3200 development on thier web site. Thanks.

Don't even think about that; you'll get slightly high contrast and all of EI 800.

Actually, Ilford's got the data sheets for most or all of their products on their web site. The D3200 sheet gives D-76, 8 minutes, 68 F, for EI 800 and 9.5 minutes for EI 1600. I've never tried D3200 in D-76, but whenever I've tried John Hicks' advice it's been spot-on, so I'd pay attention to him.

I can tell you Ilford's recommendation of 10= minutes at 3200 is woefully inadequate. Last time I tried 13 minutes and thought it could use a bit more. I'd say the least you'd want to try at 1250 would be 10 minutes (at 680), and probably more.

thanks, per J.Hicks from a different post I used X-tol 1:1 for about 11 min and it worked very well given that these were high key studio portraits, this was kind of an experiment and I just had some ID-11 left over and hate to waste it.

I'd really like to see high-key studio work with a really fast film. I've been thinking about trying such myself. Do you have the ability to post or email some of your results?

Try this site.

It suggests that ID-11 gives slightly finer grain than D-76. It also gives slightly different EI and times for some films in D76 or ID-11. In the "film developement cookbook" it suggests that D76 formulated to be more consistant with different water supplies. ID11 at 1:1 has given me some really excellant negatives over the years.
