Does anyone know if Ilford plans to offer the Delta films in 220?



-- Mark (, August 15, 2001


There are no current plans to offer the Delta line of films in 220. However, FP4 Plus and HP5 Plus are offered in 220, in pro-packs of 5 rolls.

David: why not? 100 Delta (along with its competitors TMX and Acros) are the films one would want to use in a Contax vacuum back, not FP4 Plus or HP5 Plus! Please lobby for a 220 version of 100 Delta. Thanks for listening.

Glazer Camera has Delta 400 in 220 on their web site. I was planning on ordering some. Must be a typo?

There is Delta 400 220 out there as I process this regularly for a client. I'm not sure where he gets it from, B&H would be my guess.

Neither B&H Photo nor Calumet have Delta films in 220 size. They do have HP5+ and FP4+ in 220 propacks (5 rolls).

If you lobby Ilford with a large cash purchase amount they will make it for you. 220 doesn't sell so they don't make the film in that size. That is the same reason we don't have Delta 400 in 8x10 unless we are willing to pay for a complete film run.

I've got a bunch of Delta 400 in 220 in my freezer. Guess they must have discontiued it.
