Very nicely done! Delta 100 is one of my favorite BW films. I alternate between that an Fuji Acros 100 lately. Haven't shot enough of either to decide which I like better.

Did you develop and scan these yourself? If so.....details? Camera/lens?

I didn't develop - I sent the film away through my local "big" store Jacobs Digital. I did, however, scan them myself at University. Thankfully I've managed to strike an agreement with the Photography/Graphic Design people so they let me go in whenever I want to even though I'm doing Civil Engineering (which part of a completely different faculty).

Scanner: Epson 4990, scanned at 1200dpi, fiddled with exposure a bit in photoshop save for the picture of my friend, and the bus stop which are exactly as they were scanned. I would have scanned them at 2400 or higher but I didn't have much space on my USB dongle - it was a spur-of-the-moment decision to go and scan them!

Camera: 1954 1000F - it's fun to use a camera nearly twice as old as I am! :)
Lens: Standard 80 2.8 Tessar

Thank you 1000F

for posting these great B/W images . Taken with a vintage HASSELBLAD ! ! !
For me as well the DELTA 100 and the ACROS 100 are the preferred B/W films . My standard process is :
exposure as 80 ISO and develop in ID11 1+1 .
Your images show very well that your vintage gear still serves great .

Reminds me , that I should put my vintage HASSELBLADS into service again .
I love the closeup of the B/W motorbike .

My favorites would be the one portrait you posted and the one of the laundry hanging on the line. I think the weakest images would be of the motorcycle - granted it's an amazing bike, I feel there is a lot of competition between the bike and the background. - there's my 2 cents.

Thanks to everyone for their kind words! I think I will be buying more Delta 100 in future :)

Actually, I do have a roll of Acros to use... I think I'll do that next
