Anybody shooting Delta 100 in 8x10?
On a recent trip to CA i exposed a few sheets of Delta 100 All have defects on the back, not the emulsion side.
The defects looks like surface to drum (Jobo Expert 3005) problems and my initial thought was that i had induced some moisture when reloading in the Motel i stayed at. (How is that possible in SoCal) Today i took a couple of test shots and i see the same problem.
I have developed TMY and Foma 200 in between the Delta 100 and have no problems what so ever. The process is: 3 to 4 minute pre wash, 16 minute 1+1+100 Pyrocat MC two stop rinse in clean water and Zonal Pro or TF-4 Fix. 20 minute wash.
I have developed Delta 100 in 4x5 and 5x7 and all are coming out fine.
Looks like a 3th tier product but i need some facts before i write of Ilford for good.
I like the look of Delta 100 but if i can't trust the QA @ Ilford i will spend my money elsewhere.
