    I got some film in the mail today, 120 for my Holga, but I must have ordered the wrong kind. Instead of the Ilford HP5, I got the Delta 400, which from what I've read is more for professional stuff.

    If I shoot this in my Holga is it going to be bad? Can I still use it?

    I haven't tried Delta 400, but I see no reason you shouldn't try it out and see what it does in your Holga. Just remember to look up the right developing times for it.

    If you can shoot HP5, using delta shouldnt be a problem. I mainly use delta 400 and It's great.:thumbup:

    Yeah I heard the Delta 400 film has a great contrast. Should work great.
