    What do you all think of the two films? I loved Neopan 400, and have migrated over to Delta 400 with nice results. Just wondering what you all think?

    Thanks

    I like all 3 films you mention, I do prefer Delta 400. Just seems to have a slightly better overall tonal range, ( I develop with D-76 and wet print all my BW in the darkroom using a cold light enlarger head). T-Max does "push" very well, In my mind better that Fuji or Ilford.

    Tmax seemed to me to be more contrasty. Where as Delta seems to have more detail in the shadows. I guess it comes down to your preferred look to be. As mentioned, TMaxx will push better, if that is what your looking for, and want a wider tonal range, than the Ilford HP5+ may be worth a look as well.
