I came across this review of Delta 400 by Jay Abend. here is his conclusion (using ID11)
"While I still think that the base 400 speed Delta is lacking a bit of magic, I do find some magic in the film at 1600. The client and I chose several of the 1600 speed shots to use in the catalog for the jewelry, preferring the creamy highlights, inky black shadows, and smudgy details to the near perfect 400 results. Go figure."
"Today, with digital running over nearly everything in its path, it's not only refreshing to see a new black and white film stock, it's essential. Film like this gives you a look and a feel that you just can't get with pixels and Photoshop. While all of these images were eventually scanned for reproduction, we never could get the D30 images to reproduce the film noir look of the 1600 speed Delta. In many respects the reformulated Delta 400 isn't surprising at all. It's a logical improvement of the fine existing film stock. I loved the increased exposure latitude, the slightly finer grain, and especially the improved pushability. It's time to set up the enlargers again!"
