Pentax MX and Ilford Delta 400 in Japan
Lens: M 50/1.7, A 28/2.8 Camera: MX Photo Location: Japan ISO: 400 
Posted By: Jonathan Mac, 09-22-2017, 11:45 PM

A few months ago I took a trip to Japan, a place I've dreamed of going for many years. The photographic opportunities there are essentially endless - it's a beautiful and very interesting country. I could have quite happily spent double the amount of time there and not run out of things to photograph.

I took my K3 and DA limited lenses but also shot four rolls of Ilford Delta 400 B&W film, and a roll of Fuji colour film which I haven't had developed yet, in my MX. I had the A 28/2.8, M 50/1.7 and M 120/2.8 with me but I'm not sure I used the 120mm at all on film and the 50mm was used for 90% of the shots.

This was my first time using Delta 400 and I like the results a lot. Good tones (not quite as good as Tri-X but close), fine grain and it dries exceptionally flat, which means scanned results are as sharp as my Epson V500 can manage.

Here are my favourite film shots from the trip, you can see more in my Flickr stream if you like.

I will no doubt post some of these to the B&W film shots thread occasionally, but I wanted to put all my favourites in one thread.
