    35mm/120 Tri-X 400 vs 4x5 Tri-X 320?

    I've pretty much only used Ilford FP4+ when shooting 4x5, but I've largely standardized on Tri-X developed in TMAX Developer for 35mm and 120. Is there any difference between 35mm/120 Tri-X 400 and 4x5 Tri-X 320?

    Thanks, those links definitely help. Sounds like I might as well pass on Tri-X 320, but might want to play around some with HP5. Oddly enough I don't think I've shot any HP5 in 35mm or 120, but I have shot a few sheets of it in 8x10, and I think I have some of it around here somewhere in 4x5.

    Thanks,

    TXP 320 is a really nice film. I use it exactly per the instructions and it works great.

    Of course I can say the exact same thing about HP5. If you have HP5, and have experience with HP5, I see very little reason to start with TXP.
