    I'm looking for a good starting dev time, iso for 4x5 Tri-x 320 in a uniroller using Rodinal. All the info I seem to be able find on the web is for smaller formats. Maybe I should just grab some of those and let it rip.

    I'd go for it but I've found I have to derate the film to about 200 to get acceptable shadow detail when using Rodinal anywhere near the published developing times. Try a sheet or two at some different EIs as well.

    I usually use 85% of the time listed for roll film development when developing 4x5 film using a Jobo 2500 tank on a Beseler roller. It seems to work. I've tried this with D76 and Rodinal and it's a good starting point.

    Good luck.
