    Bennett, that maybe because Delta 400 isn't available in 5x4 anymore it was discontinued sometime ago. I use Delta 400 in my 6x17 camera and it's a superb film.

    You don't have many choices in 4x5 for ISO 400:

    Ilford HP5+
    Kodak TMax 400
    Rollei Infrared 400
    Kodak Tri-X 320 (almost 400 anyway)

    It's a shame Foma doesn't make their 400 speed film in sheets.

    With so few choices you can test them all.
    - Expect Tri-X to have brilliant highlights and less separation in the shadow tones than most other films, unless you use the film at a different exposure index than 320.
    - Expect HP5+ to give you extremely pleasing midtones, with lots of separation.
    - Expect TMax 400 to have a very linear response to light, meaning that color and brightness wise it's very neutral in its response.
    - I have no idea of what to expect of Rollei. Their technical data sheet is here: Click this link

    The top three are fantastic films, no idea about Rollei. Only you can decide what you like.

    Thanks Thomas:

    I'll start with the HP5+ I think.
