    I loved APX100, but only shot it in 35mm. I will be anxious to try APX400 in 4x5! I am about to order some more 4x5 so I am going to get some 400 and give it a go.
    I am enjoying all the information this thread is producing.

    My only B&W film is TMY-2, aka 400Tmax.

    I prefer 25 and 100 speed films for nearly everything I shoot in all formats. I do occasionally shoot TMY2 4x5 and I have half a box of Tri-X 320 stashed in the freezer for my 4x5

    I tend to shoot Tmax 100 almost all the time. I do, however, usually have at least two holders with Tmax 400 with me, just in case circumstances favor it over 100.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    I use a lot if 400 (HP5 rated at 320) as I need a fairly fast shutter speed on the gray days that we tend to have in the UK. However recently I have been experimenting with Fomapan 100 (rated at 50) and actually like the contrast I am getting with it. On a still day I now use as slow a film as I can get away with. I have a very old meniscus lens mounted in a modern press shutter that really needs to be used wide open to get the full effect. When its very bright these slow films come in very handy.

    I have used Tri-X 320 for decades. For my process, it gets rated at EI 160, so it's not substantially faster than FP4+, which I rate at 80-125 depending on the scene. I have used T-Max 400 in 4x5, and I like it, but I haven't used it lately. I don't find myself needing the faster film these days. My exposures tend to be long.

    You are right but Retro400s is not Retro400.
