    This may not be relevant for pesphoto, given that s/he uses Tri-X, but some films do differ between formats. Foma films, for instance, have poor anti-halation characteristics and a clear-to-gray base in 35mm, but better anti-halation with a distinctly blue base in MF.

    TX/D76 will set you up nicely, but I'd definitely try a tanning/staining dev some time, as the tonality from these is seriously smooth and good enough to eat!

    TMax gets slammed a lot, but I like TMax 100 + Rodinal (1:75). Great combination.

    Ilford FP4+ is a wonderful film. If you're going to give the camera a try, just get something inexpensive but reliable. Tri-X will give you enough speed that you can hand hold most of your shots.

    Check those foam seals. On almost any Japanese camera more than 15 years old, those will need to be replaced. It's not a difficult job, but it's one that should be done.

    um...well......I guess I realized I prefer my 35mm and sold it soon after I tried it.
    But if you want to try 645 its a nice camera, not too huge.

    FP4+ and Ilford Ilfotec LC29 (1+19) at 8 minutes - consistent and predictable
