Hello,

I have recently acquired a 4x5 outfit, a Crown Graphic with an Ektar lens, a few film holders for both sheet and roll (6x9) and a tripod (waiting for a better one).

As you can imagine, I am itching to get out there to make some images, but don't have a darkroom set up yet. My question is:
Should I finish my darkroom and develop the film in trays, or should I buy a sheet film tank and use that? I guess I'm asking which gives the best results.

Info: I am planning on using Ilford FP4+ film with either Rodinal or FA1027 developer - if that makes a difference.
It is also my desire to use the negatives for contact printing in some cases, and enlarging in other cases.

Grateful for some insight in this matter,
