I've been using xtol and tri-x and think it's pretty good. I had some issues with tmax 400 and xtol.

So I am wondering what the opinions are on xtol and neopan 400 and delta 400 in medium format?

thanks...

I've shot Delta 400 on 35mm and developed it in XTOL 1+2 for a number of rolls now. I quite like the combination, though I found that rating the Delta at EI400 gave me results that were too flat—I prefer to rate it at EI640 instead.

I process for 8 minutes at 29°C. Grain-wise, it's finer than Tri-X for me though nowhere near a slower film like TMAX 100.

I've used Neopan 400 a few times and developed it in XTOL. At the box speed, it behaves pretty much like Tri-X. I have never tried to push this film.
